Frankenstein Bento


Frankenstein Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Only one bento today, since TinySprite only goes to preschool 3 days a week. I used my two-tier red usagi box and put pan-fried chicken and red pepper sausage on a lettuce leaf in the bottom tier, plus a Frankenstein musubi made from broccoli rice and decorated with nori facial details plus sriracha cheeks. Upper tier has carrots (yellow carrot flowers in the bottom too), purple cauliflower, grapes, strawberry and golden cherry tomato. MisterMan told me his classmates thought it was The Hulk, but he set them right, telling them it was "FrankenstEEn". Uh huh, okay.
I added this bento to What's For Lunch; head over there to see more!

  4. If he really wants to set his classmates straight, you could teach him to explain that the monster is actually NOT Frankenstein. Nope. Not not not!!! Frankenstein was the name of the MAN who created the monster. :)

    Adorable bento!

  6. Thanks Bobo- Frankenstein is a fun one to do, with the green and all. The Hulk never came to my mind until he told me that, but I guess they do look similar. Heh. Hope you can find the colorful produce too. I love the easy way they add color to the bento.

    Thanks Chantale! I always have broccoli at hand, so I'm always trying to find a use for it :)

    Hillary, that's right, it's Frankenstein's MONSTER; I always forget that too! Thanks!

    Thanks Sysyl and KidsDreamwork!

  15. Bobo, thanks for linking. Yours is cute too!
    Yenny and Lia, thank you!
    Oscar, I always ask him how he liked it and he tells me the kids say "Awww, so cuuuuuute", which I think is mainly the girls. The boys may enjoy the Hulk better, I think :)
    Thanks a lot karaimame, bentobird and Mommyof2girlz!
