Bento #137 The Grasshopper Playing Fiddle Bento

This is the bento I've prepared recently and sent for contest " The 2013 International Bento Contest, Pasta Bento" organized by Bento & Co....and I got no chance to get into the 20 finalist :(... anyway, it is another good experience for myself, and sure I'll take part for next year contest!! Gambateh!!
Congratulation to the grand winners and all the 20 finalists!! You may check here for the grand winners and the 20 finalists for the contest, and dun forget to vote on the bento that you like!! :D 

I've got this idea from the story of " The Grasshopper And The Ants", and I tried to make the bento showing that the grasshopper continued playing his fiddle and dancing in the moonlight in my main food container (unfortunately, I've forgot the scroll for the violin, Emoji) ,  while the side dish showing the foods that are collected by the ants before winter is coming.

main dish: white sauce spaghetti tossed in some dried dill, different colours of egg sheet, cooked ham, cheese, nori, sweet pea leaves and some green leaf...
side dish: fried breadcrumbs prawns, tamagoyaki, pickled gherkins, strawberries, blueberries, orange, cucumber and some green leaf...
