One Sided Love
Isn't autumn wonderful? There is a nice chill in the air this morning, just enough to make us shiver at the first step outdoors. We haven't quite managed the wardrobe change for the new temperatures yet. A-chan has grown so much that every morning there is a new discovery of cold-weather clothing that no longer fits!
Today's bento was inspired by the beautiful zucchini that I found at the store last night. They were a perfect green for froggies!
In the bento: Lots of four cheese ravioli, zucchini froggy faces, carrot flowers, steamed broccoli, a lemon wedge, raspberries, tofu hearts.
The strange shapes left over from cutting heart shapes out of tofu were cooked as well and are hidden underneath the hearts. The froggy faces were cut out of zucchini with facial features made from provolone cheese, carrot and sesame seeds. A container with grated parmesan is in the background, ready to be sprinkled over the ravioli.
