I’m back!!!

I just checked my last entry date, I disappeared for exactly 8 months!!!

For the second half of last year, I was still bento’ing, but partly I was busy, partly I wasn’t that inspired to do anything fanciful.

Ever since the school term started this year, I have been doing, just that been busy and haven’t updated the blog much.  I will probably do batch updating.

For today’s post, I uploaded that I made this year.  Nothing much fanciful, but they are simple and not difficult to complete on the wee early school day morning.  Some of them, especially the rice bentos, were actually lunches that I made and brought to school for my children.  For those, I had more time to do. 🙂

Bento 211 – Keroppi Bento

My Kokeshi Box in action 🙂  A very simple to do, 10 minutes Keroppi Bento.  Originally only planned to do 1, but giant Keroppi looked ugly.  Changed my mind and made 2 instead.

Main dish was marmite chicken, one of my family favorite 🙂

Some asked me if only Japanese rice can be used to make these shaped rice.  My answer is no.

Tips : Normal Chinese Jasmine rice can be used to shape into rice balls.  Just add slightly more water.

Bento 205 Woof Woof Bento

Another simple simple one.   Doggie bento for both.  But son’s is actually his breakfast, he doesn’t want to pack anything for recess.  So did a simple deco for his breakfast on the go instead.

For son’s the white parts are bread actually.  For gal’s, they are the white part of kamaboko.  Her box also has grapes, hidden behind the ‘dog’.  1 bun seems little, but I rather give her a variety than 2 buns, so topped with corn, grapes and dried apricot.

Bento 204 – Cheat Zoo Bento

Another very quicky bento with lots and lots of help from pretty barans and picks :P.

Food was bread roll with egg and floss.  Haiz… Cannot see it, but I thought today’s bread roll was my best ‘performance’ so far. 😛  Inside the pig was pistachio.  Gal’s latest craze.

Nothing for son to pack to school 😛 So he get from canteen. 😛

Cold Soba for son

Tip : Make the soba the night before and keep in the fridge.  So as to keep the soba as chilled as possible.  Freeze the soba sauce in the freezer, the frozen soba sauce can act as an “ice pack” in the lunch bag.

Bento 200 – Dwaeji Tokki Bento

Any Korean drama fans? Hee hee, I am one 😀

Today’s bento’s inspiration came from a K drama (You Are Beautiful).  It’s a combination of pig and rabbit.  In Korean, this soft toy is called DwaeJi-Tokki 🙂

Oh! It’s my 200th Bento!!! Wow!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Son requested for breadrolls.  Wanted to make it into caterpillar, but somehow the nori facial features didn’t look good, so I gave up.
