Something Fishy for Mr. Ben

You didn't think I'd make something as cute as a tea party for Faith & leave out Ben, did you?

Ben wasn't quite interested in a tea party, so he had something just a little bit fishy.



The actual contents aren't excessively different from Faith's, more the design. To the left, Ben had a turkey/ham/cheese fish shaped sandwich. It's topped with a cheese fish in the exact same shape to cover the top bread, and decorated with a sugar eye and a few cheese spots of a different color. He has banana-zucchini bread (cut into triangles to fit the spot) and a few blackberries to hold the fish in place. To the right, he has honeydew & cantaloupe, then carrot & celery sticks with a bit of dip in the yellow container. I'm really liking Mr. Fish there!

Did you enter our Lunch Punch giveaway yet? You should, it's open until Sunday evening!

ETA: I thought I said this in the post originally, but I think I only wrote it in my head. This is another of my "Inspired by Susan & Hawaii Bento Box Cookbook" creations! I absolutely love the ideas in this book!

  7. I don't yet have bento products but am really interested. Would food stay cold enough for my kids to take them to lunch? and the sets you show here? how do I buy it all, with dividers?

  8. Such a great design! I love the 'bubbles' suggestion with the lighter colored cheese dots. That's so cool, Shannon!
