i think this bento turned out rather pretty. but, unfortunately, apparently, not very filling. a little bit closer now. in the top box we've got a classic applebee's style asian salad. iceberg lettuce, mandarin orange slices, water chestnuts, topped with sesame seeds and carrot flowers. nestled around the sides are some steamed snow peas. the bottom box is lined with nori. on the right is sushi rice topped with furikake and carrot flowers. on the left are some baked chicken nuggets. i put some barbeque sauce for the nuggets in a plastic pig. this was a mistake. apparently those are only for non-viscous liquids like soy sauce and vinegar. also lettuce is not very filling. was it socrates or alanis morissette who said, "you live, you learn".
