Mickey Mouse Bento

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!” 🙂

Relaxing Bears

I have been slack lately because I’ve been busy with work. I am really looking forward to a long relaxing break…”aahhh…”

I went to the supermarket the other day and saw this product on the shelf. It’s a can of Angus Beef and Red Wine soup. Quick and easy soup for busy weeknights 😛 .

(Please note that the product I used is based on my own opinions.)

I can smell the wine from the soup (So, supposedly it’s not suitable for young children :-p ). The overall taste is actually quite nice. I sauted (a whole) chopped onion with a bit of olive oil before adding the can of soup and sprinkled a bit of salt and pepper. Then, I made some cute bears, to slide down the bowl, which are made of mashed potatoes. I used cut out cheese to decorate the soup. Lastly, I used cut out nori sheet for their facial expressions.

Here are the cute bears indulging in their hot soup…

Guten Appetit! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Weekends are sacred for me. They are the perfect time to relax and spend time with my family and friends.

Ballet Shoes Bento

image

I have always thought of making ballet shoes bento for a while. As this was my very first attempt, I was still trying out how to go about doing it. If any of you have any suggestions how to cut ballet shoes with the ribbon in a more effective way, I would love to hear from you.

I made the shoes out of ham and cheese. First, I traced the size of the shoes on a tracing paper and cut it. Then I used that to cut the shoes with a knife individually. That’s why it wasn’t smooth round the edges and you might have guessed it, it took me awhile to cut the ribbons and shoes individually. A simple breakfast for a ballerina.

This is a closer look of the one placed in the bento box.

There were 2 spam sandwiches, some lettuces, cut out sausages put together with a foodpick (whoopss..I’ve just realized that one of notes is in the wrong direction) and cut out carrots.

image

On the plate, there were 4 sandwiches; the fillings were lettuces, spam and cheese. Then I used a mini flower cutter to cut the carrot and cut some long strips of carrots as just an add-on. I used tomato sauce to write the word “Ballet” on the sandwich. For the ballet shoes, I tried another technique of cutting them. Here’s how I did it… (pardon me for the imperfect pictures).

image

I used 2 different sizes oval cutters. One is bigger than the other. The bigger one I used to cut the ham. I cut the sides of the ham to make it look slimmer. Then, I used the smaller oval to cut the cheese and cut it across diagonally to make it into 4 parts.

Bon Appetit! Enjoy the rest of your day! Keep watching this space, cause there’s more interesting creations to come! 🙂

 

When days are gray, when your shoulders slump and your feet drag, take a deep breath and… STAND TALL. You’ll have a much better view.
