Yoda Pop Bento

Happy Summer Everyone!

We're actually in California right now, enjoying a bit of vacation now that school is out in Colorado. We took the kids to LA since they have never been to Disneyland, then we'll hit the beach, maybe San Diego and SeaWorld, and my awesome husband drove me all over LA to do some bento shopping on Wednesday.

I did save a few bentos from school to blog while we were gone, since I hate just not posting for a week (and figured you all didn't want to see vacation pictures).


In this bento, Ben had a turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat rounds, accented with a Yoda pop.  We made the Yoda pops for Star Wars Day, so saved a picture to blog in the future.  Yoda is actually made from my favorite sugar cookie dough (I'll post that when we get home, forgot to bring the recipe with me), colored with a bit of green food coloring.  I thought he turned out pretty awesome.  To the right, Ben has carrots, pretzels, blackberries and strawberries ... and a fork to eat them with.  It's all packed in our Easy Lunchboxes, the only one the Yoda pop fits into.
