Bento2015#Apr21~Hello Kitty Fishball

Quick and easy lunch for today ^_^ I cooked fried rice and just decorate the fishball as Hello Kitty. To make it cute, I add small My Melody mug miniature to beautify the whole theme bento. Lovely right? 
 
Here is the close up Hello Kitty fishball. I cut the fishball into half and use the white part for Hello Kitty. Punch out the nori details and just add onto the fishball. Cheese for nose or you may use eggsheet. Filled up the body and ears and arm to hold the mug ^_^ Simple and quick!  By the way, the Melody miniature mug is Re-Ment toys that I bought during my Japan Trips :)
 
It's Tuesday so I don't have to prepare a lot of foods for her. This kawaii Hello Kitty fried rice surely brighten up her day! Hope  you like it too!

Bento2015#Apr20~Doll Girl Bento

Recently bought online mipad case for my 小米mipad ^_^ So today's lunch inspired by the cute doll mipad case. Pretty easy to make and just need to create two huge eyes for the doll :D

To make the doll, I mix some ketchup to the rice for the face onigiri and wrap nori as part of the hair. Make another two onigiri for the hair bun and body. The huge eyeballs make of kombu (freehand scissor cut out) and I add white rice as the inner eyes to make it sparkling :) Fill up the nori details for the rest of the eyebrows and body details. I didn't follow the exactly picture from the mipad case. Just modify it as simple as possible ^_^

For side dishes have pea sprouts, gyoza, two-toned tamagoyaki, carrots and oranges.

I hope you like today's sharing :) Have a lovely day!

Bento2015#Apr16~Baymax Hello Kitty

My daughter requested Hello Kitty pasta so instead of decorate the quail egg into Kitty-chan, I make Baymax!!! Hahaha....trying to make Baymax quail egg disguise as Hello Kitty but look weird right or can't see the difference :)
 
Here's the closer look of my Baymax Hello Kitty quail egg. Just add nori for all the details and add red ribbon as HK ^_^ Tomato Hello Kitty pasta for her lunch and extra sauce will be at another sauce container.
 
Side dishes hav pea sprouts, chicken star-shaped nuggets and grapes.

Bento2015#Apr15~Tigger Bento

Hello I'm Tigger but I don't have extra alphabet "G" for the alphabet picks =_=" So I just add it anyway since Tigger look like tiger right? Haha.... 
This is my first attempt making Tigger kyaraben. Quite tricky while shaping the rice but I think I get a "PASS" for it ^_^  

To make Tigger, I mix the rice with tomato ketchup and start to shape. First, I make the white face then add the nose on top. Slowly add the orange rice on top to create Tigger. Freehand scissor cut out the black stripes and other details. 
After done Tigger face, I put the face first then add the body and arms. Next, fill up the holes with pea sprouts and other side dishes at the side.
 
For side dishes have homecooked chicken fillets, pan-fried potato Tiggers and ketchup scramble eggs. I also use Tigger cookie cutter to cut the apple since the potato Tigger not clear after pan-fried.

I hope you will like today's Tigger Bento ^_^ Normally, I will pack my son's lunch box first since is non-kyaraben :D I don't cooked other dishes but just use whatever dishes that I pack for my daughter.

Here's the simple lunch box bento for my son. I just arrange neatly onto the thermos lunch box. Looks like few more years, I'm going to pack the exactly same non-kyaraben for my daughter's bento too! Sob sob.....

Thanks for reading my blog ^_^ Have a lovely day!

Bento2015#Apr14~Little My & Moomin

Today's simple lunch I make sushi rolls. Lack of motivation to follow the sushi foodart recipe book =_=" So just create simple one for their lunch :p To make it nice, I add Little My & Moomin using cheese for decoration on top of the sushi rolls.
 
For my sushi rolls, I mix the rice with furikake, Japanese cucumber, tamagoyaki, maoyannaise and nori.
For Little My & Moomin, I freehand scissor cut out nori for all the details and trim out the cheese with toothpick.
*Note: To cut out the nori, I use trim eyebrow scissor. You may view the tools HERE.
 
Along the side dish just cut out pan-fried chicken fillet (I use chicken breast marinate with soy sauce, cornflour then pan-fried it by dipping the egg wash & breadcrumbs)
Some grapes (my girl never get bored with grapes and my son prefers oranges) I pack sushi rolls for my son as well except with decoration :D

Hope you like today's sharing ^_^ Have a lovely day!

Bento2015#Apr13~My Melody Mashed Potato

Kids request for fried rice so I cooked tomato egg fried rice ^_^ To create a theme, I use mashed potato to make My Melody as decoration since I'm using the Melody lunch box. I prefer to follow the lunch box character unless the box is plain then I will create other theme.
 
Arrange the tomato egg fried rice into the box first then add My Melody mashed potato on top. I mix some sakura denbu and little bit of ketchup together with the mashed potato to create pink touch. Shape it by using hands (wet hands) then add the original mashed potato as face. Punch out some nori eyes/mouth and cheese for nose. Lastly, I add some broccoli to brings out My Melody more stunning ^_^ 
 
For side dishes have broccoli, meat patties and oranges.
 
I hope you like this My Melody bento and pretty easy to create simple cartoon by using mashed potato. Have fun making when you've potatoes at home :)

Bento2015#Apr02~Easter Kumamon

This will be final Easter Bento because next week my kids will have their mid term school holidays break and that will be my bento break as well ^_^ I'm counting the days..... hahaha.... not to said I dislike to make bento but I just want to have a longer sleep without morning call at 5.45am =_="

Back to my easter bento, I make Kumamon Bento with mama chick and baby chicks for easter theme. 
To create Kumamon, just add rice onto the box and I sprinkle some furikake on top before I cover with seaweed. I use Kumamon cutter to cut out the cheese details and finish up with ketchup for cheeks ^_^ Also make two ears for Kumamon by freely using toothpick to cut out the cheese.
 
Mama chick make of scallop fishcake, nori and carrot. 
Baby chick make of tamagoyaki, nori and carrot.
Some prawns and pea sprout for side dishes.
Grapes as dessert.
 
Here is the Kumamon cutter set that I've use. Bought it during my Japan trips ^_^
