The bento was inspired by the Winnie The Pooh roll cake I bake last week.

I love it when my bento and roll cake can be source of inspiration to both hobbies.

Potato Pancake/Fritter (Gamja Jeon)

Sharing my Sunday brunch, initially I wanted to make Korean Potato Pancakes aka Gamja Jeon, however during the frying process I forgot to flatten them up to make a thin and crisp pancake. So regardless the shape, the ingredients and the taste were delicious and finish the whole stack all by myself :D

  • 1 medium size onion, chopped finely

  • 1/2 cup plain flour (or Korean pancake flour)

Bento # 175 – Panda onigiri Bento

Yesterday was the first day of me going  back to gym for morning exercise after a very very long   (like forever) break. And as the result I slept like a baby and woke up this morning feeling energized (though my whole body was  bit sore).

Since I have  plenty of time I decided to make myself  bento for lunch.  Initially I plan to make something with the gym/exercise theme but nothing came out so I switch to something simple and easier, the classic panda onigiri.

I stuffed the panda with chopped BBQ roasted pork  (yesterday left over) and add few romaine lettuce and Chinese Xiang Chang sausage in the box and as a dessert/ afternoon snack I  pack piece of steam black glutinous rice cake with coconut.

Happy Monday all!

Wish you have a great week ahead.

Bento # 174 – Doraemon Bento

This is my second attempt making bento with Doraemon theme.

Same as my previous Doraemon I use meat patty for Doraemon’s face then decorate it with cheese, nori. And yes I have to insert Doraemon in between my bread before I eat it.

Chomp…chomp…chomp…

Bento # 173 – Cony and Brown Bento

Ever since I start baking I find myself don’t have enough time  to do both, however I am not forgetting and let go of bento especially after giving another private bento course to Mrs. HS yesterday I am encouraged to get back to my bento.

So today I woke up earlier and made my self a healthy bento  where everything in the box are steamed (kind of take a short cut to cook everything at the same time).

Anyone recognize the character in the bento without looking at the title?

Yes  I meant to make Cony the moody rabbit and Brown the chubby bear from LINE sticker. However after placing everything in the box I found myself getting rusty and not able to cut the nori the way I wanted it resemble Cony’s expression so I gave up and took out the nori puncher and just use the basic shape for the eyes and others resulted to Cony looks more like other ordinary rabbit and Brown looks more like Rilakkuma.

By the way the way I bake  Cony And Brown roll cake  last Tuesday, posted at Rabbitcanbake

At least the roll cake resemble the character better than the bento.

Nevertheless making both bento and roll cake were fun.

Psst… after looking at the bento, I felt they were too healthy and I was craving for something fried or grilled  so by the noon time, I swap my lunch and the bento went to my neighbor Mrs. HH  :D

Happy Friday all!

Wish you have a great weekend ahead.

Bento # 172 – Bunny and Teddy Bento

Yesterday I  received  bunch of baso goreng (Indonesian name for Indonesian version of fried meat ball which combine chicken , prawn and corn/tapioca flour and other seasoning) from my BFF’s mum.

Yes my friend Ms. K ‘s mum is famous for her delicious baso goreng and I am so delighted when she told me that her mum’s is making them and I got my share too. I decided to convert some  into bento before I really finish all those yummy baso (which in the process of bento making I already devoured about 5 pieces) :D

Tada… I  present you Bunny and Teddy which were made of Baso goreng.

Also some Japanese purple sweet potato cake and berries for dessert.
