kitty sausage bento

24 05 2010

no, not sausage made from a kitty, a piece of sausage made into a kitty…

i guess cats are just what people see when they stare at their food waiting for the characters inside to show themselves?  this happened to pikko recently, with cute results!  in my case, i knew i wanted to use a sausage disc, and the darkish brown color made me think of using light-colored features, which led me to a pink fish sausage nose, white cheese eyes with white sesame eyelashes, a yellow cheese mouth, and pale somen whiskers.

this kitty left her paw print on a quail egg, which is packed with steamed broccoli, my last asparagus tip, takuwan slices, blackberries, a juicy tomato, some peapods, and a sweet potato blossom.  the rice is decorated with some edamame halves and black sesame seeds.  alongside this lunch i have a sakuranbo (cherry jelly), one of yesterday’s purchases at minamoto kitchoan — can’t wait to try it!

UPDATE: i found the place where i got the idea for a paw-print on a quail egg… should have guessed it was the always-genius lucky sundae!

Miao…come here cute kitty bento! So bright and savory…her paw print on the quail egg is squeal-worthy! Loving the gorgeous sweets from MK as bento accents, megan (OMG, that purple iris)!

Cute kitty! You make the facial parts perfectly! And I amazed … you always can get so many colors for your bento🙂

thanks lia! facial parts were easy with a circle cutter – just cut the round shapes and then cut a crescent off the edge. i try to use many colors, but i am missing the purple potatoes, hope my market gets them again soon!

Cute idea for the kitty sausage! Another bento for me to copy! Um…thanks!🙂

I must say that you have a lot self control. There wouldn’t be any wagashi left at my house. Gone in 60 seconds!
