I have a little nephew who turns 2 over the weekend and he loves Mickey Mouse very much. So, I have decided to create a Mickey Mouse bento especially for him and his sunday school friends. Being aware that the children are mainly toddlers, so I tried to make it as simple and as “toddler-friendly” as possible for our little guys to enjoy 😆 Ta-daaa…
In this box, there are a couple of tamagoyaki, heart-frankfurters, a couple of ham and cheese Mickey Mouse, grapes and strawberries which the children love…
The birthday boy had a great wonderful day and our little friends enjoyed their lunch together.“It’s yummy, mommy!” 🙂
Laughter is timeless,
imagination has no age,
and dreams are forever.

Here’s another of my Inari sushi Kidz -O- Bento creation. Somehow, I am excited to use Inari as one of my ingredients for my bento. Not only it is easy, I can experiment with various toppings too ;-). On my previous post, I used quail eggs as the head; this time, I tried to use halved fish ball as the head. It actually turned out great!
For one of the toppings, I tried using canned Unagi which I bought it from a local Asian grocery store. I have never tried canned Unagi before, so I thought, I might give it a try this time. The texture is actually not too bad, however, it’s a little bit too sweet for me. The other topping was “Hot and Spicy” Spam, which I bought a while ago in our local supermarket. Since I don’t normally buy Spam, I never thought that that flavour existed. To my surprise, it tasted yummy! The sidedishes on the plate include lettuces, carrots, tamagoyaki and Grape Perino tomatoes.
I tried putting them in two different boxes to see how they turned out. Let’s vote…Do you prefer Bento box 1 or Bento box 2?
In box 1, I put in 2 Inari sushi guys and lettuces, tamagoyaki, Grape Perino tomato and german potatoes as sidedishes.
In box 2, I put in 2 Inari sushi guys and lettuces, tamagoyaki, Grape Perino tomato, german potatoes and mixed vegetables as sidedishes.
Here’s the recipe for German Potatoes from “Kawaii Bento Boxes” book.
1 small potato
1 strip bacon, cut up
1/2 tsp butter
1. Peel and slice potato into thin quarter rounds. Cover and microwave 2-3 mins or just until tender.
2. Heat butter in a frying pan. When butter melts, stir-fry potato slices, and then add bacon slices
3. Season with salt. (If moist finish is preferred, pour in some milk to finish)
I have just recently watched “Lego Movie” and bought some figurines. I couldn’t resist not taking photos of my Kidz -O- Bento creation with my lego figurines. “Everything is Awesome! Everything is Cool!” 😉
The only thing you need to be special is TO BELIEVE you can be.

During my summer holiday, I had a chance to go to Singapore to have a workshop with my favourite bento idol, Little Miss Bento. I was extremely excited to finally meet her. I came across her work of bento art while I was ‘google-ing’ for bento ideas last year. Her work of art was amazing!
For the workshop, we decided on Chinese New Year themed Bento.
Here’s the cute sleeping sheep bento I learnt to make in a few hours. Time flies when you are having so much fun and I learnt heaps from my bento idol. 😉
The sheep was handmade without any mould. Everything was made of rice except for the horn, which was made of egg sheet. I learnt how to make perfect yellow eggsheet, which I cut and rolled into flowers and attached the end with pasta. I also learnt how to make the 3D carrot flowers top with a few black sesame. The sides were prepared by her. There were baked chicken, edamame, stir fry broccoli, mushroom and tofu. Lastly, I was given that special kamaboko with the picture of a sheep. I love it to the max! It is so cute!! I wish we have them here in Australia.
Happy Chinese New Year!
新年快乐 羊年吉祥 万事如意
