Tz loves watching turtles at the park. We would usually bring along some bread to feed them. In this bento, I made him mommy and baby turtles with soba depicting the pond and the flower shaped fish paste balls as the bread. Other side dishes include crackling pork belly and Dry fried four season beans. Hope he enjoys his school lunch today . (∂¿<)
