The Little Lady and I came up with our Dr. Seuss bento, based on her favorite Dr. Seuss books: The Cat in the Hat, The Sneetches, and Green Eggs and Ham.
For the Star Bellied Sneetch — and The One “Without” behind it: two pieces of garlic toast, cut out with an oval cookie cutter. The star on the first on is a piece of colby cheese, adhered with cream cheese.
For the Green Eggs and Ham: a few ham rolls (previously dyed green thanks to a green apple juice bath (apple juice + green food dye)) and one hard boiled egg. I was originally going to leave the egg whole and give it a green dye bath . . . then we reread Green Eggs and Ham and realized I would need to change my game plan to create eggs that looked like those in the book. Soooooo . . . I just dyed the yolks. Twas messy, folks.
For The Cat’s Hat: simplest of them all — just a few apple sections with pieces of the peel removed.
This afternoon, we’re making Dr. Seuss cupcakes (which will be nothing more than REALLY colorful cupcakes) and red fish/blue fish fruit leathers. Hopefully . . . that is!
