Sleepy Pikachu

I decided that Pikachu needed to be as yawning and sleepy as I was this morning. Again it's another morning to be thankful for freezer stash! There was no particular rush today, but I was so sleepy that I probably would have hurt myself if I had tried to cook much :)

In the bento: Pikachu onigiri, two vegetarian meatballs from Trader Joe's, black olives, carrot stars, a Huge piece of steamed broccoli, and a slice each of apple and plum.

The Pikachu onigiri was frozen and I just decorated the face with nori and soy ham after thawing it in the microwave. Unfortunately my preferred "glue", mayo, was unavailable this morning since I was in too much of a rush yesterday and left it out on the counter when I made dinner. Soooo, I used strawberry jam instead and I have my fingers crossed that A-chan won't notice!

The veggie meatballs were also frozen and just shallow fried in butter before being plopped into the bento. The apple technically has a heart cut into it, but you can't really see half of it so it doesn't look like anything at all, lol. On the side are two more of the Valentine's chocolates.
