Bento 208 Hello Kitty Hamburglar Bento

Don’t know to love or hate McDonald’s.  Everytime they come up with such Hello Kitty promotion, I will go crazy over collecting them all.

Anyway,  I nearly had to send my gal to school cause I was nearly not in time to finish this up!  The ribbon was the last, spells the lousy work.  Other than that, pretty happy with it 🙂

Inside croissant is nutella.  They go well!!! Yum!!!

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 196 Hello Kitty again :P

It’s exam week over here in Singapore.  1 May was Labour Day, but it meant nothing to tutors like me.  It’s the best day to have extra lessons.  Had full day session, top with revision with own children.  Life of a modern day mum 😦

Simple one here.  Shaped out of pancakes. 🙂  Scroll down for pancake’s recipe. 🙂  It’s yummy 😉

The cutter didn’t seem to work well on pancakes 😦

Hello Kitty Pancake

Hello Kitty Pancake

Pancake Recipe – Serves 4

Ingredients

Plain Flour – 1.5 cups

Baking Powder – 1 tspns

Salt – 1/2 tspn

Sugar – 1 tbsp

Milk – 1.5 cups

Medium egg – 1

Butter – 3 tbsp melted (I’m using SCS)

Method

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. Make a well in the center and pour the wet ingredients.
  3. Mix well till all the lumps are gone.  I find using whisk to mix gives great texture. (http://www.whisk.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Whisk1.jpg)
  4. Heat up non-stick pan till very hot.
  5. Lower fire to medium, pour in about a ladle full.
  6. Flip when batter starts to bubble.  (note, if pan is not hot enough, the first piece usually don’t give nice color.  But it’s still edible)
  7. Allow the other side to cook till brown. After a while, you will get a hang of the timing.

Happy cooking 🙂  The secret lies in the butter.  Use a good butter and your pancake will really be yuuuummmmm!!!!

Bento 189 – I taught my cat to clean my room

Daughter has poetry recitation today.  She selected a silly but cute poem.  So did a bento related to her poem.

The poem is at the end of this post.  Very cute poem 🙂  Glad that she did pretty well for the recitation.

I taught my caught to clean my room

I taught my caught to clean my room

I taught my cat to clean my room,
to use a bucket, brush and broom,
to dust my books and picture frames,
and pick up all my toys and games.

He puts my pants and shirts away,
and makes my bed, and I should say
it seems to me it’s only fair
he puts away my underwear.

In fact, I think he’s got it made.
I’m not too happy with our trade.
He may pick up my shoes and socks,
but I clean out his litterbox.

After packing chawanmushi the last round, kids said that the chawanmushi broke apart.  I couldn’t quite understand but can only imagine what they were saying. This time round, I put less soup stock to the egg, to firm it up more..

I folded a piece of kitchen towel so as to absorb moisture from the chawanmushi.
