Yellow Submarine bento
August 26, 2010
Today hubz and I had rice and japanese curry for dinner. It is one of my favorite foods and it always brings me very good memories from my childhood and my mother.
Anyways, my girls don´t like it :/. I hope someday they will learn to like it as much as I did when I was small.
So I made them bento. It was (almost) a mistake.. I mean, I didn´t have much in the fridge and quite nothing of vegetables. I´ll try to be better (promise) next time :D.
And let me explain the theme. Lacking inspiration, suddenly I remembered my girls singing The Beatles´ Yellow Submarine the other day. It is so funny when they sing! It goes like ♩ “wee aw liv ni na yelow Sammarin, welow sammarin, yelow sammarin”♫♪
It made a very good theme, I admit!
The contents of the box: Mixed grains rice (zakkokumai), furikake, edamame, carrots, green and red grapes, cucumber and chicken frankfurter-sausages “octopuses”. The submarine was made with nori and two types of cheese.
And do you see the gorgeous star picks and the forks (matching with this ocean theme)? I got them as a gift from a very kind and special bento friend. (Thank you!! ♥)
oh.. and don´t ask me about the bunny, I really don´t know how did it end up there ;).
