Lego Bento: a loving lunch for my hubby

With our Lego shaped bento box, I planned to make fun bento lunches for my hubby to encourage myself to make his lunch everyday. Also, so he would have something cute and funny to show off to the other teachers at school (work). While working at a theme park (this is where it becomes very apparent where I worked), I could not resist buying this awesome Lego brick bento box while shopping after my shift. Hubby and I have been married for over a month now and he finally gets his first bento lunch! He loved his lunch and felt very loved by me ^_^

Lego Bento Lunch

What’s inside this lunch:

“Smiling” peanut butter and jelly sandwich:

olive “eyes” held by toothpicks and American cheese “smile”

Brick shaped hard boiled egg

Rosettes: turkey lunch meat and lettuce

a hotdog, chopped apples, cereal (inside the red brick divider box)

I used some resources from various blogs online to achieve this cute lunch:

1: http://eatsamazing.co.uk/lunches/lego-lunchbox-review

I used this article to inspire my lunch. I also used Grace’s tutorial to mold my hard boiled egg. I never knew that one could mold hard boiled eggs before I found Grace’s articles! That white square in my lunch is in fact a brick shaped egg although the lighting is too poor to show.

2. There is cereal in that cute brick box.

3. I copied my meat rosettes from this picture: Meat Flowers. After much searching on Pinterest and Google, I was not able to find a link to the original post. I believe the original post belongs on this website: http://ameblo.jp/pinknoohanachan/.

      You are welcome; I always like to cite my sources and you have great resources. And thank you. He loved his lunch so much! He gets a lot of attention when he takes his Lego lunch to school. The kids love it and the other teachers want to know where he got the box. I tell him his lunch has “my wife loves me” written all over it.
