Candy Corn Onigiri
Today's bento pic also features "Snowflake MacNeil" who came home with us from the Scottish Highland Games this weekend. When A-chan found a stuffed kitten for sale who also had a dashing scarf which just happened to be of our clan's tartan - how could I say no?
Our local Highland Games has started instituting a grand Children's program. We love it. She got to try a miniature version of the caber toss, sheaf toss and hammer throw which made watching the athletic events much more relevant. There were crafts and face painting, storytimes and dance lessons. We had a wonderful time and we did everything. I mean it - everything!
In the bento: Candycorn onigiri, black olive minions, sauteed tofu cubes, a tomato monster, nectarine slices, steamed broccoli and carrot leaves.
The tomato monster's eyes were made from soy turkey and nori. The small circles were punched out of the nori and then used for the onigiri's eyes. His tongue is also cut from soy turkey.
