Little Teddy Bento



I am back....:D)!!

And with a good news too :)! Finally I've got my German driver's license after sweating blood and sweat for 3 weeks ;). Well, I am exaggerating a little bit, but getting a driver's license in Germany is not very easy and certainly not within 3 weeks. I have to say I am really quite proud of myself that I did manage to get it in such a short time, especially because everything was done in German (including the horrible theory test which I passed with NO mistakes, Yay :D)!!!). I did the practical test two days ago. I wasn't sure if I would pass it, since I had never driven in my life before I did this intensive driving course and I have to admit that my sense of orientation and directions is rather questionable ;), so I was EXTREMELY happy when the examiner told me that I passed the test...:D)!!

I especially have to thank my MIL for her support during the three-week period. Because of her I was able to focus only on driving and felt like that I was staying in a 5-star hotel :). I think without her, I wouldn't be able to do it...!




Anyway, back to bento now :). My MIL is a very good cook and she makes the most delicious western dishes, however, after eating western dishes for three whole weeks, I have been craving for something Asian. My choice fell to Indonesian Beef Rendang - beef simmered in coconut milk with various spices. I also made tomato and rucola salad with vinaigrette dressing and the teddy rice was seasoned with chili oil and sambal oelek. The flowers under the teddy are made out of goat cheese and gouda cheese. I used my new food picks which I bought in Daiso Singapore some time ago to decorate the rice.



Enjoy your weekend, everyone :D)!

  1. Congratulations! I am so proud of you for all that hard work! It's so nice to have family behind you. The bento is gorgeous, just love the bear. I was wondering what you put in the rice. Funny, but living in the US if I had western meals for 3 weeks straight I would be craving something Asian too. I would also be craving something Latin or Mexican, and probably some curries! :D

  8. Welcome back CG! Missed you and all your lovely, beautiful bentos and great recipes! ;D
    Congrats and you're really great to pass your driving in just 3 weeks! Deserved to feel very proud of yourself! I'm not that great, countless time (from 16yrs old, on and off takings, then stopped few yrs) to pass my basic theory test, better luck for my final theory test, one time pass. Horrible for practical test which I passed only on the 4TH TIME! lol
    Cute little teddy! I got the same picks at Daiso too and I love them so much! ;)
    Your Beef Rendang sounds and looks tempting eh! Gonna check it out now!
