Bento2015#Oct01~Hello Kitty Mashed Potato

Yay! Kids back to school today although the haze still bad this morning. I was at home on leave to stayed with my kids for the past two days (main job is to cook and make sure they don't just PLAY but revision). So what's for today lunch bento? I can't think of any idea but I want to try out playing with the mashed potato using the cream flower mould ^_^ (saw it at Snapdish)  

Here's the close up Hello Kitty mashed potato. Underneath is rice with some chicken floss. Honestly, this is my first attempt using the cream flower mould for the potato and is not easy compare to icing cream =_=" I took quite some time to squeeze out the mashed potato because some flower shape not nice so I redo. Freehand scissor cut out the nori details for Hello Kitty, nose make of corn and crabstick for the red bow.
For side dishes have spinach, fish balls in Hello Kitty design and gyoza.
I hope you like today's sharing bento. Have a lovely day and hope the weather will be better.

Bento2015#Sep29~Lazy Panda Bento

Due to the bad weather (haze) that no school for today and I got the free time to update my yesterday bento lunch ^_^ Not sure whenever comes to Monday, I will make some thing like lazy and sleep bento :D So Panda bento pop to up and this round I don't shape with cling wrap but I used panda rice mould instead.

A closer look of the panda and mini quail egg panda ^_^ Simply use panda rice mould to shape up the rice and finish with nori details (freehand scissor cut) So easy right by using the rice mould :D

For side dishes have pea sprouts, gyoza, crab meat claw and some grapes/oranges.

I hope you like this simple panda bento and hopefully the haze will go away! We miss the fresh air so much..... sigh....

Bento2015#Sep28~Hotel Transylvania 2 Bento

Have you watch "Hotel Transylvania 2"? My kids can't wait to watch part 2 ever since they watched Hotel Transylvania. Especially my daughter so excited and we had a great movie hang out together during the weekend as well with my family. 
So I made this bento during the weekend and took me some times to update it today :P 
Here's the closer look of Dennis & Dracula Grandpa ^_^ Aww... think back the movie scene Dennis red curly hair super cute with big round eyes :D I didn't buy the organic red yeast noodle (used to bought it) due to my kids dislike the taste or else will be perfect to create Dennis hair here. Oh well, I use carrot instead and to make Dennis/Dracula face, I mix the rice with ketchup and shape them up by covering with nori details.
*Mostly freehand scissor cut out nori details.

For side dishes have chicken katsu with mayo and some broccoli. I also added the "Happy Halloween" food pick to match the upcoming next month Halloween Day :D Am I too early?

I hope you will like this Hotel Transylvania 2 Dennis & Dracula Bento ^_^

Bento2015#Sep22~Duffy Bento

Perhaps this bento you will see it as a bear bento but actually I'm making Disney Duffy Bear ^_^ Well, still look like a bear right? Haha...

Duffy brown rice make of chicken rice (overnight chicken rice from dinner) At first, I try to shape Duffy head as onigiri but fail....the rice is oily and seem that it won't stick together firmly =_=" After I remove the cling wrap and arrange it, the rice ball slowly loosen. Argh! So I need to change ideas. 

No time to waste so I just spread the chicken rice into the bento box and add white rice balls details to make Duffy face together with nori details.

For side dishes have minced pork, cheese balls and spinach.

I hope you like this simple Duffy Bento sharing ^_^ Happy Tuesday!

Bento2015#Sep17~Sanrio Inarizushi

Let's make some Sanrio Inarizushi ^_^ I think this is my first attempt making three different Sanrio characters :p So which one you like the most among all three Sanrio? Honestly, I find My Melody face too small! Don't you think? Haha....

Here's the close up for Pom Pom Purin Inarizushi. Yellow rice make of hard boiled egg yolk mix with rice. Nori for the details and shimeji (top) for hat and I secure with toasted spaghetti.

Here's the close up for My Melody Inarizushi :) To make pink rice, I mix the rice with sakura denbu. The white face is make of fish ball and the red bow is crabstick.

Who's next? Of course is Hello Kitty ^_^ I know my daughter will tell me she likes Kitty-chan the most after she see her bento! If among all three Sanrio character I miss out Hello Kitty.... she will ask me why? Haha.... 
To make Hello Kitty is pretty easy, I just shape the rice and add two ears then finish up with nori details. Egg yolk for nose.

Since I'm using Monbento lunch box, I just fill up the extra space with some sausages, sweet peas, fishball (balance), lettuce and oranges.

I hope you like this simple Sanrio Inarizushi design ^_^ Have a great day!
