Bento (39) - Las Vegas Slot Machine!

In honor of going to Las Vegas tomorrow (no new bentos until next week :P :P :P unless I get REALLY creative (and bored) over the Holiday) - I just had to make a slot machine bento!

It turned out surprisingly well - the only thing I would change is to cut the quail egg cherry in the lower right in half to make it look like it was appearing "on screen." Otherwise, the top is blueberries and mandarin oranges with two sauce holders filled with soy (my dumpling ran out . . . grrrrrr). The yellow accent and the yellow lemon are both cut from an omelet, the "cherries" are quail eggs dyed red with celery stems, and the dark lines are nori, topped with provolone cheese cut outs.

Goose had a rather boring bento - but as my refrigerator is on the fritz (double grrrrrrr) and froze half my ingredients, I was working with what I had. Goose got rice shapes, blueberries, peas, quail egg cherries, and mandarin oranges. Yum!
