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.
