Piggy Sweet Potato Bento

I had a long day at work, and my fiance was making dinner, so I was going to relax and take some time off, but I kept thinking about bento and how I haven't been making them as much as I used to because of work and other obligations, so I wanted to make a bento with dinner... But since I was so tired I wasn't going to make one until I got a wonderful idea.
I made a Piggy out of my Baked Sweet Potato!
  • 'Piggy' Baked Sweet Potato
  • Broccoli
  • Vegetable Mix (Carrots, Peppers, Water Chestnuts, Mushrooms)
  • 2/3 Pork Chop (Sliced)
 I baked my sweet potato the same way I always do, but this one was vaguely pig shaped, so I cut triangles in the skin and propped them up for the ears, and I inserted uncooked wild rice and quinoa for the eyes, eyebrows, and snout. I used a Pink Bow pick behind one ear to make my piggy more femanine, and I used a heart pick as the tail.
I added the broccoli around the sweet potato for the vegetation, and I used a piggy and grass baran to separate/hide the pork chop.

Oink! :)
