The HOTEST sports in the world is now FIFA World Cup 2010 which held in South Africa. Are you a football fan? I am, but only fan of FIFA WORLD CUP.
Japan has entered in to round 16 with one loss and two wins. The Japanese team being an unpredictable side so far. Last night match was between Paraguay and Japan, it's a test of South American and Asian football characters.
Paraguay squeezed through to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history as Yuichi Komano's penalty miss sent Japan crashing out of the tournament. With the game goalless at the end of extra time in Pretoria, South Africa witnessed its first shoot-out and, after Komano had clipped the crossbar, Oscar Cardozo rolled home the winning spot-kick to give the South Americans a 5-3 win.

This bento is specially dedicated to the Japanese team. I am truly sad on thier lose but I believe they have done their best!! Hopefully next FIFA they will achieve better result.
I bought a triangular sandwich cutter recently, can't wait to give a try to see is the cutter as handy as my square sandwich cutter. Well, after a try, the answer is "YES", it's a good sandwich tool. In fact, I think it is better than the square cutter as everything (seal and cut) is only one press. The square cutter you have to seal the bread first, then use the outter square to cut it.
Probably you have no idea which type of sandwich cutter I am mentioning. No worry, very soon I will prepare egg sandwich for my boy, I will snap photos on how to use the two cutters so that you have clearer picture. Stay tune yeah!!
Back to bento today, triangular sandwich, what can I fix other then fox? Oh yes, why not a mouse? But only bread is too plain, so I fix a sausage mouse too.... No fruit today as I haven't restock my fridge. (~.~)
My boy requested this moulded egg for quite sometime, but I didn't fulfill his request as I reserve it for time when I run out of idea. Today I finally prepare this egg for him, that means I have idea shortage... kekeke
I eventually use the stencil bought last year to draw the rabbit eyes and mouth. The result seems not bad, at least I have another alternative, not always nori for face features. I put the stencil on the cut out bread, sprinkle some cocoa powder (Milo) then remove the stencil. Hmm... if I happen to see other stencil, will definately grab one.
It's a rainy morning again. Cold wind blows and it's so hard for me to get up from bed. Why not just fix something simple that suits the weather today? Yeah... Rain Rain Go Away, Come Again Another Day, Little Isaac Wants to Play....
Yes, I cooked speghetti again last Sunday, that's why I have button mushroom left again. For details on how to prepare this "Pizza", please click HERE but this time I added ham. I didn't finish all the banana for the banana cake, so I packed some for Isaac.
This is my 3rd attempt to bake cake, but this time is banana cake. Remember the first two attempts wasn't that successful and I have figured out where went wrong. This time I sifted the flour, I heated the oven earlier, I used butter instead of margarine and beat it longer.
The banana cupcake taste so nice while it is still hot, it's loose and soft inside. Banana is one of Isaac's favourite fruit, therefore he loves this cupcake more compare with previous two cupcakes. I decorated the cupcake into little brown bear. As you can see, the ears were cut from banana cake too... (^.^)
Ingredients:(around 16 cupcakes) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 230g Self Raising Flour 230g Butter, softened at room temperature 160g Castor Sugar 300g Banana (mash it) 3 Eggs, at room temperature 1/2 Teaspoon Banana Essence (I forgot to buy therefore I use vanilla essence) 1/3 cup of hazelnut (mash it and bake in oven until golden)
Methods: 1. Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy. 2. Add eggs, beat until well combined. 3. Sift self raising flour over butter mixture and mix well. 4. Add in vanilla essence, mashed banana and hazelnut then mix well. 5. Preheat the oven to 175 degree. 6. Line 16 paper cups in muffin tray. 7. Put the mixture into muffin tray then put 3-4 hazelnut on top. 8. Bake the cake for 15 - 20 minutes until light golden.
Last weekend I cooked spaghetti, there were some buttom mushroom left, therefore I baked some button mushroom "pizza" for my two Mr.Handsome. Isaac love the bread, he claimed that two is not enough, the mushroom is so yummy, asked me to prepare more (^.^) Does the apple looks like rabbit?
