Top tier: Pasta salad with homemade garlic crouton maple leaf & carrot flower.
Bottom tier: Soy turkey and cheese sandwich halves with baby tomatoes and grapes, cheese coins.

A special doggie bento for A-chan. Yet another attempt at getting her to try a sandwich. She ate everything else including the decorations but didn't touch the sandwich itself, lol.
Top tier: Pasta salad with homemade garlic crouton flowers, carrot flower.
Bottom tier: Doggie sandwich: soy turkey and cheese inside, morningstar farms chik nugget ears and snout, baby tomato half nose, cheese coin and nori eyes. 2 french fries, baby tomato halves, grape halves, grape and pineapple 'hula dancer' skewers.

I thought that making sandwiches was a great idea and that it would be a huge time saver - what's easier than making sandwiches, right? I was so wrong. It was very difficult (for me at least) to cut the sandwiches to the right size to fit into the boxes. The preparations seemed to take a whole bunch longer then my normal wed. night bento. Oh well :)
