Bento Made In Year 2012 (Part I)

Bento # 26, 27 Garden Snail Bento  

After stop for bento-making about 7 months++, I get back into it again...:P... this year onwards, I need to wake up early, in order to get done the bento for my elder girl who's starting her kindergarten life....she's pretty enjoyed the bento bring along to school, even though school do provide kids with foods....teachers and kids enjoyed seeing all her bento too..... ^0^....

this is the 1st bento made in year 2012, and I had prepared extra set for my little young girl, excited seeing her sister bento... at the end I myself finished most of the food, haha....

the snail spiral shell was made from sliced light wheat bread rolled with cheese and topped with cheese flowers.... its head was mini sausage with nori nose and smiling expression...the tentacles were uncooked spaghetti, the eyespots were bread and nori.... and a flower bread with cheese on top was added in.... 2 strawberries and some broccoli added in too for each lunch box... :)

2012年,柔柔开始上幼儿园了。。。我也必须早起为她准备便当了。。。她会先吃学校为孩子们准备的食物, 再享受妈妈的便当。。。幼儿园里的老师们小朋友们都好喜欢看她的便当, 有些老师告诉我, 他们都期待今天妈妈又为柔柔准备什么款式的便当啊!。。。。我听了, 自然开心咯。。。不过,不是每天都会有便当的, 因为有时候我很烂睡, 有时候没点子, 有时候没材料。。。 哈哈

“花园里的蜗牛” 。。。这是2012年里的第一份便当。。。。 我也准备了多一份, 好让那个馋嘴的小女儿享受。。。 到最后还是我帮她清理完大部分的食物。。。哈哈

蜗牛的壳是面包和芝士片卷成的, 再加上芝士片花朵。。。 头的部分是迷你香肠, 嘴巴 & 鼻子是海苔按压出来的。。。 它的的触角是意大利面条, 眼睛是面包 & 紫菜。。。再加进一朵面包花, 花朵型的芝士片在上方。。。。最后, 排入2颗草莓 & 一些西兰花。。。

Bento #28 The Lion King Bento

Is a lion or tiger? My girl told me that it is tiger!! haha... I told her there is no tiger stripes on the character, so it is lion... she accepted it, even though it is not so looked like lion!  

I had placed some green leaf as the base, followed by a piece of chinese traditional cake or "kueh", called XiPan...and decorated it into lion character... some strawberries, cucmber and a mini sausage with funny expression.... a mini waffle for her too... she was happy then...

狮子还是老虎? 柔柔说 “ 妈咪,是老虎。”。。。 哈哈, 我回答说 “ 可是它身上没有老虎的斑纹喔, 应该是狮子啦。” 她还是欣然接受啦, 因为她看到喜爱的零食了, 维华饼!!

这只狮子王没有平时的霸气, 今天变得有点可爱了呐。。。 

Bento #29 Fish Bento

A very simple & time saving bento...
the 'fat' fishes were kueh bahulu, the fish scales were punched out from nori, eyes and tails were cheese and nori... and decorated their mouth with food picks...
the 'skinny' fishes were turnip and nori...and I had added in cucumber slices and a small piece of boiled corn....

"肥肥"鱼是传统烘鸡蛋糕, “苗条”鱼是芜菁(sengkuang)。。。。再加上黄瓜片 & 玉蜀黍。。。

Bento #30 Shaun The Sheep Bento

Timmy Time!! I had transformed the steamed bun into sheep, and decorated with some broccoli as the grassland... some mango cubes & strawberries , and decorated the lunch box with some cute food picks...

“小小羊蒂米” 来咯!
蒂米的身躯是馒头演变成的,头的部份有芝士片 & 海苔。。。西兰花变成了大草原。。。水果有芒果 & 草莓。。。。

Bento #31 Ladybug Bento

I got this inspiration from Susanyuen's blog....
I had transformed the round shaped sandwich into ladybug, cheese elytra with nori spots on it... some golden & green kiwis and a piece of mini waffles...

瓢虫的点子来自Susanyuen的部落格。。。。瓢虫下方是涂了果酱的圆形面包, 上方是芝士片 & 海苔。。。 排入了一些两色奇异果, 还有一片迷你维华饼 。。。。

Bento #118 Morning Blooming Flowers Bento

since no idea what I can do for the balance of the mini buns, I just simply decorated them with flowers, looked like flowers blooming in the morning....hope the morning sun will brings you a new fresh day ^0^....

2 mini buns decorated with some crabmeat strips, cheese flowers, and black sesame... sun gold kiwi & green kiwi as fruits for today, a tomato and some green leaf to fill up the lunch box.... that's all, a really simple & time saving bento... haha

今天想着没有可爱的点子, 就随便来个超级简单的吧!重要的是先解决掉剩下的迷你红豆面包, 呵呵。。。。。

随意地把 “ 早晨盛开的花朵” 贴上算了。。。。再加些黑芝麻在花朵上。。。
水果有2色奇异果。。。 为了填满空位, 我就加了樱桃小番茄 & 生菜。。。搞掂 ^0^

希望来临的周末能整理好2012年的便当资料 , 再来分享。。。
