Giraffe Bento

I honestly didn't know what I was going to do for today's bento.  I wanted to use turmeric in the rice, so I knew it was going to be yellow.  I used a little too much, so I got a very dark yellow.  When I saw the color, two images popped into my head - a school bus and a giraffe.  I thought the giraffe might look cuter with the items I had on hand, so I hand formed one with plastic wrap to see what it would look like.  I was happy with the result, so I stuck with the giraffe!
Giraffe - Rice (dyed with Turmeric) w/ Nori, Enoki Mushroom & Pre-made Wilton Eye
Dark Red Kidney Beans, Baby Corn
Lettuce, Steamed Asparagus, Tomatoes, Carrots, Kohlrabi, Bell Peppers
