Beyond the Stars
Getting back into the groove of things after spending the end of last week with A-chan's class at camp. With my infinite bento wisdom I deduced that a simple bento might be best to start out the week. Space themed bentos are always fun because they give me excuses to make up little alien creatures. I love the little pea alien dude today!
In the bento: Rice with a tofu soboro asteroid belt, carrot rocket and planets, green pea rocket trail, a huge strawberry, steamed broccoli, apple with star cut outs, carrot sticks and an alien pea dude.
Black sesame seeds provide details for the rocket ship and the alien's eyes. Alien pea dude's mouth was cut from carrot. Instead of my regular background of curly leaf lettuce, I used baby spinach leaves to cushion the fruit.
