Cross-posted to [ profile] bentolunch:

Tyler attends a Manga fan club at our local library once per month. This month they hosted a bento contest. She was actually the only one to bring one, but we were both very pleased with the result of her very first bento:

There is a bed of basmati rice on the bottom. She made 2 apple rabbits, 3 Naruto rolls with just ham and velveeta (it is what we had on-hand), and two hard boiled eggs: 1 star and 1 teddy bear. The star represents something from a video game, though I don't remember which one. Then there is a ham Kirby with raisin and apple accents.

Today I waited for Tyler to wake before...

  • I cooked breakfast for my family.
  • I went grocery shopping with Elmo and Sasha.
  • I unloaded the dishwasher.
  • I cleaned the stovetop. We've only lived here a short time, so it wasn't bad. I'd like to keep it clean.
  • I baked peanut butter / chocolate kiss cookies with Tyler.
  • I did laundry.
  • I hung blankets over the sliding door.
  • I took down the Giftmas tree.
  • I cooked a quick easy dinner for the girls and I.
  • I played Monopoly Revolution with Tyler and Elmo.
  • I carved an apple with Tyler - Japanese style.
  • I cut up veggies in preparation of my bento lunches this week.
  • I boiled a few eggs and molded 2, Tyler made the other into a chick (also Japanese style).
  • I unpacked a box. It was in the back on the bottom, so I had to rearrange everything, too.
  • I put Sasha's toys away, but I do that every night before I go to bed.
  • I put together my Sunday Surf post for my blog... a little bit late.
  • I posted these goofy details on my LiveJournal.

I am really friggin' tired. I think I'll go crawl into bed now... G'nite!

Bento #2 - Tuesday:

Bento #3 - Wednesday:

Bento #4 - Thursday:

Bento #5 - Friday:

I had planned to make Bento #6 on Saturday morning, even though I work an earlier shift. However, after my poor sickly baby kept me up most of the night and was needy in the morning, bento fell on my list of priorities. I wound up asking Elmo to make PB&J for me for lunch.

I did enjoy sharing each of these bento lunches with Sasha, though! No more skull onigiri for a while, though they were fun.

I had decided that the week of Oct 26th (Tuesday - my Monday) I was going to make a Bento Lunch every day (starting with my first ever) as well as wear my hair in a different fashion each day. I had boiled eggs and practiced sandwich sushi. The thing about that week, though... I was working a completely different schedule (mornings!).

Bento #1

The next day I had to choose between bento or sex... the rare opportunity for sex won out.

The rest of the week I gave up. It was not a good week to start trying new things.

Wish List

It is getting to be that time of year. My husband has actually been nagging me to get my Wish List in order and get it posted. I will post one for him, Sasha, and Tyler, too, as usual.

  • 11 x 14 frames for my photography, 6+ frames
  • tattoo gift card - even though I got a tattoo since I last posted this.
  • Thermals are always a good idea! I really could use another set or two - large
  • Handheld GPS Unit for Geocache
  • cool zip-up hoodies (not solids)
  • classic high top chucks - black or something funky
  • a CD book for music, one of the bigger ones
  • Rack-O (game)
  • CDs:
  • DVDs:
  • Books:
  • Bento Stuff! I'm obsessed with Bento right now!
    • silicone baking cups - they don't need to be Wilton, I read they have 'em for $5 @ Target - they also don't need to be any special shapes, though fun shapes would be cool, too. Also, I don't want a full pan / tray, just individual cups
    • fondant cutters - the garden set is very cute, but the letters would also be really good to have for my Bento Lunches!
    • Shaped Vegetable Cutters
    • Bento Egg Molds - these are SOOOO cool! I must have some!
    • Bento baran (dividers) - I like the plain grass ones, but some of the others are cute, too. The fake lettuce is pretty cool.
    • Bento Food Picks would be fun to add
    • Bento Lunch Box - I can and am making do with regular plastic ware, but I would really love to have a more... Japanese version. The Hello Kitty ones are so cool, but I like the more sophisticated ones, too. Something stackable is very cool, but the ones with dividers are too. I just love them all so far! Eventually I'd like to start making little bento lunches for Sasha, too. So mini bento boxes are also under consideration.
    • bamboo mat for rolling sushi
