Giddy Up Horsey!

When I was looking at my barren refrigerator today, I knew I was going to struggle with lunch.  I had some fish fillets on hand, so I pulled them out, along with the few produce items I had left.  

As I laid the fish out to cook it, I saw a horse in my mind and went with it!  I think the result was cute, and the kids loved it!
What's in the Box?
White Fish Fillets w/ Whole Grain Pasta, Cheese & Nori Accents
Carrots, Celery, Tomatoes, Red Potatoes, Avocado
Cheese & Clementine

Red Panda Bento

One of my favorite animals is the red panda.  Also known as the firefox, red pandas dwell in trees in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and China.  They are currently endangered with an estimated 2500-3000 living in the wild. 
I didn't do this adorable creature justice in my bento.  Mine look more like dogs, but I wanted to share about these precious little animals! 
 What's in the box?
Red Pandas - Chili Seasoned Rice, White Rice, Nori Accents
Salad Bed, Cucumber, Carrots, Tomatoes
Chicken, Cheese
Mixed Veggies (Corn, Peas, Carrots & Green Beans)
Blueberries & Blackberries
