Pizza bento and #twitterfoodparty

April 4, 2011

Pizza bento

Can you guys believe is April already? Wow, time goes fast…

I had a busy week and I hope this one is going to be calmer….

Anyways… remember that every month a group of friends on twitter pick a food item/theme and agree to show a picture of the meal we are having? The #twitterfoodparty happens every last monday of each month… (hah? It went already!). Yes… but it was postponed for today! YAY!

The theme this time is… Apples!

I must admit I wasn’t that prepared to make anything… so I came up with these while preparing my daughter´s bentos.

Husband and I had Brie toasts with apple for dinner together with soup. Hors d’œuvre?? well… I don’t know, should I call this an appetizer or dessert? :P

Brie, apple & honey toast

Apple, brie & honey toast

Not a recipe actually but I will write how I did: toast gently two slices of bread, rub butter on tops. Slice thinly half green apple and cut 4 slices of brie cheese. Arrange the cheese and apple slices on the toasted bread, drizzle a bit of honey and sprinkle cracked nuts on top (pecan the best but I used almond praline). Grill until bubbling and serve.

Alternatively, make it “savory” seasoning with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

See? Simple… but it was very good!!

Pizza bento

The bentos for the girls today consists of last night´s leftovers. Pikkusiili wanted pizza for dinner and I usually make a bigger batch enough for snacks later. ^__^

The contents of the boxes: homemade pizza “bolognese”, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, clementines, apple slices and lettuce. Little bees made with cheddar and white cheese slices and nori details.

I so love leftovers :P

Have a great week friends!

    I looooove when you make bentos!! Looking at them always makes me happy :) I really like your apple party submission too! I’m making a dish with apples and brie as well, lol! They taste so good together. Now I know what to do with any leftovers…. if I have any.

    Your bento always so cheerful. The bees are so stand out and cute! Buzzz … Yummy apple, brie & honey toast for #twitterfoodparty! Funny that I just realized that we don’t use apple much in our cooking or in our dishes. Mostly just eat them like that or for juice :)

    • karaimame Says:

      It might be our favorite way to eat apples too… eat them like that or juice ^__^. But apples for cooking are a nice option specially when you have lots :)
      Thank you Lia!


  4. I agree with Lia, your bentos are full of bright, cheerful zest! Bees are a darling theme, so crisp and cute here!

    Mmmmm, must try that brie apple honey treat soon :D!

    • karaimame Says:

      Thank you Jenn! Your comment always cheers me up :). Bees are also easier to make when they are only yellow and black ^__^!
