Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I realized when I looked at the photos from the SD card that there really is no protein in today's bento to speak of...  Oh well, C'est La Vie!

I decided to give the macaroni salad a little extra kick for Cinco de Mayo and added some chipotle seasoning to it.  I thought it tasted pretty good :)

His salad is a little plain today as I just wanted to get it finished and go to bed last night - so lazy of me...  Making the macaroni salad was enough for me :P  So, I just cut some grape tomatoes in half and arranged them in flowers and added a couple carrot flowers.

In the other tier is sliced strawberries and the chipotle macaroni salad w/ carrot and green onion flowers w/ black sesame seeds for the ground.
He also has his gummies in the lid and I threw a bag of raspberry shortbread cookies into his lunch bag just in case he was still hungry :)

I plan to definitely post the 50-followers contest either tomorrow or Friday, so stay tuned! :)


  1. Thee tomatoes make that flower look cute! Glad to know now of a way to have a healthy low cal salad that still looks cute! Thanks!

  2. Where did Kat get her Jack Skellington Bento Box?

  3. This bento looks so delicious and not overpowering. Very nice.

  4. The Jack Skellington Bento set came from ebay - I got it for her as a gift a while back.
