Playful Kitty

The kitty caught a spaghetti string. Naughty kitty! A really simple bento today that I hope will be perfect and counteract the disaster of yesterday. The cute penguins in the top tier yesterday ended up on the floor of school :( Today I tried to make her bento extra easy and used a box that A-chan was extremely familiar with so that she wouldn't have any trouble opening it. Keeping my fingers crossed!

In the bento: Vegetarian spaghetti with a lovely black olive on top, a container of mango chunks, a container of green peas, two picks of black olives, one pick of corn and a cute kitty of provolone cheese.

For my spaghetti I took my grandmother's recipe (which was hard won and learned many years ago) and just switched the ground beef that she used for Morningstar Farms crumbles. It's now a family favorite and my mother likes the veggie recipe so much that she learned to make it from me!

The little kitty face I drew out on paper then cut out. The paper shape was then put onto the cheese and I used a sharp knife to cut around it. The details are nori and sesame seeds with soy turkey for the ears.
