tomorrow’s lunch was inspired by a snail bento by the talented lucky sundae – how cute, right?! i love her work. my snail is a little bit different, but with the same “shell” — i used white cheese, yellow soy paper, steamed carrot and fish sausage. i gave my snail little fish sausage cheeks, too! and my snail is crawling on a sesame leaf.
the base for the snail scene is omurice — a thin egg crepe wrapped around fried rice (i fried mine with kimchi and tofu). in the back section of the box, i put the last of the leftover broiled salmon, some steamed brussels sprouts, purple cauliflower, romesco, pea pods, takuwan, a plump vine tomato, and a carrot butterfly.
