Starry Bento

d loves pancakes for lunch and i had some new silicon cooking rings i bought at the dollar store i wanted to try out, so i made these tonight.  then i visited Adventures in Bentomaking and realized that Pikko did pancakes today too, only hers were much more creative than mine, plus she has a nifty syrup bottle :)   the silicon rings worked great for the pancakes, but were a little trickier for the eggs.  it’s hard to see the eggs in the picture, they are below the syrup cup.  i told d that if his friends make fun of his silly lunches i won’t make his so cute next time but he said they’re jealous he gets better food than the school lunches they are eating.  i think they turned out pretty well, and i had some good ideas for next time we do breakfast for lunch too.

on the menu:

  • 4 small (4″) star whole wheat pancakes
  • 1 star shaped jumbo egg, scrambled
  • 3 large strawberries, sliced
  • 2 sausage links, cut in half
  • 1 cookie, cut in half
  • 3 sour cherry balls
  • pancake topping: syrup cup for d, applesauce cup for me
