Bento #47 ~ Little Mei, My Neighbor Totoro ~

The girls have been watching My Neighbor Totoro everyday @.@ Big E said the little sister Mei is so cute just like her sister Little A. This give me the idea to make Little Mei in the bento for her snacks. 

Little Mei is made from cheese, crabstick and nori for the eyes, dabbed a little bit of tomato sauce for the cheeks. Hair is made from egg sheet mixed with dark soy sauce, hat and clothes are made from egg sheet and crabstick.

In the bento, there are pork floss sandwiches with mayo, some strawberries and egg flower.

And here is Mei!

A closer look of Mei.....:)

Bento #45~ Little Strawberries Onigiri ~

Today almost no bento for the girls......Yesterday night, I forgot to start the rice cooker @.@ Usually I will set the timer to cook the rice at 4.00am. Luckily morning wake up still enough time for me to cook the rice. How I wish the rice will cooked within 10 mins :P I use fan to cool down the rice and quickly shape the onigiri. So today onigiri a bit out of shape....hahaha

While waiting for the rice to cook, I prepare the little strawberries using ham and cheese, broccoli as the leaves and details are nori. 

Other than rice onigiri, I prepared some gyoza, fried egg and sausages (not in the photo), a pack of furikake and some grapes for the girls.

Bento #44 ~ Rilakkuma & Korilakkuma Good Luck Bento ~

Hmm........when everyone almost finish their exam, Big E start her exam. Today first day of exam, I make Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma with good luck headband for the girls. Having a good luck / gambateh bento on the first day of exam seems a must for the girls. Yesterday night, my niece called me to remind me to make good luck bento for her. Haha........This make me stress because I'm so worried that I cannot wake up on time, as this will normally happen to me on Monday :P Luckily manage to wake up at 5.15am. 

I darken the Rilakkuma with some dark soy sauce, headband is made of crabstick and the wording is egg sheet. The ears are made of sausages and chikuwa. Today's menu, grilled salmon, scallop beancurd, sausages and chikuwa. Forgot to add in the fruits :S

Told Big E do not shake the bento bags as I worried the wordings will fall although I've used angel hair to fixed the wordings. Big E replied "Don't worry mummy, if the words fall I still will find the words and eat it!" Lol!

And here are the good luck bentos for the girls :)

These are the exam bentos that I've make for the girls for the past few years......

Bento #41 ~ Ribbon Sushi ~

Last Saturday, I make some ribbon sushi for the girls tea break. I mixed some rice with tomato sauce to get the two tone color of white and red. But maybe because I worried too much tomato sauce will taste not good, the color seems not very outstanding.......

I fried some nuggets and tamagoyaki for the girls. And some fruits for them too.

First attempt of making the ribbon sushi, looks still ok kah? :P
