grilled shrimp bento with pastel sweets

Grilled shrimp, basil and rice partner with pastel malted eggs, a bunny jelly and smooth, sweet green Vietnamese dessert Banh Da Lon in this Easter-influenced bento for Monday's lunch. This is the first outing for my new magewappa bento box...quite fun to work (play!) with.
I love these pink Clickity Click chopsticks!
Seen today:
Looking forward to your spring inspirations this week, bento friends!

Oh yum Jenn! I want this bento. The bunny jelly is so perfect with the other sweets. Love to see your flower pictures. Are those in your garden?

Hi megan, welcome back and thank you for brightening a rainy, foggy morning with your kind words! Wishing you a great week :)

Lia, thanks so much--would love to share it with you! Saw these flowers yesterday out for lunch with friends at a local restuarant...I loved how tiny and bright they were!

If every Monday could be like this... I wouldn't have a problem with starting the week! :) It's absolutely gorgeous.

I've had my eye on such a wooden bento box for a while now but I could *never* compile such a beautiful lunch, whatever the box!

Awwwww, such a sweet comment! But I love your bentos, too! These pastel colors did help brighten a misty, drizzly Monday...I hope you will jump in the magewappa pool, gnoegnoe--I'm in love with this new box and I'll bet you'd enjoy one, too! This one was found via J-List and was not super-spendy :)

Gorgeous bento! I love the arrangement and the shrimp look delicious! Such a cute jelly bunny too! :D

bentobird said...

Thanks so much, Lil'chan! This bento was a bit sweets heavy, but with those colors, how could I resist?

bentobird said...

Hi Lexi--really nice of you! And speaking of shrimp, your shrimp and lemon vinaigrette pasta salad looked incredible!

This looks so much like an ornament to have on your table! It seems a shame to have to eat it but I bet it was yummy! :D
