(#122) Think PINK Bento

Before I start with my Pink bento, I'd love to share this good news that got me all excited over the weekend and it makes me feel so much better right away ^_^. I WON this Awesome wilton giving away from Kelly (Thanks Kelly!!), she hosts THE CROUCHING MOTHER, HIDDEN TODDLER, you can read details HERE.

Okay, now to the bento business, after seeing so many friends posting their pink bentos and see pink here and there, I am proudly join the event of Breast Cancer Awareness hosted by BentoBlog, Please join me with this event, you can read more details HERE. I also dedicated this bento post to a close friend of mine who has survived from breast cancer last year.

I made this mini Vietnamese rolls with scramble egg, rice noodle, and lettuce inside, I seasoned the egg so my boys wont need any sauce. I tried to dye the wrapper with some bit's broth but did not come out as pink as I thought it would. Maybe I put a little too much water into the bit. It was kind a disappointing, but it is what it is. My original plan was to serve the rolls with some leftover chicken, but then there would not be any pink on the box, so I changed my mind. I boiled some egg with  leftovers bit's broth (Bad choice!!!), the result is also disappointing, so I decided to put just a view drops of red food coloring, and I think I get some kind a pink that satisfied me.

The rest are steamed broccoli, grape tomatoes, green grapes, sugar snaps and kiwi berries.

When I get all the foods done, I realized that I do not have any pink boxes, then I checked my food picks collection I could not find the pink note food picks that I have. I must've give it away to a friend of mine who has a girl. But I am glad I still have some other pink color food picks.
Back then I thought I'd never make any pink bento since I do not have a daughter. So I am so glad to joint this even coz this probably gonna be the only chance for me to make pink bento.
Y'all have a blessings Monday!
