Walrus Bento


Walrus Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Okay, we're done with Hello Kitty for awhile. For this bento I used the brown / red rice combo that looked like it would make a nice walrus. I mentioned in my review of Yum-Yum Bento Box that one of my favorite characters is the cute walrus onigiri on page 53. Well, mine doesn't look quite so cute, does it? When TinySprite saw it she asked "What is it? Oh, waris? Oh. Waris. Yeah!" So she didn't exactly let on that it wasn't a great example of one, but it was pretty obvious that she had no idea what kind of animal I was talking about. Oh well! Along with the walrus, which had nori eyes and freckles and radish tusks, she also got roast chicken, golden cauliflower, carrot sticks, strawberries and cherries. And in keeping with the marine theme, I used dolphin and fish picks, and my iridescent mermaid figurine that I got from gamene. Thank you megan! I love her! Can't imagine why the mermaid would remind her of me... can you? ^_^

I linked this bento at What's For Lunch! You can too!

  13. The Walrus is cute! I love that it has freckles! Yes, I can imagin the mermaid looks like you. It probably had alot to do with your beautiful long hair which mermaids have. :)

  14. Thank you tatabonita!

    Thanks Chantale; yours had me singing the high-pitched chipmunks song. Who got the bum deal here??

    Thanks a lot Bentobird!

    Kuusou, thank you!

    Mommyof2girlz, many thanks!

    Sonoma Bento, you're right. And thank you!

    So sweet Mrs. P! But I'll confess, the mermaid avatar appeals to me due to my love of swimming.... (although it's true I do have quite long hair as well!)

  15. Wow! Your bento are incredible. I'd laminate them and display them, but I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable eating works of art.

    Thanks for providing the linkage, and for passing on the numbering code. I'll try tweaking it.
