Bentos for 4/6/08

Two days of sandwich lunches and Husband now deserves a proper bento.

Top tier has two mirin furikake filled inari that I folded over a bit to make fit and cut a quil's egg in half to make the two heads of eggs in the bath with prawn tails sticking out the end. I wanted to make them look like wee mermaids and planned on cucumber green cut to look like fins - but I ran out of cucumber. So they look kind of rude instead. Cherry tomatoes, salami flowers - What?! A bloke can have salami flowers! And a star onigiri.

Bottom has a grilled ham, carrot and pepper roll that I added Thai 7 spice and sesame. Shrimp, carrot and a heart onigiri.

Husband is Loved, and he is a Star.

Sassy says two onigiri are too much for her to eat at lunch, so although there are two here, I made them thinner because I need to fill the space up with something! Or else she'll have to get a smaller bento box. Now there's an incentive to get more gear if ever there was!

Top has box of raisins, haribo and the edible joke for the day - which I love.

Two mirin furikake star onigiri with nori stars, two HB quail's eggs, raw broccoli and rocket leaves.

Bottom has ham and cheese wheels with hot dog flowers and crabs and carrot sticks.

Tell me; do you think it's weird this kid will happily eat raw broccoli but refuses to eat it cooked? She is a weirdo, right?
