Causing a Ruckus - Appa (Last Air Bender) Bento

I made this bento last October for Ruckus Magazine.  Check out the article on-line or pick up a copy at various locations in Decatur (Little Shop of Stories, Java Monkey, etc).

top: strawberries, orange, blackberries, quail eggs with carrot flowers, gouda cheese, skewered snow peas, mushroom ravioli, mini cookie

bottom: yellow cauliflower, red pepper, blackberries, shredded carrot and swiss sandwich (appa cheese accent)

Typically I would not throw such a hodge podge of food together, but I wanted to show the versatility of food that could be put into a bento meal.

Your bentos never cease to amaze me! Like a trapeze artist going for bigger and better stunts.
Keep it up!
