(#124) Mummy Bento

Yesterday was sunny here in Bellingham, so I prepared this mummy bento early in the evening then took pictures right away ^_^
I am an amateur bento-er, so most of the time I preparing things at night, that way I can enjoy myself and have FUN doing it. I sometimes try to prepare bentos in the morning but all I can do is only make a very simple sandwich, I have to work my speed up.
And still I don't like to do bento in the morning since I have to get the boys ready for school plus still taking care of one and a half baby boy who is very active.


Inside the box :
Nasi uduk/Indonesian fragrant rice, its a jasmine rice cooked in coconut milk with some Indonesian bay leaf, lemon-grass and some other spices.
I shaped the rice by hand and wrapped it with white egg sheet (I omit the yolk).
And mummy has his buddy there, I do not now what to call, but he looks friendly ...LOL
On the next box I pack sliced of cucumber, peeled tangerine, yellow and green beans, mixed baby tomatoes, yellow carrots and kiwi berries.

This below picture is bento for D, he said he wants mummy's buddy to be scarier, I tried to make Frankenstein, but failed, I could not come up with a good idea for his ears .... but D still like it and he said it looks scarier.


Tomorrow I am not sure weather I can pack them another Halloween bento or just simple sandwich, I have to do some preps for Soupy Friday, its a fund raising program at the school where parents can join their kids to enjoy a dollar bowl of Soup. I'll make some soto ayam, it's Indonesian style chicken soup.... yumm!!!

haha very cute ... err, ghoulish? Such a good idea to. I need to give making egg sheets a try. They intimidate me! I read just recently that if you mix in some avocado you can make green?
