Bento No. 44 - City Mouse and Country Mouse

E requested for a Mouse bento from the Story book - " The City Mouse and Country Mouse."
I have been reading him night time story since he was 2. I just bought a batch of books recently. And I have finished reading all of them to him, some of them repeated not twice but many times. :)

Hmm.. think its time to replenish the books again. Last night,E requested a Country Mouse bento, so I happily obliged.

I use the newly added Mickey Mouse cutter to cut Strawberry sammies and Banana cake into 2 different colour Mouse.

So there is a White city mouse and a Brown country mouse.

I use 2 different tones of cheese as their ears and nose for contrast. Nori for eyes and whiskers.

Added skewers of grapes and some Cheese crackers. Though they look different , they both love Cheese for sure. :)

Have added this to Shannon's WFLW week 32.
