Totoro bento again! Hope you aren’t sick of Totoro yet, I know I have been making bentos based on My Neighbor Totoro rather frequently these days.
I made a variation of hiyayakko in this bento, as I saw my mom had used teriyaki sauce in place of soy sauce when she prepared this dish, and the kids loved it. So here I put nori cuttings of Chibi Totoro and the Makkuro Kurosuke on top of the chilled tofu.
Totoro is done with rice mixed with ground black sesame, and toasted spaghetti picks as whiskers.
Been very busy over the weekend preparing for Z3’s birthday, which is today. Will share more about his birthday in the next few days. Hope everyone has a good start to the week!
