Kodomo no Hi Bento

On left: somen & carrots; mochi; edamame; strawberry bits
On right: white rice; teddy gramhn; nori; furikake....
Comments: Blah just something thrown together since May 5th is Kodomo no Hi, aka "Children's Day"(post WWII) or "Boy's Day"(pre-WWII). They fly koi flags to represent strength and success so... yeah. I also put the little teddy bear in a school boy's cap and gave him a bag since that area seemed plain with just the flaggies. Another tradition of Children's Day is kashiwa-mochi(mochi w/ anko wrapped in an oak leaf) unfortunately I'm out of anko and have no leaves(though I did try using my fake divider ones only to get fed up with them) so... just the mochi, which is sweet enough without the anko for me! Maybe I should have put the snack on the side to make more room for good food though between the somen and rice I'm sure I'll be plenty full off this as is.
Prepare time: 30 min.
