I’m taking a break from the chronological bento postings to bring you something chilling, thrilling, timely and best of all, NYUMMY! Rest assured, the thing creeping from beyond the grave is something edible and not leftovers left too long in a bento box.
Forming dirt is a bed of Crispy Corned Beef, an evil evil delight I learned about from one of my bosses, all laid on top of rice. Incidentally, cooking Crispy Corned Beef is a horrifying experience that’s only for the brave of heart—adventurers who fear nothing, not even sputtering oil—so that adds to the thrilling factor. The winning combination of corned beef and rice makes the nyummy part—I definitely can’t wait for lunch to come.
The hands creeping from the dirt and the headstone is made from singkamas (jicamas) adored with nori. Finally, the flower laid against the gravestone is made from a bit of tomato and spring onion. That’s it for Halloween Bento 2008.
Happy Halloween everyone!
