speedy bunny bento

20 04 2011

this speed-packed bento is my nod to easter… the “speedy” in the title refers both to the bunny and to the bento-making time!

it’s a simple meal in my trusty tiffin:  some bulldog-glazed veggie meatballs, japanese pickles, rice with scallions and peas, a few carrot flowers, and a sweet potato bunny.

no bento for me on friday, so this is my last reminder that the highly-sought-after bento play food set auction ends in just over a day… and then we’ll be in easter weekend.  wishing all my bento pals a wonderful holiday weekend with their families!

So lovely! I have meatballs today too! The mirror effect of the stainless and the newspaper is cool. Happy weekend to you too!

thanks heather! yup, wanted to keep it SUPER simple today, sometimes those are the hardest to do but this one came together very quickly.

Wonderful bento once again! As Heather said, this is so fresh. It makes me think of an early morning bunny cavorting in dewy young grass (maybe in a city park, with the modern newsprint and silvery tiffin :D).

Happy holiday weekend, hope it will be full of high spring spirits and lovely foods!

What a coincidence, I made bunny-themed bento too today :)! I love bulldog sauce as well, I always use it for tonkatsu or fried ebi.

I have never seen nor thought about doing cutouts from a sweet potato! I absolutely love it!!
Silly question though… Did you bake and cool the potato first or ?? (new at bento making but totally loving it!)
Thanks!
