Zodiac Bento: Dragon by Demi-Plum Zodiac Bento: Dragon by Demi-Plum
Occupying the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. Unfortunately, this passion and enthusiasm can leave Dragons feeling exhausted and interestingly, unfulfilled.

The month of March is the month of the Dragon. This bento contains:

Hatching baby dragon with scattered shell (Hard boiled egg, chicken nugget head and spine, nori eyes, carrot prey, ketchup rosy cheeks)
Chicken Nuggets
Cherry Tomatoes
Carrots
Cheddar and Edamame Muffin (Recipe from Makiko Itoh's book The Just Bento Cookbook)
Rice mixed with seaweed furikake

Sorry it was so late, but better late than never right? Please Enjoy~!

Aww thank you! I talked about wanting chicken nuggets with my friend and she suggested a lying down dragon and since I didn't want to deal with food coloring (lazy :bow:) I thought use an egg for the head... but we only had chicken eggs... so I decided he was going to hatch!

The composition is great and it looks yummy too!
About how long did it take you to make it?

It didn't take too long really. I didn't precook the anything so I made it all from scratch. It probably took about 45 minutes total because the rice had to cool and set for a bit. Once all the food was cooked it didn't take long at all to put together. If you have precooked food for bento, little things like this go pretty quickly
