Hungry Little Fishies

These Bentos were inspired by the Bento Challenge blogsite. This blog eggs on the aspiring bento artist by posting a topic and inviting the public to post pictures of bento based on the theme. The topic this week was Under the Sea.


Here are my bento boxes made with this theme. Mini orange peppers stuffed with Hummus make up the hungry fishes. A small dollop of mayonaise with a dot of soy sauce make up the fish eye. Fresh Parsley plays the part of the tasty coral. The seabed is made of Cous-Cous with a rock Feta floor. Purple and yellow tomatoes are nestled in the sand. Mini green grapes from the farmer's market bubble up the Muenster sea. Muenster also is the root for the String Beans which grow up tall along the side.

Totally adorable!! I wish my daughter ate as adventurously because you have great ideas that I'd love to use.

I have the advantage of cooking for the very young. So far they have had loads of experience with fruits and veggies and limited exposure to the sweets and junk.

Now every toddler will want a food stylist.

Hey, thanks for all the bento paraphernalia. I'll have to find some alternate method for attaching the bicycle bento to my folding bicycle--maybe on the handlebar stem just under the handlebars. Then I can pick up sushi next time I off to the park on my bike.
