Easter Bento Bunnies

9 Apr

Wow, is it April already?  Easter kinda caught me by surprise.  I didn’t plan on making a bunny bento for Ms. Little Bubbles, but I was inspired by Happy Little Bento.  Sheri is talented and her bunny made me wake up to Easter and think “hey, I got the stuff to make that!” This bunny is totally inspired by Sheri!  The bunny is made from swiss cheese and the flower is made from a fruit rollup.  Totally cute and simple.

This is my second Easter bunny.  This was a last minute bunny.  I woke and remembered that I had a bunny mold that came with a bento kit my husband bought for me.  I molded my hapa rice into a bunny, made deli meat features and then nori eyes and nose.  Under the cheese is taco meat, which we used to make taco rice the night before.  Yes, I said taco rice.  To me, taco rice is the epitome of Asian Americans eating anything and everything with rice.  I have to admit, I eat rice with almost everything.  I think most people that I grew up with do.  Eggs… YEP.  Spaghetti… YEP YEP.  Taco salad… YEP!  My husband and I first discovered taco rice in Okinawa.  I have to admit, I thought it was WEIRD. And it kinda is.  But once you get past the weirdness, it’s actually very good.  LOL.  (You’ll have to comment if you think I’m crazy! LOL!)  Here is a picture of taco rice from In The Wabe
