The bento strikes again!


Yesterday we got to hang out with the Quick clan (aka Leah, Andrew, Lilly, and Autumn) and of course Leah being the absolute dear she is brought me a present for Mama's Day. And knowing me as well as she does, got me this super cute book on charaben:

Face Food: The Visual Creativity of Japanese Bento Boxes


Well I was totally inspired to make a bento last night because of this. So I attempted a koi which I am pretty happy with how it came out. I only had flour tortillas on hand to make the body but I want to try again with white cheddar or marble jack. I wish I had time to make one everyday - this totally reminded me how much fun these are.
