I made this bento to say thank you to Cindy Jane at www.forevertulip.com for doing such an incredible job on my website.  This is WAY over due but life gets away from you sometimes.  What can I say about a woman I never met?  We only communicated via email but I feel like she’s an old friend because she worked really hard for quite some time on this site.  She has a great sense of humor, patience of a saint, is an insomniac and is truly an artist.  She figured out what I wanted when I couldn’t and never once told me to go take a flying leap.  She does the most beautiful work and I don’t even think she realizes how talented she is.  I love my site and so do my kids even the baby loves to look at her little avatar of herself and say “Gracie”.  I wish I could meet Cindy Jane in person but for now it will have to be a simple bento that my kids will gobble up in a second. If anyone out there wants excellent affordable website work I highly recommend you contact Cindy Jane at www.forevertulip.com.

I can’t believe this is the last of my Halloween bentos.  I  sure had a lot of fun.  I made the super cute skeleton & bones sandwiches with a new cookie cutter set that I bought from Williams Sonoma and the brain mold was from an old gummy candy tray that I kept to use as a mold for chocolate or to freeze yogurt.

Halloween Zevia Party Punch 29 Oct

This time of year there will be lots of kids parties coming up at school, church, friends & family so I decided to do a post on an awesome healthy recipe I came up with.  When I went to the Moms Meet Summit in Philadelphia Pa. earlier this month the great people at Zevia All Natural Zero Calorie Soda Co. gave me a coupon for a free six pack of any soda of my choice.   I decided to get the Zevia Ginger Ale and make an all natural party punch.  I used a plastic brain mold that I poured Fruit Punch flavored Juicy Juice from a 46oz. bottle and froze overnight, then I added four cans Ginger Ale flavored Zevia,  3/4th of a 46oz can of 100% Pineapple Juice, the rest of the bottle of Juicy Juice & two to three pints of all natural Mango flavored Hola Fruta sherbet. I stirred the punch until the sherbet was melted then I dipped the bottom of the brain mold in a bowl of warm water for 30 seconds to help release it, flipped it over onto a ladle and gently slid it into the punch bowl. As you can see from the pictures the kids LOVED IT!!!!  The only bad thing was my four year old kept going and getting more and was telling me it’s ok because it’s healthy.

I took a break from the Halloween bentos to make  sure I made a pink ribbon bento to celebrate Susan G. Komen’s birthday which is on the same day as Halloween.  I spoke to my eldest daughter about breast cancer and how the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization has raised the most money for research to date.  My daughter was very moved about her story and loves how her sister Nancy Brinker has carried on her legacy.
