This week's bento is super easy to make! To recreate the cute little goldfishies, all you need are:
  1. 2 cherry tomatoes
  2. a slice of white coloured cheese
  3. a piece of nori seaweed.  
Take one cherry tomato and cut it into two equal pieces. One is for the head and the other half is for the tail and fins. To make the tail, cut the halved tomato into thin slices. Take one slice and cut out two mini triangles for the fins.

Get a thin drinking straw and punch two circles out of cheese for the white part of the eyes and cut  two small circles out of nori to make the pupils.

Arrange everything together as pictured above and voilĂ , you get yourself a goldfish :).

See you all next week :)!

Recently I saw a video which shows how to make Totoro spam musubi. I thought it's such a cute idea and very simple to follow as well. I didn't make a Totoro template because I couldn't be bothered to do so, but the Totoro spam musubis still turn out quite alright, don't they :)? Check out this video to make your own Totoro spam musubi, it's pretty cool :). 

I also included four mini Totoros which are made out of quail eggs tinted blue with purple carrots and decorated with nori eyes, nose and fried spaghetti whiskers. 

 That's it for today and see you next week :).

I made another bento today :). The little teddy bears are made out of deli meat (turkey) and they are sitting on top of mini cheese and nori sandwiches. I used a few bento cutters I got from Daiso to make the bears and I think they turn out pretty cute :).

The other bento box contains two tatami onigiris filled with fried egg and chicken/mushroom bulgogi, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and fried fishcakes, plus a piece of  carved radish.

I'll try to make one bento per week from now on, so stay tuned and see you next week :)!

Ms Baggins commisioned me to do another bento, and this time for her sister's birthday. She didn't really give me a theme this time and just asked me to make something cute and perhaps with some penguins or totoro. This is the bento I came up with and I just hope that her sister would like it...!

I made two penguin onigiris, two quail egg penguins and two quil egg totoros. I also made some tamagoyaki chicks and decorated the box with blanched brocolli florets, fried tom yam flavoured fishcakes, cherry tomatoes, three pieces of carved radishes, blanched carrot cutouts and two pieces of cooked teddy bear shaped pasta.
