The Wizard of Oz

Today, Oz the Great and Powerful is playing in theaters.  The bento bloggers and friends are doing a Wizard of Oz themed blog hop to celebrate.  This is day # 2 of the hop.  Come along and follow the yellow brick road.....


Left compartment:  Orange pepper tornado, cucumber witch riding on an asparagus broom.  They are on a bed of leftover white rice mixed with a little corn "debris".  To cut the cucumber shape I used my small pumpkin carver.  It has been a while since I have used it, but it is a great bento tool!  I used the skin of the cucumber to make the witch's clothes and hat.

The witch was resurrected from my Halloween blog hop post.

Top right:  Blue corn tortilla and turkey sandwich on top of green and black olives.

Bottom right:  Blackberries.


Now follow the yellow brick road and hop on over to Bento Monsters and see the awesome bento that Ming has created!

  19. Cute lunches. I miss eating bentos but I don't have anywhere near me that sells them and I don't like spending so much time preparing food. Too busy. I prefer to spend that much time on dinner if anything.

    I didn't recognize the witch at first. I was caught by the red shoes. Now that I see it, I'm smiling. If I were eating that lunch I would leave the cucumber carving till the last bite.
