Lunchbots Quad Bento Lunchbox: Floral Fun
Ham sandwich flowers, baby carrots with ranch dip (in round container), blueberries,cantaloupe flowers watermelon flowers and a pineapple skewer.
Ok. Just practicing to see how long it would take to make a kind of healthy bento lunch for the kids. Not bad. everything was put together fast because I used the same cutter and foods were compartmentalized. With the Lunchbox Quad it seems easier because I don't have to worry too much about variety. The quad forces me to put in different things.
I used my metal flower cookie cutter to cut out the sandwich and fruit shapes. That feels somewhat good because I haven't been baking much >.< and my bakeware has been sitting unused for a while.
I am thinking about making some other mini foods for the quad. The gurlz love mini foods and I think making bento could re-invigorate my lack of passion for baking since going GF.
On my to do list: mochi cakes, mini shortbread lavender cookies, mini scones, mini frittattas...
I'm getting excited thinking about it :)
Hope I can keep it up through crazy September!
