Lego Bento

My oldest son, Spike, is involved with a First Lego League. One day, when packing his lunch, I did up a bento.

The top bento held summer squash and sausage that I quickly sauteed. The the lego man, I colored his head yellow using turmeric, and his body red-ish brown using a bit of paprika and chili powder. It was a little darker red than I wanted, but the spices all added a nice flavor. The man is surrounded by kale, and his facial features and made for cut nori.
