Being the week before Easter I thought it would be fun to do a special little bento. I got the idea for the Rilakkuma Inari from Anna The Red. She's a marvelous bento and plushie maker. If you would like a tutorial on how to make these little guys you can find it here: [link]. They are easy to make so give em a try! This bento contains: 2 Inarizushi (1 Rilakkuma, 1 Regular) Mochiko Chicken (With A Little Decorative Bone Pick) 1/2 Small Sweet Pepper Cut Into Rings Gari (Pickled Ginger) Sliced Strawberry Cilantro Leaves (Decoration)
*Here's a little side note, just to prove that bento makers practice what they preach I'm going to list the calories for this bento below. This is to help show that bento are not just cute or delicious they are also healthy and very reasonable in calories. Please Enjoy!
