I have decided that the exacto knife is the bento maker's Sonic Screwdriver. That thing is awesome! This morning instead of playing it safe and cutting hearts in the apple as usual, I took the adventurous route and used the exacto knife to cut the heart shapes instead. Eureka! Clean edges and no bruising means that the perfect apple carving tool is finally within my grasp. *Insert sinister laugh here*
In the bento: Miniature pancakes, a container of feta, carrot hearts, Morningstar Farms sausage links, apple, sugar snap peas, a lemon wedge, and blackberries. The little monkey container has strawberry icing inside.
The bunny face was made with nori, carrot, and provolone cheese with strawberry jelly for the cheeks. The pancakes are part of my freezer stash - Frozen miniature Eggo pancakes. They are easy to cook on early mornings but I still wish that I could make homemade pancakes. One day I will learn, but for now I won't try my hand at burning more.
