My sister sent me this↓ bento picture a couple years ago.. Sexy bento for her husband lol !
I thought this would be a great bento for Valentine's day!
Topping of your choice ( I used seasoned salmon)
Nori seaweed (eyes)
Ketchup (lips, cheeks)
Pickled plum aka Ume (nipples) : My sister used ham instead
1. Make rice balls. 2 big ones and 1 smaller one. Put rice in plastic wrap and push down the middle a little and place the topping there as shown in the picture.
2. Boil pasta. I wanted to fill the open space with tomato salad later, so I seasoned the pasta with salt, balsamic vinegar and olive oil to make the pasta salad.
Add the pasta on a smaller rice ball to create hair.
