Friday the 13th Bento

Not sure what is up with Blogger. It seems that it ate yesterday's post, and also deleted a few entries in my contest. So if you entered in the past few days, be sure to check to see if your comments are still there.

There's still time to enter my 1 year blogiversary giveaway! Click here and leave a comment to be entered in the drawing. And the contest is open to everyone on the planet, so if you live outside of the U.S. you can enter too! (If you live on Alpha Centauri, you cannot enter, sorry.) I will stop taking entries at midnight tonight (that's 12:00am Pacific Time May 14th, 2011).

So here's my fun bento for today: Jason from the Friday the 13th movies!

In this bento: fried rice, Jason's mask (made from provolone and nori), tamagoyaki omelette slices, baby carrots, cherries from Neufeld Farms, edamame, and an apricot also from Neufeld Farms.

Here's the spring fruits bento that Blogger ate (hope you enjoyed it, Blogger!!): pork patties from my frozen stash, clove scented jasmine rice topped with slices of garlic scapes from Middleton Farms, half of an apricot from Neufeld Farms, cherries from Neufeld Farms, and edamame.

Here's the goodies you could win in honor of my 1 year blogiversary! A cute bento box with a handmade bento box felt strap (made by me!), animal shaped food picks, chopsticks, an apple shaped nori punch, and an onigiri mold.

  1. Hah, love the mask! You can use that one again in a Halloween bento. How are the cherries? Seems kind of early in the season; I don't usually buy any until June.

  2. Hi dragonmamma! I was concerned about the cherries too, but I sampled one before I bought them. They taste great!

  3. We are jealous of your cherries, over here. :) I will be looking for some at the farmer's market tomorrow.

    My housemate is making slasher movie sound effects and laughing at the picture of your Jason Bento. Brava!

  4. Eew! Spooky!! But super cool, of course :D
    Blogger lost ALL my comments, boohoo :(
