Junkyard Dogs Bento

I wanted a simple lunch... so I was just going to have the last banana and some peanut butter, then I was wondering what to eat it with, when I thought I should have it with a rice cake... and as I was pulling the rice cakes out of the cabinet I saw that my skull bento box was the perfect size/shape for the rice cakes, so I pulled that out. The skull made me think I should use my bone picks, so I pulled out my bento accessories and started rooting through my picks only to spot my dog picks, and then This bento was born!
 Here are the Puppy Dogs in The Junk Yard. I'm using my imagination to say the banana's are a pile of tires, and the applesauce is dirt, etc.
 Here it is all Packed Up. Isn't the puppy cute? The Dog Face is made of:
  • Puppy Face: Rice Cake (Plain, no salt)
  • Ears: Corn Tortilla heart, turned upside down and cut in half
  • Nose/Mouth: Corn Tortilla with Black Food Coloring
  • Eyes: Blue Food Coloring

 And here is the junkyard with the dogs and a lot of the bones they buried sticking out of the ground.
  • 1 sm Banana (Cut into large slices)
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 bag 100 Calorie Almonds
  • 1.25 Tbsp Teddie Chunky Peanut Butter w/Flaxseed
  • 1 Sunsweet Ones Prune
I love how well the food cups fit into this bento box. I think I'll do something like this again. :)
