Mr. Bento - Halloween 2007

I had to have some unusual things in my Mr. Bento, Halloween, Wednesday, October 31, 2007:
  • I went with black 'n' orange in my onigiri, making a rice ball of black rice with smoked salmon, onion and creamcheese. (See the rest here.)
  • The hardboiled egg with it is kind of spooky.
  • The pudding has a pumpkin seed smile (and a hazelnut nose).
  • A couple of rats have invaded my salad.
  • Of course, there is a candy dish, with nuts to make it healthier.

Monday, I didn't take my lunch in my Mr. Bento. I'd left it in my carpool Friday afternoon, so I took a regular bento box on Monday. I felt lost.
