HUGE props to sheri of happy little bento for her chili bento yesterday, which featured an adorable two-tone carrot apple in the center of her magic round box. as i threatened to do in the comments on that post, i absolutely had to replicate that apple design, it was just love at first sight!! i tried to make my apples just like sheri’s, except that i replaced the orange carrot with veggie ham and the yellow carrot with white cheese. thanks for the awesome idea sheri, you rule!
the apples are the star of my lunch for tomorrow, and i added leaf picks to make them a bit more three-dimensional. they’re sitting on top of a thin layer of plain steamed rice, which is smoothed over some pan-fried tofu cutlets (sprinkled with garlic powder for flavor).
the rest of this slender box has blackberries in a paper food cup, two beautiful cherries, a steamed broccoli floret with a few pea pods, and two flower-cut carrots.
