Back To School Bento Box From Bento & Co.

It's back to school time again!  It seems the summer just went by so quickly.  I don't know where the time went.  Well, the fun thing about school starting up again, is back to school shopping.  Last year my daughter lost her lunch box at school for about 3 months.  It eventually turned up, but her froggy ice pack and Paperchase Alice in Wonderland bento box were missing... hmmmm.  Mysterious.  So we had to shop for new ones.  Her favorite thing these days are cats, so it was great to find this cute pink flower and kitty ice pack set at Pottery Barn Kids.
Next on the list a new bento box.  We found this great website that has so many fun things for kids (and grown ups)!  Since "Kiki's Delivery Service" is one of my daughter's favorite movies, it was serendipitous when I found a bento box with the cat Jiji from that movie at Bento & Co.  Surprisingly  the bento box from Japan arrived must faster than the ice packs from Pottery Barn Kids.  In fact the ice packs never arrived.  I had to track them down and re-order them.  It was very annoying.  But we got it taken care of and they arrived just in time for my daughter's first lunch at school.  Whew.

To make her first lunch special, I tried my hand at a cute cat sandwich and happy face cheese and crackers.
