The Terror of the Deep
It turned cold here all of a sudden! We're wearing long sleeves for the first time today. The cats all insist that they need to stay warm too - preferably by sitting in a pile on my lap.
In the bento: Vegetarian pastitsio (greek macaroni and meat casserole), carrot flowers, a checkerboard apple, black plum slices, steamed broccoli and a miniature corn croquette.
Her scary cuteness is made from eggsheet with nori mouth and eyes, gari cheeks and a carrot bow. The eggsheet was made using the fantastic tutorial on the Bentolicious blog. I was thrilled with how quickly I made it this morning and with how perfect it turned out!
The vegetarian pastitsio is very yummy and perfect for chilly days. My recipe for it can be found on the recipe page. For a change I decided to use aluminum foil as a divider today. It added a nice bit of metallic sheen.
