Daily Bento

Did you know that a baby fish is called a fry?

I sure didn’t. Not until this weekend when I had an aquarium full of them.

Let me back up a sec so this makes sense.

Camryn got an aquarium for Christmas. The weekend after Christmas, her Daddy took her to the pet store where she picked out two fish. Those fish have been happy and thriving in their new home on our counter top.

Over the last few days we noticed that one of the fish was getting really… plump. And she was eating like crazy.

My Husband made a joke about her possibly being pregnant (at that point we didn’t even know it was a her – we just always referred to that fish as a girl).

Long story short, we go to my parents’ house for lunch and there are two fish in the tank.

We come home later that evening and there are nine.

Seven teeny tiny little fish.

We’re calling them the fry kids – remember them?

A fishy themed lunch seemed appropriate today.

Here it is.

I made two fish shaped sandwiches which represent her two full-grown fish. She also has mozzarella bubbles, and a cup full of fry kids (cupcake flavored Goldfish crackers). The grapes and tomatoes kind of look like the gravel in her aquarium and strawberries are her favorite so I put them in as well. I included a “great job” pick because she’s done such a good job of taking care of her new pets.

All nine of them.

    I love your theme! The mozzarella bubbles are so creative.
