April Fools Bento

So Today is April Fools day, and Mother Nature has played a huge prank on us. There is SNOW outside. After all the snow melted and the weather got warmer, we had a Snow Storm! Ugh. Let's just hope this prank doesn't last long.
With that said, I forgot it was going to be April Fools Day until late yesterday. I didn't have much time to get anything together for today's bento, but I managed OK with what ingredients I had.
Surprise Sushi Bento
  • Leftovers from last night (Chicken, Green Beans, Peas, Carrots, Edamame, and Gravy)
  • Served over a Baked Potato (With some fresh spinach underneath)
  • Tiny little Strawberries
  • Grapes
  • WATERMELON (It's not really in season yet, but it was on sale at the store and I've been missing it so much lately)
  • Sushi Rolls (Coconut rice crispy treats with watermelon jelly bellies, orange gummy slice, and cherry gummy slice)
I did the best I could with what I had in the house, and let me tell you, they were delicious! I loved the shredded coconut I added in, It gave an extra depth of flavor.
I have the same things in my bento except no potato and less sushi.
Now here comes the other April Fools Surprise!!! This is the real prank I played on my fiance today.
Are you ready for it? 
Are you sure you are ready for it? 
Are you positive?
OK Here it is...

What could be inside this box? Let's open it to find out?
Well That can't be right. What if we open this box?
Now this is just getting silly. It feels like there is still something in here, what could it be?
OK, if there isn't something in this box I'm gonna be upset

Happy April Fools Day Everyone!


  1. I love the idea of rice krispie treat sushi!

  2. *Sniffle.* Tricked me...

  3. I want to try making the sushi again when I have better ingredients. They were so tasty, but I know I can make them look nicer then that. Maybe I'll do a blog on making them.

  4. Haha, I thought there would really be something inside the smallest box ;).

  5. Why are you SO cute?!


  6. It must be in my genes... or my jeans... depends on what you're looking at!
