spring sailboat bento

3 04 2011

i hope everybody had a nice weekend! we finally got some nice, spring-like weather, with temperatures in the mid-50s and two days of fairly consistent sunshine.

tomorrow’s bento has a nautical theme, with a sailboat (nori and colored soy paper on cheese) and an anchor (cut from steamed carrot). i have a small piece of broiled salmon, with more flaked underneath the rice (which is mixed with seaweed and sesame seed furikake). a few steamed broccoli florets, a mini yellow pepper, and the cutest mini-strawberries round out this meal.

happy start of the week!

Ahoy there! Cool nautical theme echoed in your fabric background too. Salmon and rice is just what magewappa calls for I think. Delish!

thanks lia dear! hope you had a great weekend. for the anchor i used a new gumpaste cutter, i think it turned out cute, but it was hard to find a carrot big enough around!
