Miss Jackie, you really are a SuperWoman....

Who knows how many hours you put in last week and you still manage to pull off works of art for the little man's lunch.!

Teesha you are such a darling. But, my friend, you would only know all the hours I put in last week if you TOO were putting in those long hours! I have to admit, I was a little bleary-eyed making these things. But it's fun, right?! And boy did last week make me appreciate this weekend! No work, just play. And I'm taking nothing for granted.
: )
Hope you and your guys are enjoying it as well. Thanks for the nice note.

Jackie, do you remember where you got those handy little silicon muffin cups I saw in an earlier post? I have a picky eater (2 yrs. old) and want to jazz up her meals with a little bento magic!

Lisa, yes, I got our at one of those big-box grocery stores [Great Canadian Superstore] in the baking/kitchen area. They were pretty inexpensive, I think just $5 or $7 and we got a whole whack of them.

I've also seen them at Daiso, the magic dollar store that I've gushed about in previous posts ... those end up costing about $1 each.

How exciting that you are getting into the bento too! Let us know how it goes.

Happy Bento-ing!
