Bento 153 Basketball Boy Bento again and Maki Bento

Basketball Boy Bento for son

Long day = full meal for recess.  Another basketball bento, but in different form.  Realised ball bigger than boy’s head!!! 😛 oops

I was just thinking this morning that maybe if I include a how I manage to do all these in the morning will help any potential bento maker learn.  So when I have time, I will include that at the bottom of the post.

The box’s cover is the sink in type, think everything were a little squeezed up 😛

Food : Sweet and Sour Pork, Soy Sauce and Sesame Xiao Bai Cai, rice shaped as basketball and boy, plus mini pack of chilled milo

Simple Maki Bento for daughter

Usually on days when I have to pack full meal for son, I will have less time to do up my daughter’s box.  So it’s just a simple maki box with no decoration for her.  🙂

Bought an organic Japanese cucumber, but it’s rotten inside 😦  So sad, wasted my money.  Thank goodness I have another non-organic one in the fridge.

Food : Cucumber and crabstick maki, fruits and she was happy to see the Popper Juice treat

My bento morning today:

Ok, for those interested, this is how the Basketball Boy Bento was done.

Night before, around 9pm

  • The sweet and sour sauce was prepared, and put into fridge when done.
  • The pork was pre-fried too.
  • Rice cooked and left in the rice cooker (which is my thermal cooker)
  • Fruits and lettuce washed.
  • Box to be used taken out
  • Seaweed for boy’s hair cut.  I didn’t cut the basketball’s seaweed since I wasn’t too sure how big will the ball be.

In the morning from 5.15am

  • Fill up and boil water for kids’ milo
  • Steamer started to  heat up the rice
  • Put fried pork into sweet and sour sauce and heat up

By 5.30am

  • Make milo.
  • All the above done, next was to make the vegetable and crabsticks.
  • Scooped enough rice and shape into basketball and boy’s face.  Basketball color was achieve using the sweet and sour sauce.
  • Decorate with seaweed.  Put into the box.

By 5.45am

  • Wake son up and prepare his crepe for breakfast.
  • Put the pork and vegetable into the box.  Sprinkle sesame seed.

By 6am

  • All done. Take photo. 😛
  • Wake up daughter, prepare her breakfast, her bento, and start the rest of our morning 🙂
