clucky little bento lunch

Cute little lunch for my girl. :)

cluck cluck bento

- turkey sandwich
- cheesey chicken decoration
- fruit section: strawberry, pitted cherries on a chicken pick, cantaloupe
- cucumber slices
- pretzel sticks

The cheesey chicken was fun and simple to make. :)

I used a bird shaped mini cookie cutter and some itty bitty mini cutters for the beak and feet detail. The crown is from a tiny star cutter. The eyes were made using a teeny straw - actually, a stir stick, like you find for stirring coffee.

I LOVE THE CHEESY CHICKEN!! And thank you for showing the kit that has the stuff to do it! I often see some of the things people do with their bentos and wonder what combination of cutters they had to have to do it. I'm just getting started and LOVE you blog because you include things like that!

I noticed that their prices were $.20-$1 more per item (for the same item, on the ones I looked at) than Jlist. Is the shipping difference good enough to make it worthwhile? Not waiting 2 months seems good, but I'm willing to wait 2 months to save $10-20 in price differences on my order!

I've ordered from them, and they are WONDERFUL! I have this set, actually. Very cute chick!

Thanks so much for sharing the bento supply shop info!!

But maybe with the 5% off... plus I don't mind supplying you with prizes for us readers! I'm just afraid I'll drop another $100 that I have to shamefully hide from my husband... While he's happy coming up with MTM ideas with me, he still rolls his eyes at me when I make them!

This is so cute! I love the tiny little feet. I also love the way you separated the compartments in the bento box to suit this lunch. Nice!

Ludicrous Mama, it's hard to beat JList's prices. :) I'm a very satisfied JList shopper - but a lot of peeps have been asking for some other shop recommendations and so many others are WAY overpriced (like double JList prices, youch!). It seems stock and available items varies a lot, too. I've never seen this particular line of cutters before on JList. Maybe they have had them and I just missed them though, that's possible.

Melissa said... [Reply to comment]

Allison, they are just regular cherries that I pitted myself using a cherry pitter. This is the one I use:
