two bunnies bento

7 09 2010

hey bento friends!  it’s been forever — my bad!  after a long summer “off” (and full of great stuff — an old friend’s lovely wedding, a fun surprise camping trip, a milestone birthday, and our adoption of a new puppy), i’m back to work this week at a brand new job, which also means back to bento.

adjusting to my new work schedule has left me completely exhausted, so just a short post tonight to get me back in the swing of things.  for tomorrow’s lunch, i have two wasabi-salmon onigiri topped with cheese bunnies and trimmed in nori.  i thought i was being clever, and modeled the facial features after what i remembered marshmallow peep bunnies as looking like, but it turns out i forgot their noses — oh well, next time!  (this cutter really is perfect for peep bunnies, so i’m sure you’ll see it again come easter.)  also in this box are champagne grapes, a cute tiny lady apple, some bamboo-shaped baran and carrots cut into a similar shape, steamed broccolini and corn, and two colorful tomatoes with carrot picks.  the bunny and flower-shaped cutters, as well as the carrot picks, were gifts from a sweet bento pal — thanks dear!

i haven’t been as active in the comments sections of all my favorite bento blogs, but i have been quietly enjoying all the fabulous “back to school” bentos — as usual, you bento ladies are full of great decoration tips and healthy, delicious meal ideas for your lucky kids.  thanks for inspiring me, as always; i hope i can “get my act together” and make my “back to work” bentos as fun and appetizing!

Hi megan!
Looks like lots of congrats are in order here: for your new job, new puppy, and for coming back to bento! What an exciting summer you’ve had!
And a delicious bento to make your comeback as well. I love the salmon onigiri; it’s my favorite. The bunnies are a cute touch, as are the tiny carrot picks and adorable mini fruit!
Have fun at your new job, and I’ll bet you make a few bento converts there soon :o)

Hey there! Don’t I know you? I’ve been sailing around too (but with no good excuse). So nice to see you up and running. The newspaper, hmm is it of meaning?

judy dear, long time no “talk,” hope you are well!😀 nope, newspaper (which is actually printed, kitchen-safe waxed paper) doesn’t mean anything, just thought it added a cute crafty touch.

The bunnies are too cute! Megan, I have missed your beautiful bentos. I love the pics of your puppy- he’s so cute! Too bad you are so far away, we could get together and have a doggie play-date!🙂

Yipppee! I was SO happy to see your fresh, sweet new bento when I clicked on bento zen as I have many times during your active and exciting time away from bentoland! Congrats on your new job, NEW PUPPY, and what sounds like a fun and dynamic summer!

This cuuuute bento has a lovely late-summer lilt to it with golden light, ripe fruit, and coy little rabbits..what a pleasure to have you back!!

thanks so much for your enthusiastic welcome back and congratulations, jenn! yup, lots of excitement and change in my life, and i kind of think this bento in some ways is representative of that transition, because you’re right — it’s got both late summer and early fall happening in it🙂
