Willow's Lunch

Willow had barbecue meatballs today … or a barbecue meatball (it was humongous) with white rice, corn, carrots and some red grapes, halved. I made her a scarecrow on her rice but she, rather unimpressed, just said, ‘mommy where are the birds?’ I told her I wanted to put little black crows but there wasn’t enough room. 


Looking at it, I wish I had made his clothes out of something besides sandwich meat (he looks kinda naked to me) but I was having trouble finding something to show up on the white rice. Next time, color the rice! *nods*

To make the scarecrow, I used the people cut-outs that Wilton sent me and they are great. And not just for fondant or cookies! I am excited at the thought of all the bentos and cakes I can make with them. They have a really cute cake on their website that has little children all around it which I would just love to make for something in the future. I’m sure I can come up with some excuse!

You can buy these cut outs on the Wilton web site also or you can win them in my giveaway along with lots of other Wilton goodies here. Giveaway ends on Friday so get your name in quick! If you don’t have a blog account you can just leave your email with your answer.

I entered this bento (again, a bit late in the day) in What's For Lunch Wednesday

Save those baby food containers!! Even the taller glass jar ones work great!!

A lot of people call me green and I guess I am but it's more because I am just cheap and want to reuse stuff. lol

This is too cute.

What will she do when she goes to college? Sorry. Sorry. I know that is years away, but you may need to start planning to be a dorm mom, so all the girls can get these cool lunches.

Kelly Polizzi said...
