A-chan is absolutely thrilled that some of her class pets this year are turtles. In honor of this she asked me to create a bento for today that had a turtle. She is really getting into this whole asking for bento designs! So here is a rendition of my 'turtle sandwich'. And speaking of thrilled - the potato hash that I created for dinner last night was so loved by A-chan that she requested more for her bento today. Whoa. It's pretty hard to make a potato dish that she will eat these days.

In the bento: Peanut butter and sugar sprinkle sandwich with nori and soy turkey turtle on top, potato hash, grapes, cherry tomato and a baby carrot.

The nori of the turtle shell began to curl up as soon as I started putting the soy turkey on. But I decided that I liked the textured look of it and left it that way :)
