For our Doctor Who blog hop this year, I decided to make an Ood bento! If you aren't familiar with the Ood, they first appeared on Doctor Who in 2006 in an episode called "The Impossible Planet"You can see what they look like and read more about them here.
Here's my version of an Ood, turned into ... food! ( you knew I had to say that, didn't you?)
This bento has a foundation of Pasta Leggero, with a side of steamed broccoli, green and waxed beans, carrots, and beets.
Mister Ood is made of polish sausage, spaghetti, nori for the body, and goat cheese for his hand-held "orb". Here's how I made his head:
I pushed dry spaghetti into a piece of polish sausage. Then I dropped it into boiling water ( I made two of them in case one failed) until the spaghetti was cooked through.
I added red bell pepper pieces for his eyes, nori for his body, and cheese for his hand.
This is one of the weirdest food creations I've made ( well, next to Admiral Ackbar) but it turned out as well as can be expected if you're planning on eating an Ood for lunch, I suppose :)
