Bento2014#Sep30~Sardin Puff & Sushi Roll

Simple & less foods for every Tuesday lunch. So I baked some puff for family breakfast and packed some for their school bento lunch. I add sardin fillings for the puff. While waiting for the puff to baked in the oven, I made simple sushi roll too so that easy for her to grab & bite ^_^
Here is the close up sardin puff that I add some decoration to made a bear ^_^ Simple and quick by adding the cheese and nori for the details. Lastly add the pick bow pick since my daughter will prefer it female bear :D 
To made the sardin puff, I use ready frozen pie crust (I left it defrost at fridge and remove it this morning for making) Run out of tuna so I use sardin instead for the fillings. I also add fresh button mushroom (cut into slices) to combine with the sardin. Wrap all the fillings into ball shape then add the ears. Before bring it to the oven, coat some egg wash om top and baked it until golden brown ^_^
For sides dishes just add some Japanese sweet potato, sushi roll, sauce and kiwi fruit.

I hope you like today's sharing :) Have a blessed Tuesday!

Bento2014#Sep29~Panda Sushi

Yawn....every Monday seem hard to wake up early morning =_=" Feel like my dark circle around my eyes getting darker!! Been catching up Korean Drama lately....so today making Panda Sushi for my Monday blues...

I rolled some Panda makisushi but the mouth look not successful. I use panda sushi kit set to made this panda and I still find it hard to use or may be I need to practice :D Oh well....perhaps next round I will made another panda without using the sushi kit set (making excuses!!!) But I'm sure some of you who have this same set will do better than me!! Round of applause to you! Clap clap...
I add the panda sushi into this lunch box from Casa Bento. Space limit as well so I add two panda sushi only. To made the panda eyes & nose. I mix the rice with black sesame powder. For side dishes, I add panda chicken, yam samosa, edamame, prawn & sushi sauce at panda container.
I pack some oranges slices at another small container for her dessert (didn't take together in this photo)

Bon appetit! Hope you like today's Panda Sushi lunchbox. At the bottom post can view the Panda Makisushi Tools Kit I've used for today's bento. Happy Monday!

Bento2014#Sep25~Minions Bento

It has been quite some times have not make Minions Bento. I'm sure my daughter will likes it ^_^ While adding the Minions nori details and my daughter ask me why one of the minion looks grumpy? Looks like she still prefers beautiful happy faces :D Anyway, I told her this little fellow don't want to be eaten by you! Hahaha....
Minions made from meat patties & melted cheese on top. Before I add the cheese on top of the meat patties, I freely scissor cut out the nori and add on top of the cheese. After done cooking (I turn off the heat & let it melted) I add the Minions eyes (crabstick/nori) and hair. The yellow rice is cooked hard boiled egg yolk (half will do since not much of rice) mix the rice and I add little bit of mayonnaise (as per request). Arrange the yellow rice first, followed by the broccoli and add Minions in the middle then lastly the shimeji mushrooms.

Ta-dah.....cute little minions bento for today's lunch using Monbento Lunchbox ^_^ I also add some mini grapes at the lettuce silicone cup for her dessert. I hope this Minions Bento will brighten up your day! Happy Thursday!

Bento2014#Sep24~Domokun Bento

It's Wednesday already? Today making hungry Domokun for my daughter's bento lunchbox. I hardly use this lunchbox due to the square size and I know my girl will prefer cute lunchbox compare to this plain one ^_^ Well, after she saw Domokun this morning while I was taking photos, she said: Oh....Domokun makes me hungry mummy! Haha....so sweet to hear that even though just a simple prawn patties change into Domokun character!
Here's the close up Domokun made from prawn patties (I used airfryer for this frozen prawn patties. Yes, I didn't make it but will look for a nice recipe to make one ^_^) Add crabstick for Domokun mouth and nori for eyes. Then cut out Domokun letters using cutter. 
For side dishes have fishballs, broccoli, lotus root, tamyoyaki, mini grapes and mayonnaise at the bunny sauce container. The tamagoyaki is two tones, I mix one egg with dark sweet sauce then another egg just normal to make this two tones :)
Ta-da...meet hungry Domokun Bento for today's post. I find it funny whenever I make Domokun, it seem that Domokun looks hungry ^_^ Not sure is it due to the huge open mouth?? Hahaha.....

Bento2014#Sep23~Totoro Quail Egg

Today's lunch bento will be less food and light lunch ^_^ Yesterday my daughter requested roti canai or roti prata for her lunch bento since every Tuesday will be rush hour during her lunch break. Last minute changes to use this Totoro Two-tier Lunchbox that I bought quite some times ago during my Japan trip :p I like this lunchbox but will be tricky to design cute character due to the limited space =_=" More over she wants roti canai not rice or noodles....

Pan-fried the roti canai and I cut into few pieces to fit inside the lunchbox. To match the Totoro lunchbox, I transform the boiled quail egg (roll on palm for totoro shape) into Totoro. Wrap the quail egg with nori for black touch and add on the details. The eggs made from cheese/nori. Lastly, I add some lettuce & parsley.

As for another shorter container, I pour some sugar into small container and put below of the mini grapes.

I hope you like today's Totoro Lunchbox post. Happy Tuesday!

Bento2014#Sep22~Golden Hair Girl

As per request from my darling daughter that she wants a golden hair girl bento for her luncbox. Is always the opposite way that when you've black or dark hair tone would prefer the blonde hair. Or when you've straight hair would prefer natural curl. And my daughter loves her hair to be curly too ^_^ Sound funny but when I'm at her age also dream of it!! Hahaha....
Look at my golden hair girl bento. Do you like her eyes? How I wish my eyelashes were like so that I don't have to curl  :D For the face, I mix little bit of ketchup with rice and shape into ball. Arrange to the bento box and cover up with cooked organic carrot ramen. To made the dress, I add inari on top of the rice and decorate with red polka dots (crabstick) using straw to cut. Freehand scissor cut out nori for the face features and punch out ribbons using puncher.
For side dishes contain pea sprouts, quail egg, fishcake, chicken seaweed wrap, mini grapes and kiwi fruit.

Hope this pretty golden hair girl will brighten up your Monday Blues....

Bento2014#Sep17~Totoro Obento

Recently bought some wool felt tools set to made few kawaii characters. The first needle felting character I made was Totoro. Followed along Makkuro Kurosuke, I did made Totoro Chibi White but not yet add the eyes so can't be display together with today's bento ^_^ 

Here's the cute Totoro Needle Felting ^_^ My first attempt and I learned it from Youtube by Bubzbeauty. Click her name to view. After I get the hang of it, I just start to create the rest of the characters. Just need to be careful while poking....hehehe

Totoro made from black sesame mix with rice and shape them up using cling wrap. This time I just add the eyes food picks from AllThingsForSale or BentoUSA. So easy that I don't have to make the eyes ^_^ Totoro Chibi White made from quail egg, freehand scissor cut out nori for eyes and I missed adding the legs =_=" Next, I add toasted spaghetti (to safe time, I toasted one night before and put in ziplock bag). 

Side dishes for today's lunch bento have spinach, prawns, button mushroom and meat patties coated with breadcrumbs.

I hope you like today's Totoro Obento. Have a great Wednesday!

Bento2014#Sep15~Sleepy Hello Kitty

Yawn.... wish I can sleep a little bit longer....Today's lunch bento inspired by Hello Kitty Figurine above. I just follow the design but forgot to add Kitty-chan whiskers =_=" How could I missed that??? Oh well, still look like Hello Kitty right?

Here is the closer look of my Hello Kitty made from crabstick. I use Hello Kitty cookie cutter to cut out the face. Freehand penknife cut out the body/dress. For legs, I use straw to cut out. Nose made from egg sheet (you can use cheese as well) Instead of add the nose on top, I cut a hole using cutter then fill up with egg sheet nose. Freehand scissor cut out nori eyelashes then lastly add red food gel for cheeks. Underneath the pea sprout is rice.

Side dishes at another container fill with gyoza, shredded carrots, egg sheet (star shapes) and balance crabstick (white) as flower. After photo takings, I'll remove the Hello Kitty figurine ^_^

Sigh....I can't get enough light for photo takings indoor (dry kitchen) early morning =_=" 

Anyway, hope today's Hello Kitty theme bento will brighten up your Monday Blues.....

Line Brown made from mashed potato mix with little bit of dark sweet sauce. Shape the mashed potato into Line Brown. The normal mashed potato will be the mouth, follow by the nori details.

Bento2014#Sep10~Korilakkuma Bento

While looking for everyday bento lunchbox for next day (one night before) I saw some rice mould that I hardly use =_=" I prefer to shape it using cling wrap so seem that I've forgot about all those cute rice mould (all at my storage box). So today's theme to match my Rilakkuma bento box, I made Korilakkuma ^_^ Because my background already brown so I prefer my bear to stand out nicely. Looks cute right compare to Rilakkuma :) 

A lot of preparation on cooking side dishes so using rice mould for shaping just come in handy. I made two tone tamagoyaki and surprisingly the inner yellow part look like heart shape ^_^ If you want to know how? I'm sorry to said that I don't know how? Hahaha....guess I'm lucky! 
In this lunchbox contains pea sprout, shimeji, soba noodles, chicken drumette, tamagoyaki and mini grapes. Lastly shape Korilakkuma using the rice mould then add nori for details. Red part for ears are ketchup.

Hope you like it today's lunch bento. Happy Wednesday!

Bento2014#Sep09~Bunnies Bento

My daughter told me that reading programme still continue on every Tuesday even though is the new term =_=" She can't finished the food if I packed a lot so today's lunchbox pretty small and less food. At least she didn't skip her lunch meal ^_^ 

So what's inside the egg sheet? It's fried rice and I just add some design for my egg sheet. Sadly didn't turn out perfect.....well still cute right?
To made bunnies, I cooked the egg white first then cut out bunny using bunny cutter. Next I pour the egg at non-stick pan, make sure is low heat and I add the cut out bunnies lay on top of the egg. Looks like I add on too early so you can see some of my bunnies has egg on it. Finished up with nori details and crabstick for red bow.
For another container, I add mini oranges and pea sprouts. 

I hope you like this bunnies bento lunch. Have a nice day!

Bento2014#Sep08~Happy Mid-Autumn Miffy Bento

Today is Happy Mid-Autumn Festival ^_^ Honestly speaking my family don't celebrate or buy mooncakes for this festival :p Now my son have grown up, he prefers to watch his TV programme instead of playing lanterns with his sister last night!!! End up my poor girl didn't play cause she wants her brother to accompany instead of me =_=" 
Well, since didn't get to play and this year I hardly make Mid-Autumn Festival bento....guess this will be the only bento compare to last year :D 

Little food for today's bento since the school will have celebration. I made Miffy (quail eggs) plays lantern (kamaboko). Underneath the inari is rice. For side dishes: Minced beef, broccoli, pea sprouts, cheese as moon and some kamaboko as flower for decoration. I add few mini grapes as well on top of the broccoli. Punch out bunny nori using puncher (not freehand). 

Simple Miffy Bento for this year Happy Mid-Autumn Festival Bento. Hope you will like it and wish you all who celebrate "Happy Mid-Autumn 中秋节快乐"

Bento2014#Sep05~Hello Kitty Yoda

Opps....sort out my photo albums from my PC and notice this Hello Kitty Yoda have not post yet. Luckily today is Friday no bento lunch for them so I can update this bento that I made it during kids school holidays after making Hello Kitty Star Wars theme. Done Princess Leia & Trooper. In case you've missed my earlier posts can just click at the highlighted words. 
Hello Kitty Yoda made of green seaweed powder (I purchased one packet from organic shop) Freely spoon pour the seaweed powder onto the rice to made Yoda face. I add inari as the cape as well the bow. Corn for nose and nori for details.

Side dishes: chicken fillet (breadcrumbs coating), fishcake, broccoli, carrots and mini grapes.

My Hello Kitty as Yoda looks awkward right? Hahaha....well this was eaten at home so basically I'm not sure whether the seaweed powder will stay on if I pack for school ^_^ 

Hope you will still like it though :D
