I made this photography themed meal for my friend Mark. He requested the theme and it was actually one I never did before! I represented photography of nature and people.
Container: Book Bento Box
Contents: Photographer – roasted garlic mashed potatoes cooled then cut with a cookie cutter, Photographer’s Eye – spinach, Camera – cucumber with carrot details attached with a piece of angel hair pasta, Butterflies – rainbow carrots cut with a mini cutter, lentils cooked in vegetable broth
Container: ELB Snack Boxes
