Three Little Cats Bento

Finally I had the time to post this cat-themed bento I promised I would make! Can you guess that each kitty is just made out of 1 tablespoon of cooked rice? So yes, they're pretty small rice balls, which are actually great for little kids who certainly eat smaller portions than us. The brown kitty on the left is flavoured with fish floss and the yellow kitty on the right is rice ball mixed with boiled egg yolk. The side dishes are pretty similar to the sides in my previous Baby Minion Bento, since I was actually just using some leftovers (but what is a bento without using leftovers? Nightmare!! *lol* ;) - if you bento, I am sure you get what I mean :)). But I did whip up a small portion of Korean rice cakes with ground chicken.

I used the super chick "Large Bento Glamour Kitty" bento box I got from CasaBento (yep, again ;)! I think 95% of my bento supplies are from CasaBento - love you CasaBento ;D)!). If you are into cats, I think this is the perfect box for you. This box costs €31.99 and is handpainted! It is also microwave and dishwasher safe.

The cute food picks shown in today's bento are also from CasaBento. They have a pretty good selection of adorable food picks, which can function both as mini forks and cute accesories.


That's it for today. Hopefully this bento brought a smile to your face :).

  8. Ooohhh food picks that look good from above?! I don't think I'd seen any like those before.
    I like how you added links to your post, you should do it more often. ;) I bet there's a lot of content in your archive that people haven't seen yet, and linking to related bentos/topics will make it more tempting/easier for them to explore. :3

    I think I'll try mixing rice with egg yolk too!

    1. Yes, they are great for bird's eye view photography :)! And thanks for the suggestion :), I always appreciate any feedbacks to improve. I still need to work on my blog navigation, but it will take some time I think until everything is done. I was too busy working on my bento cookbook which is now available for sale :) :)!! - this was the exciting project I mentioned to you some time ago.
