Lunch Made Easy: I love you to the moon and back.

I always like to incorporate things Little Miss is learning about in school into her lunches when I can. (Such as her Apple Day lunch or Very Hungry Caterpillar bentos to name a couple.)
Right now they have been learning about the solar system. They just finished learning about the sun and next are moving onto the moon and stars.

I had done a Lost in Space themed bento for Little Miss before so I wanted to make this one different.
What a great opportunity to enjoy breakfast for lunch AND use my Williams Sonoma Outer Space Pancake Molds! :)

I made Little Miss a pancake using the moon mold pictured above.

I then used the remaining batter to make an additional pancake. I cutout a few stars using my cookie cutters after cooking it.

As for the rest of the lunch, what goes with pancakes? Eggs & meat of course, lol. Top right is a hardboiled egg done in my star egg mold. There are also a few beef stick bites beside it.
Bottom right has a container with a small amount of syrup in it for dipping her pancake, four star shaped cheese crackers, and blueberries around the container.
Lunch is packed inside an EasyLunchBoxes container.

  3. Love it! I'm too scared to try those molds, even though I have them. Pancakes and I don't get along well, if I'm the one cooking...
