Bento (31) - Dominoes!

Believe it or not - these bentos are essentially leftover Dominoes Pizza (surrounded by peas) and their trademark Chicken Kickers. The fruit is kiwi, and the brightly colored plastic things are sauce containers holding ranch and/or hot-sauce for the Kickers. The boys' bentos turned out so well that I decided I wanted to stick with a square format (versus my two oval two-tier boxes) - so I built mine in a square tupperware container.

It took me roughly 10 minutes per box . . . A NEW RECORD!!! I sacrificied a little pizza space to make room for potato salad - which was well worth the sacrifice. However, I think I actually managed to over-cutify my lunch. I had to stare at it for about 3 minutes before I could bear to eat it. And that little penguin stared right back! KAWAII!!


  1. Totally cute! Good idea about using leftovers in bento. I do that all the time!

  2. Looks yummy! My leftovers next look that good.

  3. @arkonite_babe - the problem with using leftovers is, it implies you actually cooked dinner. Sadly, with my morning bento fixation, I've been TERRIBLE about evening meals. But you're right - using leftovers is a huge timesaver. I need to get back in the habit of cooking - and cooking extra!
