May Flowers!

My fiance was having leftovers for lunch, and it was a bit more then I could fit into a bento, so I only made one bento today. I have been trying to use up the rest of the taco meat from Cinco De Mayo. It's surprising how sometimes we hardly have any leftovers and other times we have way too much but I always make the same amount to begin with.

Anyway, I used my flower cookie cutter and my new leaf and flower stem picks to dress up this bento. It's been really pretty out with all the flowers and the gorgeous weather, and Yesterday was Mother's Day, another holiday where there are a ton of flowers everywhere. So I decided to make my bento flowery too.
  • Flower Shaped Cucumber
  • Flower Shaped Babybel cheese on a flower stem pick.
  • Cherry Tomatoes on a double leaf pick
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Chopped red Onion
  • Turkey and Black Bean taco meat
  • Cutie Mandarin Orange with a leaf  pick
  • Whole Wheat Pita bread
  • Baby Carrots
  • 100 Calorie pack Wholly Guacamole
  • Cucumber Flower on stem pick
I love my new bento accessories soooo much!!!! And I love those little cutie mandarin oranges. I am glad my fiance doesn't eat citrus fruit because now there are more for me!


  1. Your...bentos are very cute, Kat. I look forward to trying one sometime.

  2. Thank you Drake. I look forward to making one for you. Hopefully I will be able to soon.
