Stray Bento

This bento was what I took to work on Tuesday, actually. Yesterday I took potato soup (delish!) and today I am taking spaghetti.

Bento #48:

  • Cat onigiri with clove eyes
  • ham slices
  • almonds
  • kiwi
  • lemon sections
I ended up using some of the lemon to squeeze on my rice, to give it some flavor.

The cat was mistaken by one of my co-workers for a snowman, and she congratulated me on being so seasonal. That would have been a good idea, hmm? Another co-worker chimed in and said it would look more like a cat if it had whiskers. A month ago they would have been really impressed by my little lunch. A few months later, everyone's a critic.

Hahaha I totally agree- in the beginning everyone was like "WOW you made that?" etc. and just blown away by my lunch and I was always like, it didn't take that much time, really, and now I get "I'm not impressed with the choices you made on what to put in there. There's no connecting theme!" I know they're just teasing but still... if I'm in a bad mood, I may just punch him in the head one day :)

Your bento just gave me an idea for my kids lunch tomorrow, using the ham. Thanks mer.

Inspired - Glad to have given you an idea. :0)

Ooo dear! I thought it was a bear! Which would be easier to eat I wonder, a bear or a cat?
