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. 🙂

For the brother, it’s one of his usual, cold noodle.

He was feeling kind of stressed about the tests in this coming week, didn’t do much to his bento.  But wrote a simple “I love you” message on his breakfast sandwich 🙂

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 🙂

Bento 151 Basketball Boy Bento and Strange Monster Bento

I think I have been neglecting son’s box and didn’t give much deco to his.  So last night, die die wanted to think of something.  Today’s theme came to mind cause he started the basketball CCA and had been enjoying it. 🙂

His “I’m so pleased” kind of smile upon seeing the bento made the effort all worth it.  🙂

Basketball Boy Bento

Food : Frozen Prata, fruits, Rocher

Strange Monster Bento

Food : Nutella Bread Ball, corn, Rocher, and fruits

Bento 150 Valentine Chicks Bento and Carbonara Bento

Chicky chicks are here to wish all of you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

With yellow-colored bread, it just dawned upon me to make chicks.  By the way, the bread is carrot bread from Crystal Jade Bread. 🙂  Pretty yummy actually.  The carrot taste is not distinct at all.

Oh, good news is that, after sneaking in cucumbers into the makis, my gal now like cucumbers!!! Woo hoo!!!!  Something good out of bento making 🙂

Valentine Chicks Bento for her

Food : Sandwiches, cucumbers and berries.

Carbonara Bento for him

Jamie Oliver’s Carbonara in the food jar.  But I made some changes to his recipes.  Kids don’t like peas, so I changed them to carrots/corns.  Cream is not easily accessible in my estate, as such, I use Campbell’s Chicken Cream instead.   Welcomed changes since kids find it not sooooo creamy.

Food : Carbonara, cashew nuts and berries.
