Huge flower onigiri
This huge flower onigiri is the reason behind the pink rice that A-chan requested. She wanted a pink flower onigiri bento! Our new rice cooker's first job was a huge batch of pink rice. And do I mean huge! We're probably still going to be eating pink rice next week.
In the bento: Pink rice onigiri with provolone cheese petals and carrot center, baby corn spears, apple bunny, a small bunch of grapes, fried tofu, steamed green beans and a pick of baby tomatoes.
The humongous flower onigiri mold is in the background. It's all sleek and shiny and I love it! However, the metal tends to get a bit hot when it's full of freshly cooked rice. I ended up having to get out my oven mitt to finish the onigiri.
The size of the onigiri also means that there is no way for A-chan to eat it by hand so she uses a fork.
