A late post of bento that I made yesterday, Winnie The Pooh. Mix the rice with yolk to get yellow color and the rest of the dish were left over dinner, 2 pieces of satay chicken with the pick removed , a small portion of green curry and peanut sauce with indonesian pickle.
Bento # 176- Winnie The Pooh Bento
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.
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.
Bento # 175 – Panda Bento
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.
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.
Bento # 174 – Doraemon Bento
Sharing Doraemon decorative roll cake that I baked last week and yes I draw Doraemon in piece of paper as reference before I draw it on my cake.
Happy Friday all…
Wish you have a great weekend ahead.
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.
Bento # 173 – Cony and Brown bento
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 😀
Happy Friday all!
Wish you have a great weekend ahead.
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) 😀
Tada… I present you Bunny and Teddy which were made of Baso goreng.
Bento # 172 – Bunny and Teddy Bento
Cut the baso into 2 for bunny’s and teddy’s face and some more for the ears then decorated them with cheese.
For the side dish I have bunch of veggies, a piece of steamed chicken breast, mum’s famous stew egg and some blanched carrots cut into flower shape and ebi shape.
Also some Japanese purple sweet potato cake and berries for dessert.
Happy Monday All!
A rather gloomy Tuesday and I decided to turn my lunch into bento despite the lack of ingredients. Situation like this remind me to make a good use of many of my new and un-used bento tools/accesories.
Bento # 171 – Little Mice bento
Today lunch consist of 2 rice balls decorated with cheese and nori and bento picks for the hats, few pieces of the freshly baked blueberry almond cake decorated with bento picks (music notes) , a portion of mushroom stir fry and few pieces of fried chicken wings.
Separately I pack a set of similar bento for my friend too Ms. HH, she is a big fan of mushroom and I hope the lunch can cheer up her up.
Happy Tuesday all.
Today I spent my morning considering whether I should busy myself doing baking or making bento and finally I decided to make some bento since it’s been ages since the last time I made one. However I kind of running out of idea and stock of food, now a day my fridge consist mostly fruits, fresh cream, butter and other baking ingredients.
So upon ransacking the fridge I still have few leftover dishes from last night dinner, a quarter of roasted duck, small portion of fried rice and white steam rice. So I simply reheat the whole things and place the rice into my cute baking mold and voila, animal paw bento for lunch. Running out of green veggis so I take the short cut by adding some silicon baran for nicer color 😉
Bento # 170 – Animal Paw Bento
This bento was inspired by my last week baking on marble butter cake where I got to use my new and cute silicon mold.
Happy Thursday all.Cheers.
Yes, despite the sudden crush on baking I still remember the old love for bento. So few days without bento today I made a simple tomato fried rice bento with pork chop for myself. The white owl was made of fish ball while the tree were pork chop slices and cucumber for the leaves.
Happy Monday all 🙂
Today Bento is copying Snoopy’s famous pose, lazying for the afternoon 🙂
Bento # 168 – Lazy Snoopy Bento
As the substitute of the dog house I use Menchi Katsu, which is minced meat stuffed in the Aburaage (tofu pocket). While for the rice I use 2 type, fried rice as the base and white rice for Snoopy.
Happy Friday All.
Dear friends, thank you so much for you kind wishes when I was down with flu last week, I am fully recovered and back to the kitchen and my bento making.
Today bento is Koalas made of mum’s famous stew egg which she pack for me for my stash.
My mum said that she regretted for having the patience to learn and hence not able to replicate my grandma’s famous stew egg (mum told me grandma always spend hours, cooking and stirring those eggs in black bean sauce, using charcoal stove to ensure the flavor and seasoning slowly penetrate the dish). I do not have any memory of my grandma’s stew egg because she passed away when I was 7 years old hence mum’s version is still my fave. I cut the egg into thinner slices to make the ears, head and body and place the stew sauce at the bottom of the rice (I always love the sauce). The 3 pieces of corn and prawn fritters was also from mum 🙂
Bento # 167 – Koalas Bento
Happy Monday All!
