Hello and Good morning everyone! As my son and I sat in my office this morning waiting for the bus to pull up he asked me repeatedly to google star wars gourds. He just knows that somewhere out there is a gourd painted like Darth Vader or the Emperor. Since we had time I typed it in and we sat and looked. Nope, no star wars gourds. After I told him that he insisted that I should paint him a star wars gourd. Hmmm we will see.
Anyhow after the bus came and things were quiet I sat here trying to wake up and energize over a cup of coffee this morning - so much to do, so little time. like always with moms. I will admit I like to type in ideas into google and see what images pop up or where it takes me. I know, kinda scary in the world of Internet and I do have to be careful. Hint: don't click on the link "wanna see my gourds" and its a naked woman holding gourds over her private areas" not that I did, I'm just warning you that it didn't look good.
Well as I did I came across a website that I wanted to share. Its From a site called Anna the red. It has the coolest bento gallery! I didn't even know what a bento was when my kids were little. I wish I did - some of these are sooooo cute. And now, I'm afraid if I made some of these for my teenagers, well lets just say my moment is lost. I thought I would share a few photos....
These bentos are created to help get kids to eat healthy food and have fun. I never thought about going to all this work. It makes me regret the "eat this because I said so tactic I used"
Look how cute this is? I dont know that I have the time or energy to come up with and prepare something like this.
This one is just adorable. I plan on scrap booking this so that when Im older and senility kicks in Ill look through my scrapbooks to remember and see that oh yes I did this every day for my daughter when she was little. Good times, good times.
This last one is probably the one I most would have tried (if I had known about bentos) way back then. Its cute and looks nutricious if not alittle more work than normal. I dont really remember garnishing many of my kids lunches. Oh the shame of it!
Anyhow, go check it out for fun - they have a ton of cute bentos that look just to pretty to eat!
