These days, I have been finding it hard to resist picking up cute picks like the ones I used in today’s bento. These hat picks are just adorable and when I first saw them in one of Lia’s (Bentolicious) bentos, I knew I had to get them! After searching through the online bento stores, I finally found them on eBay from the Sakura Zakka Shop, which, unfortunately is sold out at the moment. The blue jeweled pick in the strawberry was another recent purchase of mine from the Executive Chef. They come in a set of 30 in a variety of pretty colors and jewel shapes. The best part of all of these picks is that they are washable and reusable.
The bento includes 3 mini onigiri with sesame seeds and kombu, pan fried Ahi belly, and a few fruits and veggies.
