Princess Mononoke Bento

I have been a bit lax in posting the lunches I make recently don't worry my kids are eating I just haven't been taking photos!

I thought I would go back to what got me into bento in the first place a Studio Ghibli movie.

So here is a Princess Mononoke Bento.

Her mask is made from half a large tomato with cheese and Nori decorations. The Fur part is made from Tortilla and under that is a sandwich.

In the other part is Brocoli for the trees, brown beech mushrooms and carrot flowers and you may spot a couple of Kodama in the forest.

The other bowl has soup (this bento box isn't leak proof but you can send a small flask and pour into the bowl that is the lid.)

The bento box is from and comes in penguin, panda and owl designs.

If you haven't seen this movie. What are you waiting for it is wonderful historical fantasy tale.
