Back to bento making! I had a short bento holiday because Paige had no school this week until today. On Paige’s short break we had a lot of fun going to different places and yesterday we spent the day at the Honolulu Zoo. They had a lot of new exhibits there and I posted a few pictures of our favorite animals. The kids especially loved the petting zoo and we spent a lot of time there playing with the goats. There also was an uber friendly peacock at the snack shop who kept coming around and begging for food. The peacock, who was taller than Sean, kept coming after him for his french fries. Needless to say, Sean was terrified and now hates peacocks.
Anyway on to today’s Valentine’s Day bento. I made two love birds (well, actually chickens) and used red heart picks for their combs that I found at Ben Franklin at the Market City location. I also used my very red bento box so that I could enter this into Hapabento’s “Red” themed bento contest. I also found this great Chinese Chicken vegetable cutter. I have a whole set of all of these vintage looking Chinese cutters that my mother in-law gave to me. I’ll have to post a picture of them so you can help me figure out what some of the cutters are.
