New Hello Kitty Box Bento

This is my new Hello Kitty bento box's first outing! Sautéed purple cabbage with garlic buds, ginger, slivered almonds, and chili oil fill one section, along with brown rice, teriyaki saury, asparagus, sweet potato, and avocado.
Recently, I'm discovering just how special fresh ginger is with many vegetables, and it perked up the cabbage very nicely (said Mr. Bentobird)!

The dessert section holds raspberries, fresh figs, a chocolate madeleine, and a Mozart Kugel chocolate filled with pistachio-flavored marzipan:

you've outdone yourself this time -- i think you have a career in food styling! and the box is also very cool -- more spacious than i would expect from a hello kitty box.

Aw, wonderful comments from two of my favorite bentoists! Thank you for your encouragment and on-going bento inspiration, gamene and sherimiya!

Wow - I haven't thought of Mozart marzipan in 20 something years. I used to give one to my secret love on his birthday (leave it in his mailbox). Beautiful bento, Bentobird !!!

Yum! I love red cabbage, this gives me a new recipe to try with it. Gorgeous box too, where did you find it?

Hi arkonite_babe!
Thanks for coming by! Hope you'll enjoy this red cabbage recipe! The red Hello Kitty box was purchased via J-List, http://www.jlist.com/ and I'm very happy with its design, quality and vibrant cuteness!
