Here is my FIRST contribution to the Halloween theme bento! (I will be posting many more :) A skull onigiri with purple carrot eyes, and Okinawan sweet potato and yellow beet detail. When MisterMan saw it, he said "Cool! You made a Tusken Raider!" WHAT?! *sigh*
Lemon crusted salmon (I did not make this, alas), romanesco, yellow and purple cauliflower, peapods, sweet potato, and radish atop arugula sprouts. Fruit box has little strawberries (they are getting very tiny these days), giant black grapes, plum, golden raspberries and blueberries.
We might also call this a Day of the Dead bento.... which it also might call to mind...
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 10yo (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 ^-^!
