Okay football fans, here is my Super (Bento) Bowl tribute to the Indianapolis Colts! If you use your imagination and maybe squint just a little, you will see the mascot for the Colts with his mane made of parsley flowing in the wind. The two football spam musubis also double as the bottom of the colt’s hooves as he’s galloping towards his game day victory. I also gave him a shiny red apple to eat, just in case he gets hungry. The bento also contains buffalo chicken bites with extra buffalo sauce, made with Frank’s Red Hot sauce, stored in the side container.
In truth, I am not a huge football fan but was inspired to make this bento for two reasons. First of all, Mark is cheering for the Saints. So in order to make things interesting and fun we usually pick opposite teams, with the exception of UH games in which we always cheer for our home team! Secondly and actually the main reason for the bento is that our friend, Clayton from KITV , suggested to Pikko (Adventures in Bento Making) and me that people might be interested in seeing a Colts or Saints bento. Pikko was brave and took on what I couldn’t do. I opted for the Colts thinking it would be pretty simple to make a horse, but alas it was not as easy as I had hoped. Don’t forget to check out Pikko’s bento! In any case who are you all rooting for?
