In this bento: pink rice in the shape of Pig with nori eyes and nostrils. Also radishes from Crescent Moon Farms, baby carrots, steamed broccoli, and pork patties. In the upper compartment: a mandarin orange from Twin Peaks, walnuts from the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market, and toffee made by my friends Kerry and Danielle.
Here's me and Stephan with the Pig bento. I think I like Pig the best because he is so gullible and innocent. I am pretty gullible, but not so innocent. Also, Pig tends to see the silver lining and I try to do that too.
Mmmmm, tastes like Pig ear. :)
Thanks to everyone for entering my 100th Bento contest! You still have a day to enter, and I love reading all of your suggestions for winter bentos. Now I have lots of ideas for when I get stuck. :)
Also, if you are on Facebook, CasaBento is hosting a best holiday bento contest. A few of us are finalists and would love your vote. Sheri of Happy Little Bento, Crystal of Adventures In Bentomaking, and me, Michelle of Sonoma Bento. Head to CasaBento's Facebook page to vote for your favorites.
its a cute pig bento :)ReplyDelete
Wow, it must be terrific for you since the creator of the character you made on your bento saw it, congrats! :DReplyDelete
You did a great job of duplicating Pig by hand; I assume there is no store-bought mold.ReplyDelete
Maybe you're trying to be anonymous here, but I gotta ask; are you an on-the-air personality? (I'm wondering if I ever listen to you without knowing it!)
We love Pearls! Your bento looks greatReplyDelete
Nice bento! Good luck for our contest. We will publish the results in less than 12 hours...ReplyDelete
So cool! I love how you see the creative potential of bento, SB :D Happy Holidays!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sysyl! It was delish, too! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Tatabonita! I was so happy that he liked it! He even took a picture of it with his phone and made it his phone's wallpaper. Eeeeee!ReplyDelete
Thanks dragonmamma! I did Pig by hand, luckily he is not too complicated.ReplyDelete
I am on air, I do afternoon news breaks on KSRO 1350AM. I also have a show: Mondays with Michelle from 5:30pm to 6pm on Mondays. And I am Cricket on Froggy. :)
Thanks so much Sonja! It's the funniest comic strip in the paper!ReplyDelete
Hee hee, thanks Bentobird! I was really hoping that John Lasseter of Pixar would make his annual visit to the station so I could make a Toy Story bento, but he didn't have time this year. I may still make one anyway!ReplyDelete
Is the Mondays with Michelle on KSRO or Froggy? I have to admit I don't usually listen to either of those; I'm a "River" listener. I'll have to give you a listen on Monday!ReplyDelete
But, heck, it's all Maverick Media, right? I was just over there a couple of weeks ago picking up a prize I won.
Hi dragonmamma! Mondays with Michelle is on KSRO. Our studios are at the same end of the hall as The River. This next week I'll be on 10am to noon each day cause we are getting rid of Imus and starting a new show. I need fill in topics, wanna come in and talk bento?? :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, but I really don't know much about bento, other than what I see on your blog! (My attempts are pale comparisons to yours.) Now, if you ever want to talk about strength training for women...it's hard to get me to shut up about that!ReplyDelete
