Celebrating the Wonderful World of Dr. Seuss

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
Boogs is trying too hard to smile. That expression makes me smile.

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, I am participating in a Bento Blogger & Friends Dr. Seuss Blog Hop today. Boogs loves Dr. Seuss books! His all time favorite is Green Eggs And Ham. This lunch shows where to eat green eggs and ham. I will eat them with a marshmallow fox in a cracker box. I will eat green eggs and ham on a pb&j train in the cheese rain. I will eat them in a broccoli tree. Boogs also has blueberries and dried apricot in this lunch.



Horton Hatches The Egg was my favorite Dr. Seuss book when I was a kid. In this lunchbox, pb&j Horton is admiring his little cheese elephant-bird, there is a nest of Cheerios supported by pretzel branches, a circus tent made of strawberries, a salad with a carrot nest holding a spotted tomato egg, and yogurt.



I made a Seuss lunch this past weekend to go with the book Hop On Pop. In the lunchbox: Cheese kids hopping on cheese Pop. Ham, strawberries, spinach, and yogurt (not in the picture) complete this lunch.




A few weeks ago, I made a Dr. Seuss lunch based on the book One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Each item in this lunch represents a part of the book. One fish PB & Nutella sandwich, "this one has a little star" pb&j sandwich, "some are sad" blueberries, "and some are slow" ham & cheese snail-like rolls, "say what a lot of fish there are" Goldfish crackers, spinach & broccoli grass and shrubs for the place where the "sheep who took a walk in their sleep" walked, and yogurt that the Yink wouldn't drink because he only likes to "drink pink ink".

  17. Wow, that looks great! I'm not nearly as skilled as you in bento making, I'm afraid. But this is great inspiration. How did you make the eyes on the fishes?

    1. The fish have candy eyeballs. http://www.amazon.com/White-Black-Icing-Eyes/dp/B00085F9SA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330956328&sr=8-2

      Other times I use cheese, olives, nori, or tortilla for eyeballs.
