Two hearts


A very simple Valentine's bento for today because I'm getting prepared for a massive candy making spree this afternoon.  There are going to be tons of chocolates in our kitchen to bag and wrap and give away tomorrow.  This is the one and only time of year that I actually like chocolate!  Somehow I've got to quietly make, sneak and keep secret a huge Hello Kitty chocolate for A-chan.

In the bento:  A layer of rice with furikake, two small heart onigiri with provolone and nori decoration, a checkered apple, fried tofu, carrot hearts, half or a colossal black olive with a heart pick, sugar snap peas and a container of sesame carrots.

We are also going to make Valentine's cards for A-chan's class.  It's a little scary because we waited until the last minute this year.  I hope we can get them all made in time!

The checkerboard looks almost too perfect to be real! I love it! I can't wait to see pics of all your chocolate creations. :)
