Monokuro Boo Bento

Monokuro Boo-literally "monochromatic pig" This is daughter's favorite San-X character. The white pig is a California roll, and the black pig is a cucumber roll. There is a little crab & avocado salad up in the corner, and steamed veggies and strawberries.

Hi Ariel,
Thanks so much!
I just made a roll by hand(no sushi mat) then shaped it into the pigs. I wrapped the nori around it after I shaped it. They are actually pretty easy to make :)

Wow!! You say it so easily! You really inspire me to try all that great stuff. I'm gonna try making a pig as well...!

I've a Q. When you cut all the fruits and kiwi, what do you do with your scraps? I"m sure you get scraps, right?

Hi Ariel,
Sure I get scraps, often times I will just stick them underneath the pretty ones..and alot of times I will just snack on them as I make it, especially if it's fruit. I love fruit :) Sometimes I just save then for other things, throw them into the blender for smoothies, or freeze them or toss them into my cereal. The only thing I was pitching really was bread crusts, but now that I've seen a few birds in the yard, I toss them out there.
