Wanna-be bento with Spam Musubi!

This was one in the temporary home for my “bento” lunches (a 669 ml Rubbermaid container). 

It contains:
-2 SPAM musubi
-an apple rabbit
-checkerboard apple (not pictured-under the rabbit)
-fresh cut up veggies (broccoli, carrot and green bell pepper)
-(not pictured)a really thin piece of beer bread that fit in the small space between the top of the musubi and the container’s lid

This was my first experience with SPAM musubi. It was pretty easy to make- I used the can as my mold. I decided to put a smaller piece of nori (rather than one that covered the entire length) just in case I wasn’t fond of the nori/SPAM combo. That was really the only problem I had with it. It may be an acquired taste? The nori+SPAM taste was a bit different. Maybe next time I’ll use less nori?
