Chinese New Year is nearing and I wanted do a festive theme for Tz lunch box today. With only an hour or so to prepare, came up with the idea of Shisa ( a lion-like symbol of Okinawa ) from the recent holiday I had in Okinawa as my main character. Didn’t manage to finish decorating the bento idea I had in mind but that’s how much I can do in 60 mins.
Rice: mixed with steamed shredded codfish, ham, cauliflower & tamago furikake
Shisa: baked pumpkin , ham, fish cake & nori for face; carrots & nori for beard
firecracker: japanese crab sticks & nori
