tonight’s bento features a few new goodies i got in the mail today from a bento friend — aren’t those packages the best?!
the entire theme was inspired by the cute red riding hood baran. love it!!! to go with her, i made a wolf onigiri (the wolf’s face is ham, with kamaboko ears and nori eyes, eyebrows, nose and whiskers). the second onigiri has an awesome pre-cut nori shape from a packaged set that i have coveted FOREVER! my bento pal was kind enough to send it over, yay, thanks again you-know-who!
in the “red riding hood” tier of the box, i have carrot sticks, crinkle-cut cucumber slices, a little bit of pickled carrot, daikon and lotus root salad garnished with cilantro (in a yellow food cup), a few takuwan flowers, half of a vietnamese spring roll, and some cherries. rounding out the “wolf” tier of the box is some cabbage, and the onigiri are stuffed with tofu and peanut sauce. before i closed up the box and stuck it in the fridge, i wrapped the onigiri in saran wrap, which will help keep them from drying out, and help keep the wolf’s face stuck on there!
here is a close up of the predator and his prey:
in the next few days i may be implementing some changes to the layout of this blog, to better accommodate the new ad banners. please be patient if things look a little funky!
