There is another small green triangle onigiri, a cherry tomato, some cheddar bunnies and a few sweet midget pickles.
This bento also contains the teeniest tiniest apple bunnies I have ever made. They were so incredibly cute!! I used a Lady apple to make them. In the picture below the large apple is a Gala which I love and usually use in just about anything. The small one is a Lady apple that we got at Super H Mart. I have since learned that our local Kroger carries them! A-chan thinks they are the bestest cutest apples in the world. She has trouble biting into them since they are rather firm, but loves them once they are cut up.

The requirements of the award are to list seven facts about myself and then choose seven other bloggers to recieve the award. So here goes!
2- I love to play the harp.
3- Just like Lia Chen of Bentolicious, I’m horribly scared of cockroaches. There is absolutely no reason for it, but I am!
4- I have always wanted tattoos but am unable to get them because of my blood clotting disorder. It is a huge frustration! I particularly covet the traditional tattoos of the Rabari tribes in Gujarat.
5- My biggest fear: claustrophobia. It seems to be getting worse as I grow older.
6- As a child I was raised as a meat eater. I became a vegetarian when I was 21. But the traditional way of eating that I was brought up on is still very much a part of my cooking methods. So every meal has to include a ‘meat’ as a main dish, or these days a substitute soy product. This annoys me a great deal and I wish that I could change it.
7- I don’t like sugar. Sweet things in moderation are good. But ultimately we only eat something with sugar in it about once every two weeks. Of course we indulge heavily in sugary items when we attend conventions. Cons are not for healthy eating, you know! :)
