The Red Riding Hood bento box is the same as the Oz box pictured below except that the bottom basket is red.

I was recently contacted to be a part of the giveaway/review of CSN products. CSN has an incredible array of products, over 200 plus stores to choose from!

I will post the contest, which will include a $30 gift certificate, in just a few days so don’t forget to check back soon!
Now on to today’s bento! Bagel Thins are on the menu again, this time in the form of a piggy. The piggy is made from a Bagel Thin filled with cream cheese and fresh blueberries. His eyes are made from cheese and olives, snout from whole grain bread, and ears from cheddar cheese. The rest of the box is filled with grapes, sliced star fruit, strawberries, and blueberries.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Today’s bento is a bagel owl made from a Bagel Thin filled with cream cheese and sliced strawberries. I love these bagel thins because they are the perfect size for a sandwich box! For the owl’s eyes I used whole grain bread, Swiss cheese, and olives, and finished him with a strawberry for his beak. I filled the rest of the container with grapes, sliced star fruit, and more strawberries.
Stay tuned because within a week I will have a contest for a $30 gift certificate from CSNStores.com up for grabs! Just in time for some back-to-school shopping!
