Halloween Bento


Well, I thought I'd try my hand at making a Halloween bento. I had this idea for some time now and have been waiting for the chance to try it out. Tonight we had enough rice left over from dinner so I figured it was now or never. Overall I think it came out okay. They can't all be winners. My son on the other hand would disagree. He was begging me to eat it while I was taking the pictures. Funny, it's the same thing we had for dinner. I don't recall him so excited to eat then. In fact, as I'm typing I can hear him in the background slurping and saying yum. I guess everyone enjoys good packaging.

Oh, that is so great! And I'll have to remember that for the future... if they don't like dinner, make it look like something cute with a smiley face, and they'll slurp it up!

Nice to meet you.
I am a housewife who has her two daughters who live in Tokyo.
The hobby is a handcraft.
Cardboard is cut, assembled, it makes ..the box and the tray.., and it
enjoys pasting the cloth it.
Your blog was found by chance.
I will comment though it is not so good at English.
What a wonderful idea it is a box lunch and at Halloween!
Taking the shape seems to be going to dash out from the box lunch box at
any moment.

You have inspired me to make some bento lunches for my family. DH might actually eat a home lunch that way. Thanks! I think I will start with his favorite and make some gyoza and onigiri.

Love this. The soy poison is particularly brilliant.

oh, I gotta agree, the soy poison was a mad stroke of genius! I'm so totally stealing that next year!

True genius - I love the nori bats

Great stuff! I'm dying (perhaps by soy poison ;)) to make some bento boxes for my son, but since he's only 6 months, I have to content myself with looking at others' creations for now.
