Monkey bento

Making a monkey bento was a very random idea, and Hubby even came by to ask why I was making a monkey in my bento, LOL.

The monkey was made of mashed potato that I darkened with a few drops of dark soy sauce, with mashed potato, nori and a pea for facial details. The grass and leaves were done with beans, and I added some flowers cut out from purple potatoes. The monkey’s banana is actually a sweet, and its tail made from soba.

Side dishes include fried chicken drumlets, cucumber slices, steamed kaboucha, strawberries and some hard boiled egg slices.

Here is a closer look at the monkey hanging from a tree:
