Sort Of Sushi Bento

I saw the cutest little hot dog sushi critters on Happy Little Bento earlier this week. Sheri's stuff is absolutely darling, you could spend hours looking through her bentos!

Rather than wrapping them in rice, she wrapped them in bread which sounded perfect for my two, who only like their rice warm & fresh out of the rice cooker. I showed them to Faith who not only wanted me to make them, she wanted them in her Hello Kitty box, just like the original post. Even better, we had some smoked sausage leftover from a BBQ last night, so I already had the middle part ready to go!



Faith has 4 of the hot dog sushi, 2 with face, 2 with decorations, because I got tired of cutting faces. ;o) There are some carrots & celery on that side of the box. The other side holds cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries & blueberries, plus a sweet potato mini cupcake. I froze the last of the cupcakes, but we needed one for this bento, so out of the freezer it came!



Can't leave my boy out, Ben has the exact same foods as Faith except he just has moon & stars on his sushi. He doesn't like the red lettuce anyhow so I may as well just use the carrots!

These are going with us tonight for a snack for the kids after martial arts class, they are always starving by that point!
