Three Little Piggies Bento

I love making pigs bentos because they’re simple and easy to make which gives me time to focus on the little details. I colored the rice using beetroots and used tofu dogs for the noses and ears. I didn’t eat the tofu dogs and never will, although I love normal tofu, but these smelled and looked like real hotdog, real meat!! If you like hotdogs, but have high cholesterol, tofu dogs have zero cholesterol!! Just one down side is that I can’t use them for making a hotdog flower as it doesn’t open up like the real hotdogs do when you boil them! Oh and that on the top right is not a checkered apple its peach, so much easier to cut than apples. I used a special knife this time I Just got from Daiso, it really helped!!

I woke up 4am this morning to make the bentos!!

Good night!  -_-

    Very nice pink color on the rice. Checkered peach? What a cool idea! And don’t have to worry about the fruit turning brown since it’s already yellow. Are these the Lunchbots? Your kids have increased their appetites; they must be growing so big now!

    Thank you so much Jenn and Sheri you are so sweet!! 😀

    Sheri Yes they are Lunchbots, now I only use Luncbots they’re great and safer than plastic I think! Well my kids are still picky when it comes to veggies but I still try to put new food in their boxes hoping that they eat them when they’re super hungry at school, and I’m not there with them so they can’t complain hehehe!
