Checking Out the "Competition" - Bento-logy

Caren from Bento-logy makes bento meals for her two children, H and A. Her blog name makes me think of the song Technologic by Daft Punk. "Cut it. Cute it.  Shape it. Smoosh it. Pick it. Poke it. Bend it. Box it. Bento-lo-gy. Bento-lo-gy."

Unlike me, she did about a zillion super cute holiday-themed bentos. It was hard to pick just one! But... Squeee! I totally wish I had thought of this Gingerbread House bento!

And who can resist an Angry Birds bento? Even though it makes me want to give up, since I'll never bother to put this much effort into anything be this good!

Little Z loves the game "Cut the Rope" app/game on our iPhones (although she calls it "feed the frog candy game.") So while I am filled with vile jealousy at Caren's free-hand cheese-cutting skills, I couldn't resist this little Cut the Rope cutie! I especially love the blueberry tucked into the raspberry! It helps distract me from my conflicting feelings over this bento (bitterness that it's so much better than anything I could do, and awe at its adorableness!)

Although this Autumn Leaves one is more my speed, skill- and effort-wise, lately! It's nice to know that she's still human too! :) And I love the layout! I don't use a lot of the little bento boxes for this very reason, since it takes a lot of planning and effort to get everything to fit!

Check out all of Caren's really cute and creative bento meals at Bento-logy or find her on Facebook!

  1. Aw! So cute and creative! I especially love the angry birds one. :)


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
