Bento#Sept27~Cutezcute Baby Night Owl Bento

Feeling excited when I get to know Cutezcute new released bento boxes! There are three designed and I love all three but at the moment I shall order the pink coloured Baby Night Owl first ^_^ The answer very obvious why I choose Baby Night Owl :p The other two bento were Baby Cool Penguin & Baby Ninja Panda. Feel free to browse All Things For Sale for more details. Okay, back to my daughter's dinner bento! She been asking me when can she use this Baby Night Owl bento box? Looks like she like it too so today's dinner I made pink owl onigiri for her ^_^
My pink owl onigiri ideas comes from Cutezcute Baby Night Owl Bento box ^_^ Isn't the baby owl bento box adorable? Sweet pink colour and really cute owl designed! Not only designed for bento use but also can be home meal bowls. Awesome right?
Simple dishes that I cooked for my family so I arranged it to the bento box. If you are packing for school bento then the above picture for fruits section bowl will be the cover so please don't add any foods ^_^ I add fruits due to having dinner meals at home :) To made pink owl, I add pink furikake mixed with rice then take cling wrap to shape it. Finished up with nori and cheese for the details. The yellow part can be replace as eggsheet for better result! Well, I hope you will like today's dinner bento post! Happy Friday!

Bento#Sept25~Pooh with honey bees

Bought some quail eggs so I thought of making honey bees! To match with the honey bees so I thought of Winnie the Pooh ^_^ This ideas seem quite famous and pretty much can see it from Pinterest or Bloggers. Sorry about the photo lighting due to indoor and my kitchen need extra lights to brighten up! I don't have time to adjust my light even though saw the reflection of my eggsheet =_=" Oh well, as long the looks like Winnie the Pooh will do ^_^ 
Yellow quail egg: Peel the hard boiled quail eggs then soak into water mixed with turmeric. I stirred it every 10 minutes.
Honey Bees: Cut nori strips and punch nori for the face features.
Spinach, carrot salad with white sesame recipe that I follow Hippomum's book.
Grapes, blueberry and sausage cut into heart shape .
What's inside the Pooh?? I reheat the leftover rice and mixed with furikake. Then cover it with eggsheet and freehand scissor cut out the nori for Pooh face features ^_^ Lastly, I add ketchup for Pooh cheeks as well as the honey bees cheeks!
This is for my son's lunch bento. I wanted to make another Pooh but he doesn't like it =_=" So I just add "BEST WISHES" for him and he likes puppy so I punch out puppy nori for the quail eggs ^_^ Well, I hope you will like today's bento post and hope to hear from you at the comments below or may be can just shared it! Thank you so much XOXO

Bento#Sept24~Panda Onigiri Bento

Made a quick lunch bento using Panda Sushi Nori cutter. Due to the bento box small so I made two small triangle sizes onigiri and wrap with nori. My panda onigiri didn't look as same as the picture demo box but still passed and kawaii! Haha...
Panda onigiri : Rice mixed with sushi vinegar then used triangle rice mould to shape and wrap nori.
Minced sweet pork
Panda fishcake
Broccoli and carrots
Grapes and blueberies
I managed to take a picture of my son's bento since today's lunch pretty easy and quick! Whatever dishes I designed for my daughter, my son has the same but just arranged it neatly for him. To add the balance cut out panda nori need to asked his permission =_=" If he said no, normally he will eat that balance nori straight away before I packed it! 
Well, I hope you like today's lunch bento post ^_^ Have a nice Tuesday!

Bento#Sept23~Honey Bee with Happy Flower Bento

~Honey Bees Bento~
Today's lunch bento theme will be Honey Bee with Happy Flower Bento ^_^ I cooked egg fried rice from leftover rice. And boiled the quail eggs for decoration as flower! This is quite a simple bento lunch, just need to arrange the food for this theme.
Honey bee head cut out from cheese using circle cutter and body freely cut out using toothpick. Punch out nori for the face and scissor cut out the strips for bee body. Cucumber as leaves. Sausages for flower petals and quail egg as flower. Below picture will be the closer look of the Happy Flower!
Happy Flower Bento for my son ^_^ Both bento have the same flowers but my girl gets huge Honey Bees! I'm glad that my 12th years old son allowed me to add the flower face features ^_^ But the bee picks & flower picks after photo takings he removed it  =_=" Oh long he brings homecooked bento to school I'm happy with it!
I hope you will like both of my bentos ^_^ Happy Monday!! Cheers!
