Oh Burger Man!

There was a lovely hint of fall in the air this morning! The cool weather will be so very welcome after the incredibly hot summer. In the meantime we are still enjoying the summer tomatoes, yum! Today's bento features a Tsukune Burger Man. He is totally not a traditional Tsukune, being neither made from chicken or actually made of any meat at all. (Can I still call it Tsukune?) I altered a tsukune patty recipe by using Morningstar Farms crumbles.

In the bento: Kraft mac'n'cheese, a huge cherry tomato, grapes on a star pick, pluot slices, steamed broccoli, a carrot flower stick, a tsukune burger with a halo of bread.

The completely huge cherry tomatoes are not only beautiful but delicious! And in order to prevent lunchtime eye injuries I have taken to cutting them in half - still lovely but less likely to squirt across the table while being bitten into :)

Burger Man's face is mayo with sugar dots for cheeks. On the side is a small yellow container filled with ketchup.
