Last night we had spaghetti with Italian sausage for dinner so I cut off a piece of the sausage, halved it, scored it, cooked it and saved it for my lunch today. As I was cooking I had my water boiling and I dumped all the spaghetti in the package into the pot. The moment it hit the water I had an oh-no moment. I thought, "Dummy, you use spaghetti pieces to secure some things in your bento. Too late now and hopefully I will not require any until I get to the store again." But as it turned out I needed a piece today for the ladybugs head. I had to use a toothpick. sigh
I had purchased some egg furikake at Asian Mart the other day and thought I would try it. So I made two origiri mixed with the furikake. This is the first time I have tried anything like this and I have to admit the smell wasn't too my liking when I mixed it up. But I am a daring person and I will give it a taste test. Sometimes things taste better after the flavors have mellowed and blended. So we'll see.
Also in this box I have a Babybel made into a ladybug, red beans, sweet mini pepper (those are so tasty!), purple potatoes and carrots cut into butterfly shapes, grapes, grape tomatoes, broccoli and a couple pieces of blueberries. One blueberry is pinned on for the ladybugs head, with a toothpick.
