I did what all new bloggers do. I checked out her profile and visited her blog. I was captivated by her photos. They were of food. Pretty food. Children's food. Food that may not get thrown out. Little animals, that my boys would thoroughly enjoy eating the heads off first and then the arms. Food that won't get wasted. Now this my kind of food. Do you know the average American family throws out 20% of their food? I was told that by my 12 year-old, but I believe it.
First of all, that is the cutest blog name. I have blogger envy at these hip bloggers who create great names for their blog. Accidentally Homeschooling is fine for now, but how about when my life moves on. Accidentally Menopausal or how about Accidentally Working a Real Job? By then those cool names will be taken. I'm on a tangent again.
What did I learn from Crouching Mother?
She makes these fabulous lunches called Bento. Bento is a single serving meal that originated in Japan. She creates them for her daughter. If you want to know more about them click here. After I spent a little time admiring the adorable food, I decided I must try my hand at this. In order to get started, I need to win this kit from this blog. Bentobloggy is giving away a start up kit, which will help a rookie like myself, create an appealing lunch that every child will be drooling for.
You can find more Bentos here. Look for some upcoming blogs about bento. I can see myself now. I know it's 2:00 and you are hungry, but I am just finishing up your cheese shaped like R2D2. Oh, my mind is swirling. How about you, have you ever created one of these cute lunches or bought one?
Have a great weekend and don't forget the point of this blog. Enter this fun give-away and if you win, send it to me.
