Yet Another "Peanut" Bento for Ben

Mr. Ben still likes elephants, so we opted for a quick "Peanut" themed snack bento for him. For new readers, Ben's elephant obsession is well-documented (check here, here & here for samples or just type "Peanut" in the search box for a plethora of elephant themed posts). Since I had a ton of fresh muffins that have been snacked on all morning, we just opted for a sandwich & fruit bento.



Ben has a roast beef, ham & cheese sandwich on Nature's Own Honey Wheat bread (I like the mini circle sandwiches). It's topped with a cheese Peanut, with a sugar eye and a different colored cheese ear. He has cantaloupe, a Peanut skewer of blueberries and a couple of grapes topped with Peanuts.

The perfect lunch for my Peanut-loving boy. :o)

  2. They are Wilton brand square muffin cups. I find they fit so much better in boxes than the round ones. :o)

  3. You're right about that. I think those sugared eyes look really cute on your cheese critters. They just bring them to life. I think it's cute that he loves elephants so much.

  9. Thanks all!

    @Janae, the picks are from two different packs that friends brought me back from the Japanese $1 stores in California. I think maybe Ebay? Or the link on the right that says "From Japan with Love" carries all sorts of cute things.

    @Kristi, they are from a little candy store near my mom's house, but Amazon has them!
