As one might surmise from the picture above, my girl and I are very enthusiastic about our Scottish roots and Scottish culture. This was her lunch yesterday as we watched the vote for independence unfold. I bet you can't tell which side we were cheering for, eh? Hehe. Anyway, it was a fun lunch to make! And I have to admit that sheep faces are not as easy as I had thought. It took me three tries to make one that I was happy with.
In the bento: Underneath the Saltire flag is a PB and sugar sprinkle sandwich, there are three small Forfar bridies (two are hidden behind the sheep), a couple of Tofurky and cream cheese rolls, a checkered apple, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, a tiny cherry tomato and some mandarin orange slices.
The flag was made from blue egg sheet and provolone cheese. It was probably the easiest thing I've ever made with egg sheet! The sheep and his opinion were also cut from provolone, but his face was hand cut with scissors from a sheet of nori. Lots of lettuce cushions everything and makes sure that the flavors don't mix.
