happy squirrel bento

7 03 2010

another quick one tonight, relying on my punches and cutters to do the work for me.

the squirrel is cut from vegetarian ham and cheese, with nori-punched facial details.  he’s surrounded by some cheese and vegetarian ham medallions, topped by flowers punched with one of my “paper shapers” punches.

the fruit and veggie section has a big plump strawberry, some kiwi slices, some clementine slices, pea pods and cucumber baran, roasted sweet mini peppers, a pierced tomato heart, and one edamame shumai.

hope everyone had a fantastic weekend — we had beautiful spring-like weather here in NYC, and i hope it was sunny wherever you were, too!

Super cute–your lively squirrel looks solar-powered by the first burst of spring-shiny weather! Nice fresh baran, too!

Quick, but cute! This squirrel is really nice.
I’m happy to hear you had nice spring weather.
Here in Germany is the winter back… snow all over the weekend *sigh*

I agree…what an adorable squirrel. Our weather has turned and not for the better. It’s practically snowing!
