Bento #151 Anpanman and His Friends Bento

I still have some blue pea flowers left sitting in the fridge, and I supposed to make the blue monster Sulley,  an overly confident, young hotshot Scaring student at Monsters University. But failed to come out its face details nicely, so I turned the original plan to Anpanman character.... haha

Anpanman is made of cooked ham, mini sausage, kombu (boiled seaweed) and nori.
Dish box: vegetarian chicken drumsticks, cherry tomatoes with sauteed Cameron salad leaf at the bottom, crabstick carrot rolls, strawberries and some green grapes at the bottom, broccoli and sweet peas

Bento #150 Sleeping Doggie Couple Bento

this is the dinner box for last Friday....

both of my kids and me myself love the inari very much.. but it is hard to find it at my place, and I'm so glad and thankful to Anne for helping me to buy the inari.

I was excited on the idea to turn the inari into doggie character. I trimmed the kombu to make them as doggies' ears and nose, doggies' eyes are cut out from nori sheet.

food in the box : fried shrimp paste chicken wing, sweet corn, broccoli, edamame sticks, cherry tomatoes, mini sausage, green leaf and carrot roses.
