In the bento: Jack'o'lantern pancake sandwiches with yellow tinted icing, soy sausage links, raspberries, tiny carrot flowers, sugar snap peas and two pan fried potato kitties.
Not only was this bento a snap to put together, it only needed one pan for cooking the veg. sausage, snap peas and potatoes. I boiled the snap peas in the pan for 3 minutes and removed them with chopsticks. Into the hot water went the sausage links straight from the freezer. They got cooked for 5 minutes. When they came out the pan was dried and then used to lightly fry the potatoes with a tiny bit of olive oil.
The Jack'o'Lantern faces were cut with a fillet knife very, very carefully! I put a generous dollop of the icing in between so that it would squish through the faces a bit.
