Mom of the Year Makes Her Son's Lunch Look Like Awesome Art

Illustration for article titled Mom of the Year Makes Her Sons Lunch Look Like Awesome Art

With Mother's Day right around the corner, it's a good idea to tell your mom you love her. Go ahead, she's done a lot for you. If you're the son of Heather Sitarzewski though, you might have to give a little extra love. Wonderful soul Heather turns her son's lunches into amazing pieces of art.

According to what Heather told BoingBoing, she "decided during this past summer that [she] wanted to make a fun bento every day for [her] son's lunches this school year." To say the lunches she makes are just 'fun' is an understatement, they're inspired edible greatness that use popular children's characters and a wicked imagination to make healthy vegetables and crustless bread awesome. Michelin starred chefs don't got it like this. In her words:

Day one I put together a cute, generic style, bento. I knew immediately that I wanted to do Disney characters and other fun imagery. But little did I know, that crazy idea I had during the summer, would be received so warmly with my Facebook friends. I started posting them daily there and got so many requests for a place to see them all at once. A book, a blog... a tumblelog.


You can find all her wonderful creations at Lunchbox Awesome. She said she used recipes she found online to create these masterpieces but I'm sure there's more than a tinge of her goodness in them too. Ah, I miss the days of bringing lunch to school. Well, not really but I totally would miss it if I had these lunches. [Lunchbox Awesome via BoingBoing]

PS. I love you mom!

All I know is I barely had time this morning to throw some spaghetti-o's in thermoses and add a little banana and a fruit snack for my two little monsters lest they miss the bus. This must be a stay at home mom. That should not take away from the fact that this is pretty darn cool.
