Today's bento was easy: leftover chicken with steamed broccoli, carrots, steamed purple Okinawan sweet potato circles made to look like a caterpillar with nori and cheese details, plus rice stick antennae. There are some red grapes and a sliced orange in the fruit section. I added rice balls made to look like fruit, with their leaf picks and nori faces. You might be wondering whether my boy has finally taken a liking to rice (or you might not).
In other news, the winners of the Spring 2010 Bento Contest have been announced on Just Bento, and my Spring Momiji Bento placed 7th. I'm very happy about that, and would like to say a big "thank you!" to all of you who voted for me :) Congrats to megan of Bento Zen and Lia of My Bentolicious, who took 1st and 2nd place, respectively! It was an honor to be included in such talented bentomaking company, and hopefully some of you can enter next year's contest. ^_^
