What puppy doesn't deserve a little bling? I picked up the gold colored sugar crystals a while back and have been itching to use them. They do rather perk up the puppy's collar, I think. A-chan's reaction was precious. "Mommy, where did you get the gold?" There was almost a reverent echo to the last word.
In the bento: Steamed rice with a puppy on top, fried tofu, carrot ribbons in a heart shaped container, sugar snap peas and a halved strawberry on heart picks.
The puppy was cut from soy turkey slices using my food scissors. Her collar was cut from provolone cheese, as was the spot around her eye. The facial features and collar stars were punched from nori using three different punches. A carrot flower with provolone and sugar dot center completed the absolute cuteness.
Our kitty is recovering perfectly! He is back to his normal self and doing all the kitty things that he should. Thank you all so much for the well wishes for him. I am so grateful to the vet who pulled off the miracle surgery!
