The Proof is with the Sumo

Aha!  I have it!  Proof that my bentos do indeed stand the test of time and are remembered once they have been devoured.   Yes, my daughter asked me to make her another Sumo bento with a sweet potato bun!  Here is a link to the one I made last January:   http://bentoanarchy.blogspot.com/2011/01/sumo-boy.html   Apparently it really made an impression on her!  One day when she is twenty-five she will ask me, "Why do I get really hungry whenever someone mentions sumo wrestling?"

This guy is a little different from the first one and his topknot kind of gets lost in the lettuce.  I have my fingers crossed that we can go see the Sumo demo at JapanFest in Atlanta this weekend.  A-chan would be ecstatic!  There will be traditional dance demonstrations, archery and tons more so I am hoping, hoping, hoping :)  Also, a certain vendor who is rumored to be selling dango will be getting a lot of my cash if it turns out to be true.  For I truly love dango.

In the bento:  A sweet potato bao made into a sumo, strawberry slices, corn croquette, a container of green peas with some carrot flowers, two bamboo picks with sauteed tofu and one solitary blackberry.
