Okay. I admit it. The reason why I haven’t updated the past two weeks much? Well, partly because of work—we’ve been pretty swamped so I’ve no time to prepare bento in the mornings—and partly because the little time I have left, I spend playing with dolls. I’m currently so obsessed with this Japanese doll called Pullip that I have gone cuckoo and made REAL food bento for her.
Yes folks, real food. For a doll. Curious? That’s a sakura denbu onigiri, a side of pickled ginger, carrot sticks (doll-sized of course), a raisin, and some quail egg wedges. When you think about it, it’s probably the World’s Smallest real obento. Real food, all in my tiniest Polka Dot Sauce container. That’s roughly an inch on the long side. Beat that, Re-Ment1!
Why go nuts? Look at her! How can you resist preparing treats for a darling little cutie like her? Her name’s Aki, by the way, and she blogs at This Doll’s Life. She insists that I give her blog lots of link love. She also insists that I invite you all to visit her blog. Heaven help me, I’m being enslaved by a little plastic doll.
Now you understand why I haven’t been updating much? Surely hope this week spells something different though and gets me back on the obento track. Too much fastfood, bad for
fat kitchen cows.
