Fox and Hen bento


This is my "fox in the henhouse" bento, made for the daughter. She just loves the little quail "hatchlings". The fox I made using a star shaped onigiri mold with 2 color rice. The orange rice is made by mixing in a packet of powdered coloring/flavoring. The flavor is very subtle, this one is miso. The hens I made using my handy dandy rice cube tool, it makes perfect little cubes, I love it! I added carrot beaks and feet and the eyes are nori. The tomatoes are halved and filled with a slice of mozzarella cheese stick(string cheese is the perfect size for this) and held together with a baby chick pick. What you can't see in this picture is the mini meatballs I added this morning. I was going to add little star shaped chicken nuggets but that just seemed wrong...
