Bento #12 - Simply Egg

Ohh no... so fast, I am running out of idea.... Open the fridge, what I can get is only egg. I know why I have this "No Idea" situation, because my fridge is always empty. I don't cook most of the time, even during weekend. My excuse is - I will have no time if I cook, then I need to sacrifice time spend with my boy. Besides of empty fridge, I think I am lack of bento tools, I need tools to come out something nice & cute... (again excuses.... haha).

This cute bunny rabbit attracted many friends who are new to "Bento". They are curious about how to make the egg into the shape. You need a rabbit egg mould and it is pretty simple to make:-
1. hard boild the egg
2. remove the shell
3. put it in the egg mould
4. place it in water for 15 min
5. open the egg mould, the rabbit is there waiting for you :)

Bento #11 - Burger

Today's bento, I use the same bread again. I guess this time the result is much more better than bento #9.

Bento #10 - Kon Low Mee

Such a lovely bears & stars. Isaac was so surprise seeing this, he asked me how I made it. Pretty simple, my sister bought it from market, she told me is fish cake. But I guess it is like Japanese kamaboko.

Bento #9

Ever since shifted to Sri Petaling, I have never buy him my childhood bread - Gardiner long bread, with cream inside. Yesterday night, he saw that bread in "roti car", quickly grabbed one with corn flavor (his favourite).

This morning I came out an idea, why not cut the bread into different shape. I took out star shape cutter, once cut, found out the cutter is not deep enough to cut the bread... that's why you can see a crack line on it, and it is abit out of shape, because I pressed too hard to force the cutter goes through the bread. Before cutting the other two, I cut the bread into half. It really looks much better.... :)

Bento #5 - Bears Family

Urshhh... my alarm was not ringing. I was late again. Previously, it was ok to get up late, but not now a day. I need to prepare bento, futher more, need to dry the clothes today. Which one should I do first? I think I should not disappoint my boy, clothes I can wash it again. Without further ado, I took out my bento-ing 'weapon'. Surprisingly, this bento is quite nice.

Hmm... not bad, at least still able to come out something cute - 'Bears Family'. Good work... haha

Bento #4

I told Isaac I can't prepare bento for him when his papa is not around. He wonder why, so as you? I need his papa to dress him up in case my bento has unexpected result... (haha... all testing terms). Anyway, I still came out a simple bento for him, just not to disappoint him.

Bento #3

So far, this is the bento which I satisfied most. It it what I expected. You might wonder what is the white little bear, a jelly? Tell you what, it is egg. Of course, I need a special tool to change the shape from oval to teddy bear. Like it?

The butterfly is made of bread with jam. I roll it and cut it into small pieces. I used beancurd to make the body.

Bento #2

Talk about this bento, I really disappointed with it. This is not the expected result (>_<). I woke up quite early on Tuesday, thinking of fring pin noodle for my two handsome. I spent more than half an hour in the kitchen, and the pin noodle doesn't taste good at all. My baked sausage, doesnt look like penguin also. I have 15min more, I need to come out another design. Without further await, I took out my bento tools and the balance sponge cake. I need to cook the sausage instead of bake it. Still, the penguin doesn't look like penguin. Probably caused by the sausage. I should use the other type of sausage.

I felt so disappointed. I told my boy:

Mummy: I am so sorry, the bento doesnt look nice at all. I intent to fry you pin noodle, but it wasn't taste good.
Isaac: Doesn't matter mummy, I think the bento is very nice.
Mummy: Thanks baby, with your encouragement, I think I can do it better next time (hug him).

Bento #1

I planned this design a day before and I think I should start with something simple (in fact, because I only have limited tools, can only make a simple one). So, purposely go and get a sponge cake. I simply give this bento a theme - Bear and Flower.

The flower doesn't look nice, how to make it more attractive? Maybe I should add some 'Smarties'... NO... I looked around the kitchen, trying very hard to find something better. My focus dropped on the strawberry jam. Yup, perfact match. I added some nectar to the flower.

A double-decker bento box, come with a strip. I love this bento box, so does my boy.

Oh yeah, I forgot to remind you, please do not compare my bento with shoppingmum. My bento skill of course not as good as hers, and I know is a big gap. But I promise will work harder :)
