Just to let you all know, the bento creations are getting a little better. I've figured a system. Rice with a package of Cinnamaroll furikake or bear/fish/elephant shaped onigiri (rice ball). Then I mix and match sausages, egg logs, hard boiled eggs (which can be pressed into the shape of a bear or rabbit), gyoza, mando, or something fried. Then for vegetables I put in soybeans, carrots (flowers or stars), or cucumbers. I throw some of the miffy fishcake in now. G thinks it tastes gross, but she wants it in her bento for the look.
We went to another dollar store and I got some cute animal shaped toothpicks and mini soy sauce bottles. I'm finding that I could spend a lot of money on these bentos. But it's so much fun!
