Pizza Planet Pikmin

Ever heard of Pikmin? If you haven't, you're too young! We used to play the original Pikmin on the GameCube before we had kids. Then Pikmin 2 came out. There is a version available for the Wii now I believe. But Pikmin 3 has been in the works for what seems like FOREVER, and our boys are once again impatiently anticipating its supposed release this fall.

AJ's red Pikmin lunch: rice triangle w/goma shio & a red pepper Pikmin; green grapes; green olive; Cluck-phrey Chic-A-Roos; plum slices; cucumber strips; carrots; green beans; smoked Tofurky "flower".

I've gotta say I love
being able to set my
iPhone or the iPad
nearby when creating
character food. The
image is right where I
need it and I don't have
to run back and forth
to the big computer.

I was putting Ryan's lunch in a Toy Story bento, so I made him a pizza planet rocket. Of course when he saw the Pikmin that AJ had asked for he was jealous, so it looks like I'll be making more Pikmin bentos soon!

Well yeah, THAT long ago I had an Intellivision and Rob had an Atari. Then I had an Amiga and Rob had a Nintendo. But Pikmin came out in 2001, so it's not ANCIENT...like my husband, teehee. :::ducks in case he sees this!:::
