Day 262


Day 262 - Today's lunch is, from the top left, yogurt with apple dip, grapes, carrot sticks, string cheese with flowers, roasted chicken sandwich cut out with a cupcake Lunch Punch and topped with a tomato "cherry".

Lunch Punch sent me this set of cutters to try.  I had bought a set of Lunch Punch before but just didn't have good luck using them.  So I went to my Bento Blogging Friends and asked them how they got theirs to turn out so beautifully!  Here is what they said, first cut the crust off the bread, then cut the bread slices seperately (I also cut the lunch meat if that is what I'm using), assemble the sandwich then put the cutter back on to make the impressions.  I know it sounds like a lot of steps but it really is fast.

    1. I use food safe markers (or you could use food coloring and a q-tip) on clean never used rubber stamps.
