ラブラブ Obento or Ebi in Love
It’s the 6th of January and still no snow in sight! I’ve heard that there’s a lot of snow in the mountains but here in Zurich there’s no snow at all. :snif: I just can’t become friends with the thought that there will be no snow in the city this year! It is raining heavily every day and the weather is grey and gloomy so I’m a little under the weather and as if this wasn’t enough, this morning I jammed my thumb.. rosy prospects? Anyway, my sore thumb & mood aren’t keeping me from bloggin and showing you my first Obento of this year!

I think it’s a quite freaky Bento! The shrimps (Ebi in Japanese.. hence the title of this post) are madly in love with the cute sleeping bunny and the chicken in the other tire is just doing his own thing. :ghihi: I didn’t really had much of a choice in the fridge but I’m satisfied with how it turned out. The most important component of this Bento is the fuchsia colored radish I think. Of course the shrimps, the bunny and the chicken are the main characters but what gives the Bento its final touch is the beautiful strong color and pattern of the radish. Without the radish it would look pretty clumsy I think! :eee:

The idea for the smaller tire was to make a salad and although it’s not visible and I was out of ‘real’ salad there is finely shredded and simmered cabbage with Japanese Goma dressing under the egg. Who found the mistake?!? Actually there are two but I’m pretty sure that no one will find the second.. hrhr :tongue: Please guess! If you have any questions regarding the ingredients don’t hesitate to ask please! But basicall it’s rice, peas, fishcake and radish for the big tire and cabbage, egg, sausage, an other kind of fishcake, Edamame and radish again for the upper tire.
But I know that most of you are here for something else today so if you want to know who won the Obento giveaway and who won the Kawaii giveaway and see more close-ups of my Bento, read on!
