Bento #283 - Star Wars Sammies

Ok, Yoda and Darth arent exactly buddies or couple but I only had 5-10 mins to throw a bento together and this was the fastest way to close the lid on a prepared box! lol!  But, if you think about it, before Anakin became Vader, he'd most probably was chummies with Yoda? :)

I had a good time this morning cos I went for a coffee chat cum breakfast with Kimi's teacher, Kettrin. Guess we gossipped, er, I meant fellowshipped a bit too much that I almost missed the time!  Actually, I was really running late. It was such a enjoyable morning and it's the first time I had such a leisurely break in the morning.  Thanks to hb for taking care of Kimi and tks Kett, we must 'la-kopi' again soon!

In the box is quick pressed Nutella sammies with carrot bread, seaweed chix, corn and broccoli!  Really, I am lousy with bread, many mummies I know have such great sandwich pressing skills!  Must pratise more!! :)

Can you see the Lego on top right? Kimi built that and called it his "zoomer".  Nice!!

Thank God it's Friday! Yay, next week is a short week!

Bento #282 - Onigiri Couple

After I posted yesterday's bento, I realised and remembered I had wantesd to do a buddy/couple/pair theme this week!

I've always loved the simple cute triangular onigiri so I made this cute couple that has Mayo Corn centres.  Arghhh, I don know why the red decor gel smudged cos the rice was not hot/warm.  They looked so messy. :(
Other goodies in the box are Chicken Yakitoi, broccoli, corn, grapes and a Hanuta Choc Wafer. :)

Bento #281 - Piggy Buddies

I've been rather busy so there are 2 weeks of bento posts to upload! Yikes, gasp, yes!!

The bad thing is I can't remember the inspiration behind the bentos after all this time :(  For this bento, I only remembered Kimi wanted fish floss sushi but why the piggy buddies, er..  I totally cant remember!! lol!

So, ok, it's sushi with our usual stash of broccoli, corn, blueberries and Hanuta choc wafer. :)

Bento #280 - Star Wars

A lazy and fast bento. I used the star wars cutter to make Yoda's face with bread, mist it green and stuff more picks on the bento.

We had Pork Katsu Japanese Curry Rice last night for dinner, so I kept some cutlet for today's lunch but made sweet & sour sauce for Kimi instead.  He wanted Jap Curry again! Gosh, Kimi never seems to tire of Jap curry huh? lol!

Besides the pork cutlet with sweet & sour sauce, there are garlic asparagus, corn, blueberries and golden kiwi.

Bento #279 - Curious George

My initial plan of another character was thwarted cos I had to attend to something :( By the time it was settled, it was too late so I did a quick one and grabbed a cuppie topper and stuff it in the sammie.

Kimi requested for Nutella sandwich but I realised I had ran out so I replaced with Peanut Butter instead. Added broccoli, corn, jelly, cubed cheese, cranberries and golden kiwi.

Definitely, I must make that character I had planned.. Maybe next week? Phew, it's been a busy week and thank God its the weekends, I need a break and rest, BADLY!

Blessed Happy Weekends everyone!!

Bento #278 - Totoro

Ahh! Who doesn't like Totoro & friends? They are such a cute bunch! This is my 2nd time making Totoro and I'm loving it, will make again with bun which I saw at some blogs, :)

Totoro is made with 2 kinds of rice, white and rice tossed in black sesame powder.  They are hand-moulded.  I did not make the black part too dark as I don want the rice to be too bitter.
It's Kimi's favourite lunch combo today - breaded prawns with Japanese curry.  Japanese curry is mine and Hb's fave too, it mus run in the family? lol!  Added broccoli, corn and grapes. The Jap curry is inside the Thermos holder so it will be nice and warm when Kimi has his lunch later. :)

Bento #277 - Sirotan

I'm still on the character theme this week for Kimi's lunch bento.  Sirotan is a really cute seal character and I really did not do justice to him!  Little Sirotans are made of quail' eggs and I am so upset the gel literally melted and slided off, making a mess!

Been busy of late so I've been slack in posting. This was Wed's lunch.  Hmm, I'm kind of enjoying this theme thingey. :)

Defininitely not too happy with today's bento cos I think I did not depict the cute Sirotan as cute as he orginally is. I will try again soon.

Today's lunch is Butter Sugar with carrot bread, broccoli, corn, grapes and breaded fish. :)
Sigh, so upset the gel, melted and made a mess of Sirotan's face!

Bento #276 - Afro-Ken

Another doggy bento today, not intentional, just coincidence. :)

Afro-Ken is my personal fave and I collected quite a few when they were 'in'. Have since given away to my nieces. This chap is so cute and cool! His hair can be changed and he has many different wigs to the likes of Elvis Presley's curry puff, Marilyn Monroe's sexy bob and what not. He's so funny! I love this bugger and still do.  The plush also comes w removeable wigs to change around, how cute right???

Afro ken is made of 2 kinds of cheese and I used Wilton colour mist to get the rainbow effect.  Lunch is rice with meatballs in sweet sauce, broccoli, corn, grapes and jelly.
This is a yummy meatballs with rice recipe, almost like sweet, sticky sauce that is widely found in Japanese restaurant on their hamburg steak with a slight variance.  The hamburg steak has a stronger BBQ sauce flavouring while I did not use any in this recipe.  You can find the recipe here, in the Great Eastern LIVE GREAT Blog which I had contributed some time back.  Do check it out cos it's easy to make and meatballs freezes well.
Found some of his wigs online, there are MORE!!!

Yaaaaawnnn! Argghh, it's the start of a new school term again. Where did the 1 week go??  We have not had enough fun or rest and it's back to school.
The 2 cute Pandas, Kai Kai & Jia Jia have landed safely in Singapore last week and we can't wait to see them.  Hb helped out in his company's function as he donned the Kai Kai costume.  How cute!!!

For the fun, I made a pair of Pandas today for Kimi's lunch.  He was so happy!

The fluffy and chubby Playful Pandas are rice onigiri and they are amongst asparagus disguised as bamboos, Salmon Teriyaki, golden kiwi, grapes, more corn and extra teriyaki sauce.
This short 1 week school hols I did not do much with Kimi but we did had lots of fun the last 2 days.  Arrgghh... I wished school hols starts now till next year! :(
