sneered at cuteness in bento lunches. I have had my
in the past, but I recovered quickly enough. Therefore,
I wish to make it perfectly clear that this lunch is
not cute! It's creepy! Okay?
Ahem. Here we have a hot dog
spider on a bed of rice
decorated with a kizami nori spiderweb. The legs are
separate from the body, and the eyes are sesame seeds.
Man, was this fiddly to make! how do you people who
stick nori faces on everything do it without going mad?
Then we have the seemingly-everpresent baked Japanese sweet potato
and steamed broccoli,
plus half a braeburn apple cut into slices and sorta-kind
arranged prettily, except for one triangular piece
that just didn't want to cooperate.
