Bento Project: Valentine's Day Bento!
I decided to enter the CasaBento Valentine's Day Contest. The contest is to make a beautiful Valentine's Day bento and submit a picture to be voted on for a prize. Submissions by Feb 6th. The best will be put up on Facebook and voted on until Feb 10th. I decided to make a Be Mine Valentine that is both tasty and beautiful.
For the main dish I have Dubu buckim yangnyumjang (Korean spicy tofu dish from Maangchi.com). I've made it before so I knew it would be good. I also cut the tofu into heart shapes, so cute! I wrote out be mine with some yummy cheese and put it all on top of some couscous I dyed pink. For the sweet part of the bento I cut some apples to look like pink Rabbits and cut some marshmallows to look like hearts. I also have two MeltyKiss chocolates in the pink cup. Some heart sprinkles top it off.
