Been quite a while since I last put a face on my lunch. Must remember to do that more often, it’s really effective in brightening an otherwise dull day.
This lunch features grilled pork (liempo), steamed squash, and green beans sauteed in olive oil, salt and lots of garlic. The happy little fellow, possibly a puppy, is a fried fishcake with nori details for a face. I made a small slit on his side; it was supposed to be a hand, so he can hold the flag but it looks more like an ear, doesn’t it? Yes, yes. I’m very silly bento preparer. I don’t even know what I made. The thing is, a lot of times, I prepare the decorative parts on the fly so things just happen.
Now, say baibai to the little puppy folks! Time for lunch!
