Bunnies on Parade Bento

Tomorrow is the last day before my week long vacation, so I wanted to make something fun for my lunch. I bought some little 5 sectioned rolls at the grocery deli.  I broke these apart and made mini Cuban pork sandwiches by adding swiss cheese, ham, roast pork, dill pickle, and whole grain mustard.  I put three sections in my lunch and 5 in D’s.  As I was trying to figure out how best to put them in my bento, I thought this would be a great time to use the little bunny picks I bought.  Then I noticed they looked like hills, so I thought this would be a great time to use that cotton candy for the sky!

I still had a lot of room left, so I carved some trees into apple slices to make a woodsy background.  After I carved the skin, I dipped them in water that had lemon juice added so that the apples wouldn’t turn brown.  This was my first try at carving apple skins.  I did an ok job.  I think I could have done much better if I had really taken my time with it.

I added some grape tomatoes along the bottom and some edible Easter basket grass as well.  The edible grass was sort of disappointing, it looks and tastes like styrofoam.  I was hoping it had a nice sour apple taste, but it didn’t.  Next time I will just julienne some cucumber or zucchini.  I am happy with the way this one looks, but if I were to make it again I would have raised the apples up to be even with the sandwiches and the sky.

on the menu:

  • mini Cuban pork sandwiches
  • 1/2 apple, sliced
  • cotton candy
