“Can´t get you out of my head” sandwich bento

February 10, 2011

Not exactly a Valentine´s day bento, but I think it fits the theme :P. In Finland there is what we call “Ystävänpäivä” (translated to “Friend´s day”), celebrated on Feb 14th. According to Wikipedia, it seems to be the second most important reason to send cards and postcards (Christmas is the 1st) in Finland, but to tell you the truth… I didn’t get much since I moved here.

Well… I remember making Valentine´s cards at my English school when I was a kid and that was it… XD

I prepared the bentos in the morning so the girls could eat them after coming home, at lunch time. (And I just noticed I don´t have heart decorative picks! How non-romantic I am…)

Contents of the boxes: whole wheat bread sandwich with sun-dried tomato cream-cheese, turkey ham and cheese. Bear made out of rye bread (taikaruis-leipä), cheese and nori, “bird” made with cheddar, a tiny carrot piece and nori. Lettuce, steamed carrots and edamame pods, cherry tomatoes, clementines and apple slices.

Ehehe, yep I noticed the bear on the left has weird eyes ^_^. It is the love ♡♥ ! :D

    I see cute pink heart picks! Is it Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori? So cute in supertiny miniature. Looks like a fun bento for the girls. Thanks for reminding me of Valentines. I have yet to make one. I guess today., if I can think of something…

    Oh! Now that you mentioned Rilakkuma and Kiiroitori I see the similarities… I got inspired by amigurumi type of bears which usually have a chick “stuck” to their heads ;). Tried to get that “fluffy” texture by using a fluted round cutter ^_^.
    I can´t wait to see what you come up for the Valentine´s! Your bento is always inspiring =).
    Thanks for the sweet comment Sheri!

    Acho que precisaria de um microscópio para fazer os detalhes do pintinho! XD
    Não imaginava que aí tem edamame! Que delícia, adoro, são viciantes! Viciantes tbm era os chocolates que abundavam nos mercados e lojas de departamento no Japão nessa época de Valentines! Um mais lindo do que outro e ao invés de comprar para dar, comprava para mim! Shame on me!!! rsss
    Desejo um feliz dia do amigo, amiga!
    Bjs e bom final de semana!

    Akemi-chan! Nossa, se eu te contar que o pintinho foi feito na segunda tentativa ^_^!
    Pois é… acho edamame em uma loja especializada japonesa, congelado e com um preço bem salgado.. Mas as meninas gostam, tento pôr nos obentos delas como “treat” :)
    E os chocolates do Valentine´s do Japao… nossa, cada coisa linda…
    Um super Feliz Dia do Amigo para você também querida!!
