Headed out the other day to run a few errands and my mom had to stop into the grocery store. While there, I discovered a really interesting product called "Mini Sliders". Apparently, they are supposed to be for mini-hamburgers, but they had all sorts of bento-ish possibilities so I had to have a pack. Even better, they had a short ingredient list and were HFCS-free (again, we're not completely HFCS free, but I try to limit it if possible.
The little breads are only about 2 inches in diameter and remind me of the sandwich rounds we are obsessed with at home, so cute!
apple-cinnamon granola bars that I had made for the car trip, and a boiled egg with a kitty face (not bad for not having my bento supplies on hand, isn't it?). On the other side of the box, she had a fruit salad--cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, blueberries, strawberries, green grapes, and raspberries. I think she could subsist on fruit salad.
A close-up of the mini slider sandwich! It's just darling, we love mini things around here. I actually had it on a saucer (not a regular plate) for this picture. It fit right where the base of the tea cup should be. As for the pick, I didn't bring decorative items with me, so Faith & I made a few of our own thanks to an idea from the Yum Yum Bento book I received. Review coming soon, it's amazing!!!
Since we are in Canada, I promised I'd try to use Canadian things to show that you can find bento goodies here--box is from the Dollarama and has Dora on the lid & a removable divider, the sliders are President's Choice brand (Canadian grocery), the pick we made with some scrapbook paper & stickers from the $1 store too!
