Bento (109) - Soy Bunnies in a Field of Edamame

Soy bunnies! Edamame! Not as much protein as I would like in this bento, but it was super nommy. Top level was the standard apple/sweet potato salad and some leftover noodles (and sweet soy sauce). Bottom level was a trio of soy bunnies and edamame in the shells - topped with carrot flowers. I didn't have time to take the photo as I rushed out of the house - so I took a photo at work (which is why the background is a mahogany table . . . :P). And I just noticed one of the bunny ears wasn't straight. Too late to fix it now!

Bento (108) - Noodles N' Beef

Top level is beef in sweet soy sauce (why yes - it is one of my favorites) garnished with lettuce and accompanied by noodles and a kawaii pink bear food pick. >.< Bottom level is apple/sweet potato salad and yogurt topped with mandarin oranges.

Bento (107) - New Kitty Welcome Bento

No - I have not forgotten about my blog. I finally decided to get a new kitty (after losing my small black tortie in February). Unfortunately, new kitty came with kennel cough, antibiotics, and a thicker instruction manual than the one that came with my cell phone. Her presence did inspire me to try making a black kitty charaben. Not too bad for my first try . . .

Objects above the kitty are a boiled egg cut in half and topped with carrot stars. Kitty is made out of nori and cheese. Top right is apple/sweet potato salad. Bottom right is avacado dipped in salt water to prevent discoloration and a container of rice vinegar with a dash of salt to soften the flavor.

Bento (106) -Panda in a Cucumber Forest

What can I say? I liked how the title sounded - even if it isn't quite accurate . . . but I may have to try making a cucumber forest shortly! Top left is slices of cucumber and slices of roast chicken. Bottom is rice topped with cucumbers and accented with a panda soy sauce holder. Top right is grape/kiwi salad topped with cheddar jack cheese stars, and bottom is potato salad with pickled plum. YUM!

On an unrelated (or sort of related) side note - I went to Applebees with Goose - and when it came time to tuck our leftovers away, I realized they had given me a small white box and pretty food. SQUEE! So I attractively arranged my leftovers :P :P :P And other ways to annoy family and friends. Heh.
