Pi day: Supernatural Pie "Love me some pie"

It's March 14th or 3.14 or Pi day or Pie day!

Who loves him some pie more than Dean Winchester from Supernatural so I made a protection symbol pie.

Here is is before I cooked it.

Supernatural pi day love me some pie Dean Winchester Lunch


It's an Apple pie, I was worried it would get stuck in this bowl so I foolishly decided to move it. It didn't survive the transfer well, oops!

I also made a burger because you all know how much Dean likes his burgers. This is a beef and mushroom burger with Trader Joes 21 seasoning salute and cheese. Absolutely no leviathan food additives.

Princess Mononoke Bento

I have been a bit lax in posting the lunches I make recently don't worry my kids are eating I just haven't been taking photos!

I thought I would go back to what got me into bento in the first place a Studio Ghibli movie.

So here is a Princess Mononoke Bento.

Princess Mononoke Bento


Her mask is made from half a large tomato with cheese and Nori decorations. The Fur part is made from Tortilla and under that is a sandwich.

In the other part is Brocoli for the trees, brown beech mushrooms and carrot flowers and you may spot a couple of Kodama in the forest.

The other bowl has soup (this bento box isn't leak proof but you can send a small flask and pour into the bowl that is the lid.)

The bento box is from bentousa.com and comes in penguin, panda and owl designs.

If you haven't seen this movie. What are you waiting for it is wonderful historical fantasy tale.
