The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Mae's Hello Kitty bento box arrived on Friday of last week and I couldn't wait to make her first official bento in it. I was inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar (after I saw an adorable bento on another site) because Mae IS a caterpillar at preschool, and this is one of her favorite books. They also read this book at school a lot so her little friends will recognize it too. Apparently they all loved the elephants of last week. I'm so proud! On a bed of rice is green and red pepper, goat cheese and nori. In the side are 2 Pokemon skewers of marinated tofu, dried sugar snap peas, 2 mini cookies and a sesame bar (which I later removed after sampling one and realizing these had peanuts! No nuts at the J). I hope she likes it! And I hope I put enough rice in that it won't get too smooshed. We'll see!! Hee!! I'm not sure that this is really enough food for her though, so I'll pack a hefty snack for after school. In the future, I may stick with onigiri, which packs more of a punch. Still, it's cute anyway!
