Bento # 147 – Flowers sandwich Bento

Another post of my breakfast today. The internet had been acting crazy for the past few days so I tried to catch up with my lack of posting in this week.

I always admired those bento blogger whom made their own custom made colorful bread from scratch and always envious on the many interesting theme they can created with it. Since I am not a baker nor have any talent in that area, I am so happy to be able to find  purple bread made of Japanese purple sweet potato.

Today sandwiches were cheese and blueberry jam sandwiches.  I try to play and create the flowers using 3 types of bread, the normal white bread, pandan bread and the mentioned above sweet potato bread.

I cut round holes on the top layer of my sandwiches using round cookie cutter and then fill the empty holes with balls made of bread  (a technique that I saw  from bento book). You may noticed that the white flower petals were roundish like balls while the purple one is just standard shape (the bread was rather thick so I decided to just keep them into round shapes).

Bento # 119 – Mokona Modoki Bento

Any CLAMP manga or anime fans should be able to recognize the name and the look of this creature 🙂

Yes, today I am featuring Mokana Modoki, they are the two of what so called rabbit looks  like creatures from CLAMP. The actual name of the White Mokona is Soel while for the Black Mokona is Larg (though they were never called in their real names and often addressed themselves as just Mokona).

Bento # 119 – Mokona Modoki Bento

My first introduction with Mokona was in the Magic Knight Rayearth series (the white Mokona)  and then later when I read XXXHolic series , which is also by  CLAMP’s sisters, I know about the black Mokona.

My Black Mokona in today bento was not really black. The intention was to decorate it with Nori to get the whole black color but come to think of it, unlike on rice, too much Nori on bread might not be too wise when it comes to the taste so I modified the plan a bit by toasting the bread to get a warm golden brown color instead of black.

The two Mokonas were made of cheese and cucumber sandwiches, decorated with spam for the ears and feet, nori, cherry tomato, cheese and cucumber.

Happy Friday All !

Happy Bento Party Friday 🙂
