Shoyu (Soy Sauce) Bear Egg

This bento features another hard boiled egg.  But rather than using an egg mold to decorate it, I dipped it in shoyu.  This idea was inspired by Sheri, a fellow bento blogger.  I rolled the hard boiled egg in shoyu and then let it sit for a bit in a bowl as it dried.  I don’t think I let it sit in the shoyu long enough as my brown bear is not as dark as Sheri’s.  But I love the idea!  The ears are part of another hard boiled egg that I attached with tiny hard spaghetti noodles. I read in a bento book that they will get hard as the day goes on. But I’m not 100% sure. I’ll have to ask Ms. Little Bubbles if they were soft when she ate them.

BTW, the strawberries were recently picked when we went to an organic strawberry field.  They are so ripe and juicy!!  Love them!

    So cute! Love the contrasting ears too 🙂 Yes, you have to soak the egg for quite awhile to get the dark color, or heat in a pot. I bet she loved it.

      I didn’t realize how dark your bear was until I got ready to do this post. I guess I’ll soak it longer. 🙂 She did love it. She was surprised to hear there were spaghetti in the ears! LOL! Thanks for the idea.
