Today's bento is one you've seen several times before, because it's a fun way to present fish: deconstructed fish tacos. The cod is pan fried in lemon pepper and served with a cabbage slaw tossed with red onion, tomato, and orange. Instead of the usual tortillas I cut little bunny shapes and layered them to make cute spiders. Yes, I know they look as though they only have 4 legs each. That's because you didn't notice the other 4 legs located precisely behind the 4 which are visible. Trust me, they're there. The last compartment holds a handful of grapes and some sliced strawberries. The LunchBot Trio is ideal for this lunch because there aren't any saucy or gravy parts to worry about. I love it!

I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
