Bento #58 - Musical Tortoise

Tortoise made from steamed green tea cake, lined with nori for the shell and sausage for the head, more cocktail sausages, fragrant pear cut in blossom shape, blueberry and edamame skewers

I was in quite a rush this morning while preparing this snack bento for Kimi for church.  Hence, after putting everything in, I realised that the box was a little deep for the small tortoise and I can't really capture it on pix.  So I removed the corn and turned it a little.  I did not have any time to re-arrange it.

Sigh, a little disappointed with today's haphazard bento.  Kimi currently likes turtles/tortoises so this is the inspiration for today's bento.  Hope Kimi likes it! :)

Post update : When I picked Kimi after church, he told me he was very upset as another boy wanted to grab and eat his food.  The boy touched his food and even overturned some of it.  So, Kimi only had the sausages and a bit of the corn. :(

Awww... poor Lil' Kimi *hug*... he must be very angry that someone is trying to take his fav tortoise.

Nvm, mommy can always make another tortoise for him!

So sorry to hear that another kid ruined Kimi's bento. But you can learn not to cry over spilled bentos, right? ;)

I found pork floss today! They call it Pork Fu, and I bought some at my local Asia Mart. I can't wait to try it!
