Yay! Summer is in full swing. I haven't been posting as many bentos because school is out, but in about seven weeks we start up again. Summer always flies by! My Bento Blogging Friends and I are having a Patriotic Blog Hop to celebrate Independence Day.
My 9 year old daughter is all about peace signs. I had the glasses and went with the theme. I made a peace sign sandwich, apples, and blue Jell-O. I also added red, white, and blue sprinkles. Sometimes it is just that simple. :)
Okay, while I was making Jell-O I thought, hey I've seen all these cool orange Jell-O wedges floating around Pinterest lately so why not try it. Turns out it is a little trickier than it looks.
So, I scraped out an orange...
...filled it with Jell-O and then put it in the fridge. In the mean time Jell-O leaked out somehow. My oranges were not exactly full when it was time to take them out.
Slicing them was a whole other dilemma. I could not get the cute wedge.
Oh well, I tried (but won't be again). Luckily they tasted great and my kids didn't mind at all they they were not Pinterest worthy :)
nom nom nom.
Up next on the Blog Hop is my friend Jenn at Bento For Kidlet.
