New York State Bento

New York State Themed Lunch

I made this New York State themed lunch for my 8 year old nephew. This is my second attempt. Last year I tried one but did not like it enough to post here. The beaver and Long Island were the problem last year. In this bento I tried a different type of beaver and omitted Long Island (which happens to be my place of birth) from our state shape.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Status of Liberty: Green pepper

New York State Shape: Cheese quesadilla

Beaver: Tortilla broiled with cooking spray and paprika (our state animal)

Apples: Our state fruit

Eastern Bluebirds: Tortillas broiled with cooking spray and sanding sugar (state bird), Wine Red Garnet (state gem) is under the bluebirds

Not Pictured: Greek yogurt (important state product) dip with grated apple and maple syrup (product from the Sugar Maple – our state tree)
