Down on the Farm Bento

I only made one bento lunch all last week, but I was very pleased with how it turned out. This was my first time trying this technique for making a hard cooked egg look like a hatching chick. The eyes are brown mustard seeds, which stuck to the egg yolk with just a tiny drop of water, and the beak is a bit of carrot.

The chick would be great for a Springtime or Easter breakfast or lunch, but I used it to make a farm themed lunch, with a pepperoni pig.

How kawaii! (かわいい cute) Hopefully Jasmine will grow out of her egg allergy soon.

I love the new look of your blog, very crisp looking.

Oh, is Blaze still tracing words? I found a font that you can use that has dashes so you can trace out the letters, you can find it here, http://www.fontspace.com/kids-fonts/trace

and it is free. :D

We've been using a program call Hand Writing Without Tears, because it's what his occupational therapist recommended. I'll go look at that site, though, because I am still having him do a page of handwriting every day.

I really think you should publish some sort of book with all of these bento lunch ideas. Yours are always so cute!

Sandra said...

With the font you could type up a page story and just have him trace it. It doesn't do anything special, just lets you type the words/letters that you would want Blaze to write.

I saw this in the newspaper this morning and thought you might be interested on showing it to Blaze. It isn't out yet, but when it is....
