Jake the Dog has some of the best advice for life. I think of it every time I look at photos of old charabens I’ve made, though it applies to pretty much any human endeavor:
In honor of Jake’s wisdom (and the awesomeness that is Adventure Time, cartoon extraordinaire), I give you the Jake the Dog bento.
I think he’s quite taken with the hot dogs and kani salad, myself.
Jake was made from turmeric/saffron sushi rice and decorated with nori and white American cheese. Besides the hot dogs and kani salad, there were steamed green beans and shiitake mushrooms, corn, and a salted tomato slice.
If you’re thinking that the sides deviated a little from our usual bento fare around here, you are correct! Because I am supremely evil, I made Jake while the kids were at school. That means that I got to pick the sides (I could eat flying fish roe with a spoon, by the way) AND I got to devour everything myself.
Don’t feel too badly for the kids, though. There are a lot more Adventure Time character to make and eat. 🙂
