The Groundhog sees his shadow bento

And that means 6 more weeks of winter. It also means winter is over half-way done. So yay! Happy Groundhog Day!

This groundhog was made with peanut butter and nutella (Oh btw Happy Nutella Day is today!) and that's buttah for the whites of his eyes. I really envisioned something a little different than this. But this is what came out. It's all on my homemade sourdough mini loaf. 

Gamene over at bentozen requested the sourdough recipe, so I might try to post it someday. I sort of do it differently every time. Also Gamene is throwing an outrageous give-away, if you're into bento, check it out.

The rest of this bento is a deviled egg (I know - my old stand by) and bacon. For fiberous fun I added a sliced purple carrot and a little yellow carrot cut into sticks. And tangerine juicy jellies. Actually it looks like the groundhog is eyeing the candy in this pic.


  1. Wonderfully original and sweet. This bento made me smile, Judy!

  2. Oh my gosh, that is too cute!!! Love the groundhog! :D

  3. Adorable! What a great way to decorate with peanutbutter!

  4. SUCH a cool PBTiger! Roar! Oops that was my stomach growling (hope you didn't think it was the tiger in me ;)

    Gamene's giveaway *is* awesome, isn't it? Of course she got the main prize herself, going on a trip like that ;)
