Another Snow Day!

Last night I made pigs in a blanket and potato salad to make it easier in the morning to make bento. I had the whole thing packed up and looking really good if I do say so myself. Then my husband walked into the room very early and said "school is cancelled". Now I adore a good snow day, but my bento! Okay, I admit it, I love it when Pippy comes home and tells me her friends reactions to her lunches. I am weak.

So, today there are some pigs in a blanket that I made with the last of the mini dogs that I had to thaw for the octodogs yesterday and some crescent roll dough that hadn't expired but had been in the refrigerator for a while. Then I made a Japanese style potato salad with salted and drained English cucumbers, potato, sliced mini red bell pepper and Kewpie mayo.  Also in there are some blueberries and seaweed salad to fill it out with some grape tomatoes for color.


  1. I am right there with you, lol!! When you have a perfect bento and no school it's so disappointing! And I have to say that I enjoy A-chan's classmates' comments about her bentos too :D The pigs in a blanket are a great idea, I should try that!

  2. I am so glad that I am not the only one! LOL. If you make them with the premade cresent rolls, unroll them (mine came out in four rectangles) and pinch the seems so they don't fall apart. Then cut to suit your needs :)
