First, thanks everyone for your encouraging comments! I'm shamed because there are people worse off than me out there. Who am I to cry over lost photos, a scrape and some wasps?? So.. shame on me. I have so much to be thankful for! Like my healthy family and .. all of you.
So here is summer bento #5! Do you know Sam Sam, le plus petit des grands héros? I posted about him here. I think he's more of a european children's figure. And maybe here too in Québec. Keira loves Sam Sam and for her lunch today, I decided to make her ham sammie in the form of Sam Nounours, the teddy bear who is one of Sam Sam's sidekick! I used mortadella as the eyebrows, eyes and mouth and marble cheddar cheese for the mouth and eye form. I really have super basic cookie cutter forms and nothing else so.. I made do with a melon scooper to create the bear ears. I put everything in Keira's Hello Kitty bento box and paired Sam Nounours with a butterfly in the top tray. To continue my quest for Keira to eat more fruits and veggies, the bottom tray held flower apples and red grapes. She also got pureed apple sauce with this mix. Et voilà! Lunch est prêt.
