Did you know that today is 90210 day?
September 2, 2010 - 9/02/10. Ergo, 90210 day! Way fun!
A friend brought this fact to my attention earlier today and I've been humming the theme song all afternoon. Such a momentous occasion must be marked by a themed bento, I decided.
Afterschool snack bento for my girl:
We have a cheese sandwich to display the famous zip code, made of strawberry fruit leather. The smiling barran in the back is to pay tribute to Nat's "Mega Burger". :)
In the front we have peach slices for The Peach Pit. I had to add music notes fruit leather there for two reasons - #1, because that theme song tune of 90210 is just SO 90210, and #2, remember when the show started to jump the shark and The Peach Pit became "The Peach Pit after dark"? That strange music/concert club sorta place? Yeah, well, the music notes are for that too. ;-)
A star-shaped cup of yogurt covered raisins (SO California!) and some pretzel thins round out the box. Speaking of thin, remember how stinkin' skinny all those girls were? Good grief.
It would have been fun to add in some bad sunglasses and surf boards, but there was not enough space in the bento box. ;-)
Were YOU a faithful 90210 watcher? Man, I just loved that show. And I'm not the least bit ashamed to also admit I'm a total fan of the new 90210 either. ;-)
