Three Little Pigs

Rice is such a wonderful food. We love rice so much that we typically buy it in 20 lb bags. You can do so much with it, including color it pink and shape it into piggie heads! These aren't the 3 little pigs of the famous story however, they are a mama and papa and baby.

In the bento: pink rice onigiri, lemon slices, a veggie stirfry on a bread bowl, raspberries, and a pick of cheese cubes.

The piggy faces noses and ears are made from soy turkey, eyes are made from provolone and nori. I used the bread as a bowl under the stir fry veggies to catch all the sauce underneath and prevent the sauce from getting onto the fruit and cheese. That seemed to work pretty well but I think it confused A-chan :)

Horribly busy day ahead and I'm already running about an hour behind - I must run and try to catch up!
