A Mixed-up Bento!

Had I actually planned better, I would have done this for April Fool's Day, because we've got spaghetti & meatball cupcakes and cheeseburger cookies today.

For those new to the blog, spaghetti and meatball cupcakes are an entree, mini spaghetti pies topped with sauce and a meatball "cherry". Cheeseburger cookies are a favorite of F&B's and an assembly only cookie with Nilla wafers, Keebler Grasshoppers, coconut dyed green for lettuce and icing dyed orange for cheese. The kids and their friend made a big batch of cookies on Saturday and took some to a few of the neighbors.

This would be Ben's box (Faith hates blackberries). He has two of the spaghetti and meatball cupcakes, two of the cheeseburger cookies, strawberries, blackberries, a cutie orange, and a few veggie straws. Faith's was almost the same, but no blackberries and she wanted carrots instead of the cutie.

If you have a moment, check out our new sponsor Otacute as well! They are currently stocking bento boxes and all sorts of other bento supplies!
