Terrarium Bento

This is my Earth Day submission for Bento of the Week at Bento Blog Network.

I started planning this about a month ago when the theme was announced. I was happy when my husband came home with this container. His grandma packed macaroons in it for his birthday.

I had a lot of fun planning and creating this terrarium lunch. I admit that I thought more about looks than taste when designing this bento. But it tasted great!

Soil: wild rice
Toadstools: radishes
Bench: carrot
White stones under bench: Parmesan cheese
Rocks: pine nuts around pond
Stepping Stones: almond slivers
Duck: dried apricot
Plants: wilted spinach, micro greens, sugar snap peas, asparagus, cucumber (hidden under the rice)
Pond: blueberry vinaigrette in clear take out sauce container (I made the vinaigrette in a blender using frozen blueberries, olive oil, white wine vinegar and a little bit of sugar)
