This is especially for you, young Padawan (Jedi Apprentice) MisterMan!
Everyone's favorite droids, C3PO (yellow pepper and radish) and R2D2 (quail egg, radish and lettuce detail)!
Butteryaki salmon, cucumbers, purple carrot skewer, roasted asparagus, peapods, black & white rice underneath. Also, black plum, lychee, strawberry, grapes and cantaloupe.
MisterMan recognized them right away (whew!) so I guess I did alright :) He's such an immense fan, he can tell me the color of everyone's lightsaber, and who uses Sith Lightning, and which episodes featured which battles. I'll hone my talents so I can do more characters for him :o)
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 13yo (8th grader) son & my 9yo (4th grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
