Start from today, I will post a series of Dora the Explorer and her friends bento.
As you all probably know, Dora is a young Latina girl who embarks on a trip in every episode of her TV show in order to find something or help somebody. During the show she will ask the viewers at home to help her find new ways to reach places with the help of Map. She also teaches viewers Spanish, introducing them to short words and phrases.
In this bento, I used colored pasta sheet to create Dora. Total of 6 (six) colored pasta sheets were use; brown for the base, hair, nose, and eyeballs; orange for the body; pink for the shirt; blue for her bag; white for the eye color; and red for the mouth.
The bento filling is grilled unagi (my favorite), two slices of tamagoyaki under the unagi, flower shaped sausages, broccoli chunks, corn, and heart shaped strawberries.
