Spring Break!

This week is Spring Break for A-chan and my schedule is way out of whack!  But it's going to be a great week filled with fun and adventure.  Plus the sun is finally shining again and we're watching bumble bees fly around the yard.  The kitten is convinced that she can catch one!

These are the same bento.  I decided to take a 'before' picture and another after the cute faces were added. Which one do you like better?  Personally I prefer the top picture, it's more elegant.  A-chan prefers the bottom, of course!

In the bento: Rice with black sesame seeds, half of a cherry tomato, fried tofu, baby corn, baby carrots, a cucumber rose and some grapes.

The happy faces were cut from provolone cheese, the hair cut from nori, the eyes from cucumber peel and the mouths from grape peel.  It's always fun to experiment with new materials for decoration!

I hope that everyone is having a fantastic week!  I'll post about our zoo trip tomorrow :)

I prefer the top picture without the faces. It looks more sophisticated.
