On the left, a happy heart kitty. Pink rice, a carrot mouth and ears, red hots for eyes, and a tail made of cinnamon Twizzler. The letters are carrot, the hearts are Sweet Tarts, with broccoli framing the kitty. All on a bed of celery to lift the whole thing up.

On the right, two little muffin mice. They're mixed berry heart shaped muffins with cinnamon Twizzler tails, rhubarb whiskers, and red hot noses stuck on with small dabs of icing. The hand is goat cheese cut to show "I Love You" in sign language, with a backdrop of Dove dark chocolate hearts. More Sweet Tarts for a little extra color, and lettuce to frame the whole thing up.

Ok I have one!
I made this the day before Valentine's day but didn't take photos off my camera until this weekend.


Kissing egg chicks over a carrot nest with their (quail) egg. Mr. Chick has broccoli flowers for Mrs. Chick and a strawberry crest. Mrs. Chick has a bologna heart. A pink beet juice dyed heart rises from above their kiss in a bologna starry sky. Their nest rests in a tree of heart shaped berries.

The egg chicks were inspired by something I found online. This is my first time doing anything nearly this cute and I think I'm hooked!
Thanks for all the great entries, everyone!

I made a Valentine's bento for my son that I wanted to share for fun, but please do not count this as an actual contest entry (wouldn't be fair as this is my site). Just FYI! The full blog entry gives a full description of the contents, gear, packing info, etc. It contains Heart-shaped onigiri rice balls filled with Gohan Desu Yo! seasoned seaweed paste (colored with red or green hana-ebi shrimp powder, decorated with nori seaweed and mamenori soy wrappers), blueberries, steamed zucchini with Korean barbecue sauce, and chicken from a homemade Indian curry (lal shorve vala murgh).
