rilakkuma's french bento



Today's bento was inspired by a handmade bento pick project using Rilakkuma stickers portraying RK and friends enjoying a Parisian vacation with baguettes and sweets while sporting berets...so cute!

In keeping with the Parisian theme, lunch includes a mini croissant filled with broiled mini hamburger, aioli and grape tomatoes, haricots verts with walnuts and French walnut oil. Ripe cherries plus juicy watermelon for a simple, sweet finish...


I'd like to wish my Mom a very Happy Birthday today!
