Brave Merida Bento


THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS
As soon as I saw these crinkle cut sweet potatoes, I knew I wanted to make a Merida bento.  I baked the potatoes with a touch of olive oil and sea salt on 475 degrees for 20 minutes (flipping them at the 10 minute mark), making delicious and beautiful sweet potato fries.  I love how they look as Merida's hair!  I used black olives, provolone and nori for the bears and hand-made the bow and arrow out of flat toothpicks and washi tape.  
 What's in the Box?
Baked Sweet Potato Fries, Steamed Rice (colored with carrot juice)
Provolone & Nori accents
Butter Lettuce, Grape Tomatoes, Baby Cucumber, Snap Peas, Bell Peppers
Black Olives w/ Provolone & Nori accents
Raw Corn, Black Olives
Strawberries, Blackberries & Blueberries
