Totoro and susuwatari for today's bentos. The fillings for the bread cups are salmon. I lightly salt salmon, steamed it and then flaked it with a fork. After that, I mixed it with some mayo before filling up the bread cups.
I also packed in broccoli, strawberries and grapes. The boccoli are hiden under the strawberries.
I made two bread cups for myself too. :)
To make the Totoro, start off by boiling a sausage.
Slice sausage in half.
Using a round cutter, make an imprint on the sausage and cut it out using knife or scissors.
Use the same cutter to cut out cheese.
Cut out ears using a pair of scissors. Make a slit on the top of the sausage so that you can insert in the ears.
Using a small round cutter or straw, cut out cheese for the eyes.
Add on pasta for whiskers, and I used those punchers shown in the picture to punch out nori.
There, completo! Another quick way to decorate your bento. :)
