Spice Up Your Life With a Taste of Japan

*Fun Bento Box**Cute and Natural Food From California*


Star Wars Lunch Box

My husband just came back from Taiwan trip and brought me this round tin bento box.
He purchased this at a train station there.
Like Japan, it seems common(?) to buy bento at train stations and get ready for a long train ride in Taiwan.
This bento box is nice and big. Great for adult's lunch! ( I eat a lot, so I need a big lunch box.....)

I created a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader.
They are just white and black, so perfect character to make with rice and seaweed!

For a Stormtrooper, you just need to cut a piece of seaweed and make

a long strip
2 loose triangles
a big V shape
4 or more short strips
2 small and one bigger rounds

For Darth Vader, just cut a piece of nori seaweed and make 2 round holes and a triangle shape.
Wrap the seaweed around a rice ball and strips of nori seaweed to create mouth (?).

Great bento for any star wars fun like my husband!!
