Another simple bento :)

Rob's bento for today was packed pretty quickly. 
The first tier contains fresh pineapple, carrot salad, kiwi slices cut into flowers and curry pumpkin seeds.
The second tier contains tuna salad (or tuna mayo as I've noticed many in other areas call it :), and salad w/ carrot flowers.

I also put a baggie of multigrain crackers in his bag to go with the tuna salad. 
We often have the tuna salad mixed into a leafy greens salad with cucumber and tomatoes in the summer and he always likes crackers with that, so I wanted to be sure he could eat it either mixed into the salad or just the way it is on the crackers.
Unfortuantely, I didn't have tomatoes or a cucumber to add to it for today (I do now since I sent Ahmetia to the store today :)

Last night I decided to use these star and heart shaped foil baking cups from Reynolds.  I like that they are shorter and fit into the shallower tiers of this bento box and the shallower top tier of most of my other bento boxes.

On the tuna, I simply sprinkled some black sesame seeds on top to quickly add a little visial interest without spending much more time on it. 

I'm still trying to decide what I want to do for the 50-Followers Contest; I know I want to have people submit bento photos this time, but I need to decide if I want to do a theme or what... 
Stay tuned!

I do know the prize will be the following bento box:

Prize is subject to change (just in case I decide to go up to Mitsuwa and find something different before I post the contest - lol)
