Not Quite A Bento

Okay, let me begin by saying that this is not quite a bento. I would call it a bentoesque snack tray and admittedly, it is in no way as lovely or artistic as the bentos or snack trays I have been looking at the past couple of weeks. I made it for my Guinea pig husband last night. Not exactly a masculine meal, but he loved it and suggested I take a picture. So here it is, my first documented bentoesque snack. Homemade cinnamon applesauce, fresh figs, marinated cucumbers, carrot sticks, jewel tomatoes, zucchini sticks, ranch dressing, whole wheat crackers, cheese triangle, ham roll ups, cheddar sheep, and banana and Nutella mini sandwiches.

Not so bento and not so pretty, but I'm proud all the same.

Happy day, peeps!


  1. That's soooo pretty, Slushy! Is that a llama on the tomatoes? Too cute. I'm headed to Concord Mills tomorrow and will see if any cute bento boxes can be found at Sanrio.

  2. That's the cutest not-quite-a-bento ever. like candy.

  3. Why thanks, Fickle Cattle. :) I've been shopping for vintage compartment trays to make some more!

  4. Cute and nicely varied bento--the cheddar sheep is a really sweet touch!

  5. Thanks bentobird!!! I appreciate the positive feedback. I can't wait to make more! Next time may have to be a mommy bento. :)
