Warm Pikachu

Pikachu is all bundled up for the frosty days of winter in a nice warm scarf. Thank goodness for my freezer stash! This week has been all about Holiday shopping, not grocery shopping...

In the bento: A pikachu onigiri that was in the freezer, sesame tofu cubes on picks, steamed broccoli and baby tomatoes, carrot stars, 3- cheese ravioli and a small bunch of grapes.

Pikachu's facial details: The cheeks are soy ham, the mouth is nori and soy pepperoni, the eyes are nori and provolone chhese. His scarf is provolone cheese with carrot stars.

I've been enjoying using the provolone instead of the mozzarella lately. It's easier to cut shapes from and doesn't melt as easily - two important things for cute bentos!

I love provolone too! It works really well for bento details. Love the Pikachu! Is it covered in a fried tofu pouch? Looks kind of like inarizushi.

Thanks, Sonoma Bento!! Nope, no inarizushi - though now that you mention it I really want some inarizushi :) It's just the yellow colored rice,
