The weather these days is ridiculously hot. And two hours later it can turn into a thunderstorm. (which was what happened this afternoon.)
I made this swimming bento a couple of days ago, since it was so hot and all I wanted to do was to jump into the pool. This image is based on some Sanrio plushies, where Hello Kitty and Tuxedo Sam are swimming with their duckie floats.
The rice for the duckie floats was mixed with yellow deco-furi to create the yellow colour. Tuxedo Sam was made with rice coloured with water extracted from butterfly pea-flowers.
Sides include a hard boiled egg, broccoli, strawberries and honey roasted chicken. That is a perennial family favourite, I always marinate enough for a few days’ consumption and freeze the portions accordingly.
