Well, it's Monday already and as you could tell from last week's posts, I've been having a bento mental block. I really need a vacation! lol. But today I'm back! I stumbled across this blog over the weekend. I was staring at my dwindling pile of beautiful wrapping paper and made an origami paper crane out of one. Then I thought it would be fun to make an origami bento lunch! I couldn't decide over an owl or a cat. The cat won out.
I added a fish sammie just to tease the cat! The sandwichs are made with Keira's favourite jambon haché (chopped ham) filling and I cut out the mouth, ears and feet from cheddar cheese. I wanted to add green eyes to my kitty so I used green icing. There's a mini yellow plum under the paper crane as well. I added more goldfish crackers but in a dotty cellophane sac thinking it would be more fun to eat out of.
While I was freehand cutting the origami lunch, Keira came groggily downstairs to check out what I was doing and decided to make my lunch! She really loves to help out so I cut my panini bread in half and let her fill it up. I had to convince her that mustard is yummy cuz when I asked her to add some to my panini she exclaimed, 'Eww! das yucky! is not good'. hehe.
Lunch complete! Hope you all have a great Monday!
