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 173 Little Lamb Bento

Everything Cold Bento

Son has not been having appetite recently, growth spurt slowing down? Was cracking my brain on what I can pack for him.  And ‘ding!’ came the idea!  He loves Chawanmushi (Japanese steam egg), so (Tips:) I used the silicon cups as containers, and made Chawanmushi using these silicon cups.  Chilled overnight, and we have cold Chawanmushi 😀  Kind of like egg jelly?  😀  However, I’m still nervous about Daiso’s silicon cups.  Will go shop for other silicon cups for future purpose.

I put a small ice pack under the silicon cup with egg, hopefully can keep the egg cold for as long as possible.

I’m actually very happy with this idea, can foresee that I be doing the cold Chawanmushi quite a lot, especially since the hot season is approaching.
