Robot Rosie bento

Robot Rosie bento, originally uploaded by texasmomof4.
When deciding to enter the Robots contest I sat and pondered who is my favorite robot and instantly Rosie from the Jetsons came to mind. In recreating Rosie I boiled rice lasagna noodles and colored them with blue food coloring. Then made a template and used a craft knife to cute the pieces out. Rosie is seating on top of jasmine rice. To the side there is fresh catfish dipped in mustard then coated with corn meal and fried to perfection, a beautiful red tomato, broccoli, carrots, grapes and fresh pineapple. I tried to keep the bento componets simple as to not compete with the details of Rosie herself.

Catfish Bento

Nothing says summer like a trip to the lake taking the kids fishing.  My active children amaze me by sitting motionless on the bank of the lake waiting patiently for the tug on the line.  In this bento we have catfish, rice onigiri with fish cheese on top, broccoli, clemetine, grapes, and a few snow peas and carrots.
