Lady Bug Sandwich #84

Sean asked me for a bento today, so I made him this super simple one for his lunch. It’s a lady bug sandwich with ham, cheddar, and lettuce.  I filled the box in with red seedless grapes and mandarin oranges.  Sean was super happy to see his bento and asked if he could eat it already at 9 this morning, but I told him he had to wait for lunch. :)

For those of you who bought my new cookbook, there is an error in one of the recipes that unfortunately was edited in.  It is the Slow Cooker Roast Beef recipe and if you skim down to the end of the recipe it reads “To make the gravy, mix the fat with the cornstarch and water mixture and sugar.”  It should read  “To make the gravy, mix the sauce with the cornstarch and water mixture and sugar.”.  My apologies for that egregious error and it will be rectified in the next printing. :(

  1. So cute! Will definitely have to check out Executive Chef. Don’t worry, hopefully most people wouldn’t want to make gravy with fat and will not be confused!

  2. This is so cute. Then he can just slip the cheese on the sandwich. How many of those big cookie cutters did you get? I wonder how much Ward Warehouse has changed since I’ve been there? Is the Old Spaghetti Factory still there? Sorry for all the questions!!! How nice that he wanted to eat is at 9:00am!

    • Thanks Lyndsey! :D I got the lady bug cookie cutter and they also had this pretty dove cutter that I picked up as well. LOL, the Old Spaghetti Factory is still there and Ward has expanded quite a bit. Tons of new shops, restaurant, and a theater. How long has it been since you were last here?

  3. Cute ladybug! I would want it for my breakfast too! :D

  4. Hi Susan, what a coincidence! My son’s name is also Sean and I made a ladybug sandwich on the same day as you did.

    Obviously, Mark was asleep on the job! Regardless, your recipes are AWESOME and so kid-friendly!!! I love the ladybug sandwich too! You are too creative!

  7. The ladybug looks lovely! A friend of mine has been saying that the only food her child likes in a bento is shaped sandwiches. I’ll send her this link.

  8. Oh Susan this is adorable, my kids would want this for breakfast too! By the way Sorry for the long pause…I am due any day now but missing your lovely bentos. Had to check in and see what you’ve been creating and as always it fantastic!
