Bento #60 - Chick Chick


This is a post of many firsts. :)  This is my first hand shaped onigiri, my first time making tamagoyaki and my first week of making so many bentos.  Usually, I would make 1 or 2 a week and they aren't much of a bento.  I call them plating cos it's what I make for Kimi's breakfast.

I'm so happy and really enjoyed the process of making these charaben.  Even Kimi will ask me what bento he will be having. :)  I hope I will be able to continue to make at least 1 or 2 each week.

In this bento : Hand moulded rice chick onigiri, decorated with nori, 2 corn kernels and ketchup for blushing cheeks. Xiao Bai Cai stir fry with abalone mushrooms, corn, tamagoyaki, salmon stew, cherry tomato.  I used purple potato for the stew hence it became rather dark.

You did a GREAT job on that tamagoyaki and onigiri! I have yet to try tamagoyaki. For some reason I feel intimidated by it. :) I wish I did have more time to make bentos, right now I can manage about 3 per week. Love this bento Tona-mama! Tweet tweet!

Karen - Tks so much Karen! :)

Sonoma Bento - Tks for your encouragement! :) I am also very intimidated but I thought hey, just try it out. The trick is getting everything ready and use low fire and pour only a little to coat a think layer of egg batter.

I saw the tutorial from here:-
