It's raining, it's raining! Our area desperately needed the rain so we're rejoicing. It's been raining for two straight days now. The bleary foggy day outside makes me want to sit with a huge mug of coffee and read books all day. Poor A-chan had her school fieldtrip cancelled because of the rain though. She was so disappointed and freaked out when she thought I had forgotten to leave her car seat - totally not getting the connection that no fieldtrip meant no need for the car seat to stay at school.
Today's bento has just a tiny hint of fall. I'm gearing up towards making Halloween bentos but you're just going to have to wait, nya!
In the bento: Raspberries, steamed broccoli, two large onigiri, carrot maple leaves, a corn croquette and some flash fried korean purple potato sticks.
The onigiri faces were punched out of nori as usual. But I decided to do something different for the cheeks and put raspberry pips instead of my normal sriracha/ketchup cheeks. It gives kind of a neat 3d effect :)
