(#128) Caterpillar Bento and good news

Inspired by yum yum bento book, I prepared the caterpillar bento for the boys, I cooked the rice in some home-made chicken broth then added fresh parsley and cilantro, so it looks greener. I do this a lot coz my boys love it!!

Inside the box : leftover roasted chicken, sliced cucumbers, orange bell pepper, carrots, grape tomatoes and checkered apple.
Here's the picture of the other one :

Now for the good news :
Today marks the 1st anniversary of my bento blog, I can't believe I've been bento blogging for a year, I still remember how reluctant I was to get started, I was so worry about my English and this and that, but I am glad I did it!! coz I got to know many bento bloggers and get so many ideas, get inspired by them and learn more.
Before I did bento blogging I always post my bentos in my Multiply account which I set it up for my contacts only, so it was very limited and seems to be I was the only bento maker there. So this is great.

And what better way to celebrate the 1st Anniversary than received some bento presents. Special thank you to Kelly, I received the prize I've won on the Awesome Wilton Give Away :

And thank you hubby for getting me this :

 And also this :

And more to come ...LOL ... I hope ...*grind*
Y'all have a fabulous weekend!!! ^_^

You did such a great job! The catapillar is just like the one in the book. Awesome. Glad the goodies arrived! Wilton told me they were out of the fall sprinkles so they sent you another kind. Congrats on your blog. I am a big BIG fan!

Thanks a lot Kelly ^_^ ... I still need to work on my speed here ... took me forever just to make the caterpillar ..LOL..
BTW, the other kind of sprinkles is even better!!! cos there are like 8 kinds in one jar.
