Onwards and downwards - I made Goose a special Tic-Tac-Toe Bento today. The X's are sweet potatos and the O's are cucumber cut-outs. The grid was made with nori. The main protein is a car-shaped boiled egg (let's hear it for egg molds!) and the salad is blueberry/apple. All in all, I was very pleased with this bento! I hope he actually has time to eat it (as I suspect he may actually play a few games first :P :P :P). I included dumpling sauce in a lion container for his rice and eggs (and possibly potatos and cucumbers . . . if it makes him eat them, I'm all for it!).
The blueberries are a little sour :( :( :( In fact, T. was thinking of using them as a dare at work - so I may let them sit for a day or two and hope they ripen a little more. T.'s bento was intentionally non-cute today (with the exception of the panda sauce holder). He has brown rice topped with edamame, imitation crab and avacado salad, blueberry/apple salad, and a boiled egg cut in half and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
I have no bento today as, for some odd reason, my work actually gives us Columbus Day as a day off. Which gives me time to catch up on some housework, blog posting, etc. And I must say I'm surprised that I'm already on Bento 20. Given the amount of work and the ungodly hours I have to wake up in order to bento, I wasn't sure I would make it this far! Let's hear it for perseverance! (Or obsessions - because there is no way in heck I would wake up at 5:00 a.m. to EXERCISE ::grin::).
