Easter Bunny BentoBox

Made a light lunch bento for my husband and me.
It was really nice out today, so decided to eat at the park next to our apartment.

I just carved a slice of cheese into a bunny shape and placed between rice and seaweed.
Very easy one!

I finally started Instagram. Please follow me if you feel like it...:)
