Preparing a bento is not that hard if you plan ahead. I usually set aside a portion of the dinner I made the night before. In this case, ground turkey stir fry. Having fruits and vegetables in your fridge all the time is handy. I always stock up since my family loves to snack on these. If you don’t have time to prep you always have the option of using the frozen cut up vegetable or fruits available in grocery stores.
The clown onigiri is very simple to make. I just shaped the rice into a ball and decorated the face with hotdogs and nori (dried seaweed). Experiment and have fun making different expressions for your clown. My original plan was to make the onigiri clown without hair or should I say wig. I think the greens added interest and the pop of color it needed.
