Pizza Bunny Bento

In case I haven't mentioned it, I really hate wasting food. Bentos are kind of a perfect way to use out leftover bits & pieces of other meals, so a lot of times, I'm using dinner leftovers to make other items.

That said, we had a few slices of mini pizzas leftover. While mini pizzas are ideal lunch food, they aren't exactly visually thrilling. I had to fix that.

Pizza Bunny Paperchase Alien Bento Box

Mr. Ben has his mini pizza slices, but topped with a cheddar bunny! The bunny is much cuter than the plain pizza and has a white cheddar nose and sugar eyes. He's surrounded by a number of sliced grapes and a mini muffin that I think is chocolate chip. The side containers hold watermelon (from my garden), carrot & celery sticks and a few more sliced grapes. The slices make the grapes look a little more plentiful--at my count, there are only 9 whole grapes in the box.

  8. what a cute bunny and I agree, I'm into the cheese critter thing myself. I did bunnies too today because I didnt have the time to shape a sandwich and go all out. Besides, the cheese characters are just as cute! I'm curious, what bento box do you use? I'm looking to buy one with compartments but aside from the green leaf tight one, I can't find any! At least in pink or other girly color.

  9. Stopped by from SITS! I love making Bento lunches for my kids. The Bento supplies are pretty low on the ground around here though. Love your Pizza Bunny!
