That William Sonoma has an entire kids section their website where they feature rocket shaped spatulas, princess cookie cutters .. and pans like this??:
That ‘cakelet’ pan is seriously too cute! Look for the wsKids link at the top of WilliamSonoma.com.
Anyways to those I haven’t shared this with .. my new internet obsession is Bento sites. Bento, from my limited understanding, is creating beautiful meals in little tiny ‘bento’ boxes. I believe its a Japanese thing, but its super cute, and can be really pretty.
Some bento sites I’ve visited:
You get the point, each of those blogs has links to other bento blogs .. I could serious look at the cute little box meals for hours while gobbling down giant plates of food Just kidding.
But I think these would be a great tool for controlling portion size, getting the right nutrition and getting your kids to eat healthy things by making them cute .. I mean look what these ‘bento’ women can do with rice balls & hard boiled eggs:
The shapes were made with ice cream sandwich molds you can find on amazon, that little piggy was dyed pink with food coloring. Its just amazing. [here's the whole article]
To learn more about bento check out the wikipedia page or any of the links up above and if this actually inspires you to create your meals in boxes, I demand pictures!
