Totoro Bento

totoro bento before, originally uploaded by Mollybot.

These are Totoro Bento, talented and lovely Daughter made.

Totoro is made out of white rice and rice mixed with ground black sesame seeds. His details are made out of cheese and seaweed. He is on top of Soboro (ground meat seasoned with soysauce and sugar) mini totoro is a hardboiled egg with cheese and sesame seed eyes.
There is also greenbeans wrapped w/ bacon, ladybug-cherry tomato and snow-pea grass.

On the other side is cucumber and carrot tulips on top of Japanese style potato salad. Apples cut like rabbits and black berries. (one is supposed to look like a soot sprite)

Japanese Moms go crazy making these types of lunches for their children.
Totoro has to be my most favorite movie of all time but anything by Studio Ghibli is just fine by me !

hungry . . . parsnip
music. . . ost Totoro


  1. Edible art, how divine. Though I would have gone crazy if I'd had to make that type of lunch for my child!
