Skull Bento

Skull Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
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...


  1. The purple carrot make the skull bento very dramatic ... is the carrot taste the same with the regular carrot?

  2. Thanks Lia, and yes, it does taste the same, I think :)

  3. Tusken Raider - that is too funny. You are the coolest mom alive, then, huh? :) I hope you went with it...

  4. Thanks Mer! Luckily, he is endearingly easily pleased with this Tusken! If that's what he sees, who am I to argue? ^_^
