More sammies :o

I still haven't gone grocery shopping, so I packed the cute min sammies again and this time tried dipping the press side in hot sauce first - They aren't perfect, but I like the addition of a little color :)

We bought Kat a used car today, so I *still* haven't gone grocery shopping, which means if I pack Rob a bento for tomorrow, it'll be tuna sandwiches again and the last of the macaroni salad & not sure about fruit... 
At least I get a break from the reg salad! ;) lol

I started by adding the macaroni salad to the cup in the top tier.  I opted to leave it undecorated this time - can you see the purple? :)
I then added the clementine segments and cut up the red pepper and the pea pods and put them in.

Next I made the sammies, cutting out the shapes then dipping the press part in the hot sauce and pressing it onto one piece for each sandwich.  I'm completely out of lettuce, so I used a baran food divider behind the sammies and some dill for a little more color.

I then opened a Little Debbie heart shaped brownie, put it in a Valentines cupcake cup and wedged it in at the other end, filling in w/ the grape tomatoes, chex mix and some nuts.

Voila - A better bento than I expected when I started to search for stuff to put into it :)
He also has an apple and a Kiwi gummy in the lid and a side cup of lite Hidden Valley Ranch dressing to dip the veggies.

And in case you're curious, here's Kat's 'new' 2000 VW Cabriolet:

Not bad for her first car IMHO :)

Happy Bento-ing!

(If you missed it, yesterday's post included a tutorial on my ladybug tomatoes)


  1. I've always had a crush on these cars :) They are so cute and fun. I hope she enjoys it!

  2. I love the idea of dipping the sandwich cutter in hot sauce, they look adorable!

  3. Isn't it a great first car? I wish my first car had been as nice :)

    Thanks Jenn - I do have a love for the hot sauce :D
