You thought I forgot about bento…

It’s true, I’ve been lazy with blogging, but I’m still making Bento.  However, I will admit that I am a failure as a bento maker because I didn’t do a Halloween themed one for my daughter.  This year October was hectic, and it came on fast and sudden.  We didn’t even do our traditional pumpkin … Continue reading
