Bento #40, #41 and #42

I haven't had time to post/haven't had time to make bentos. Here is one from a while ago and then two from today. One for my boyfriend and one for me.

Left: apple sauce and cottage cheese
Right: raspberry vinaigrette, mixed greens, sliced carrots and ham, swiss and pickle rolls

This is the first time I tried colored rice. I think it turned out really nice. I'm excited to try other colors now. :D

From Left to Right: soy paste, pork dumplings, blue rice stars, carrots and cottage cheese

Cait Sith

Cait Sith is a cute cat character from the video game Final Fantasy 7, my favorite game. I thought he would be the best character to make a bento,until I got to the part where I had to use my food markers. I have some of the worst in the world, don't buy Wilton. So that's why one glove is green and another is black. The nori is on top of cheese, with colby cheese for the crown and apple for the cape and mouth. He has little fangs that took forever to stick. Spaghetti noodles make up his whiskers. Then to eat there's baja chicken pieces again, a checkered pear and shredded cabbage/carrot with balsamic vinaigrette in the piggy. I would be so proud of this if it weren't for the gloves.

1st Bento Inspired by Everyone Here

This is my first time posting, I've been interested in bento for a long while. I started looking more regularly at stuff in the last week or so, and when I found this group I was really inspired to actually make my first bento. It turned out really well and my mother loved it!

2 onigiri with garlic butter shrimp filling; 2 boiled eggs (with faces); raisins; pepper strips; tomato strips; soy sauce and creamy Italian dressing for various dipping.

Thanks for the inspiration everyone ^_^
