I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

Lunch in a Flash!

So, apparently I'm not quite in "school mode" yet because I completely forgot to pack the girls lunches for today until the very last minute!  Ack!!  So, for those of you that feel like you don't have the time for cute lunches...this lunch is for you.   It took minutes to make!

  • 2 flower-shaped sandwiches (stacked).   I used a small circle cutter to cut cheddar cheese for the flower's center.
  • Red and green grapes with daisy and lady bug picks
  • Carrots with ranch
  • Pretzel/goldfish crackers
  • 2 Hershey Kisses
In addition to the product links listed above, here are some items, or similar items, I used when creating this lunch:

  1. It looks pretty, yummy and healthy, I love it!:)

  2. Thanks for posting this! I totally have forgotten to pack lunches and had to scramble last minute to get them together! I love that you are showing that it can be done quickly and still look great!

  3. Still amazing even when rushing!

  4. Gorgeous lunch!! Those are my favorite picks! Thank you for linking to 15 Minute Fridays!

  5. Your lunches are so inspiring! I used to make bento all the time for myself for work, but since losing my job I've really missed making them. Your blog is making me want to do some anyway just for fun lunches at home!

    May I ask what age the children are that you make bento for?

    I have a 3 1/2 year old stepson I'd like to start making them for at the weekend, and I'm still working out the right sizes and quantities for a toddler.
