Bento #76 another onigiri

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 2:32 PM

Today's bento is pretty simple, almost none of cooking required.

I made onigiri of boy and girl, decorated them with nori for hair, eyes and mouth, then add kani for their 'head scarf' since I am running out of ham. Side dishes are fish shaped nuggets, kamaboko stars, sliced kiwi, steamed broccoli and steamed baby corn. I inserted a new food pick onto baby corn, to make umbrella shape *always couldn't resist myself in getting new cute bento stuff!* The hat food pick was also inserted on top of onigiri, as to avoid girlie theme for Jovann's yellow box. Apparently it worked fine since he did not say anything after peeping.

The umbrella corn is cute! Now I find a match for my boy, who will always complain if I made something too girlish for him! :)

It doesn't seem to matter how simple onigiri is made, IMO it tends to look like you went to great lengths to prepare it once you have slapped on some eyes and a mouth. Especially with the little rosy cheeks lol. You are such an inspiration!
