Fruit in a Bear
Isn't it cute? The box, I mean. Pizza day was the best excuse to pop out my new bento box and give it a whirl. It's the Kuma White Donburi from Bento and Co. Dude, it's a deep bento box! Those aren't orange wedges they are half slices. Half a black plum fit alongside the oranges. Some might call the lemon wedges citrus overload with all the orange slices, but I wanted something to fit perfectly in that tight curve. The side container holds a ton of blueberries and pomegranate seeds.
In the bento: (Hmmm, I think I've already told you everything, but oh well!) Lemon wedges, half orange slices, black plum chunks, blueberries and pomegranate seeds. There are a few provolone cheese stars and a strawberry divider because it went with the fruit theme and made things cuter.
You may have noticed that the blueberry/pomegranate seeds combination has been going on all week. That is usually part of how I plan my bentos - A-chan chooses two fruits and then I combine them in different ways all week. Only...there aren't a lot of ways to combine blueberries and pomegranate seeds. They do look pretty jumbled together in a container, though!
Happy Friday everyone!
