I have been lurking in a lot of Bento sites lately and armed with all my new found ideas I went to get some of the ingredients just solely for Bento packing! I know I am nutz! 😛
Over the week, I purchase some chicken cocktails (I don’t normally like giving Darrius processed food) just so I can experiment on some of the designs.
I have some ‘mantou’ in the freezer so decided to use one of them as the base so I don’t need other carbo food like rice or bread (afterall, I did not cook rice and I ran out of bread).
In this Bento, you can see chicken cocktails in shapes of octopus, crabs and anemones sitting on chocolate flavored mantou as sea water and cauliflower as corals. Their eyes are cut out from nori and mouths from carrot. Snow peas acted as seaweeds with tiny flowers and fish shaped carrot. Some grapes as dessert.
