(# 262) Roasted Beef Bear Bento

Up for tomorrow's bento I prepared some leftovers, I made roasted beef with pop overs and gravy for dinner tonight.
I packed the roasted beef in a bear silicone cup and topped with bear cheese cut out.
There are also some strawberries, steamed broccoli and carrot.

I also packed some pop corn for snack, I found those cute containers at michaels :P

Happy Tuesday all ^__^

(# 261) Fried rice Nautical Bento

Hello my bento pals,
It's been a while since my last post, January goes so fast and bit crazy for us, hubby's birthday, kids got sick and so on.

But today I manage to make bento for them ^__^

It's simple fried rice with shredded chicken and veggies, next to it are some Mandarin orange, fresh strawberries and mini sweet yellow bell pepper. I put ship flag, ship cheese cut out, carrot anchor and carrot whale to keep up with the theme :) Enjoy!

I topped the rice with bunny carrot, using nori for facial details.
Next to the rice I arranged some English cucumbers, steamed romanesco and Granny smith apples slices with some pomegranate seeds.

I also packed some plain yogurt with honey on the bottom and pomegranate on top, for snack time :)

(# 259) Chicken Potstickers Snowflakes Bento

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are all had a great holidays!
Yesterday we had a little tease of snows, big flakes and last quite sometimes but they melted right away,  what a tease for we haven't got any snow this winter.
This is my first bento this year, but I wasn't pay attention when I edited the pictures so it still has 2012 on the watermark ... and I am too lazy to fix it, I am now having Garfield eyes and just can't stay on the computer for too long.

Today's bento featuring some chicken potstickers and Vietnamese rolls with some snowflakes decorations, big boy loves it! but B isn't too crazy about the Vietnamese rolls, anyway here are the pictures :

I made the snowflakes using snowflakes cookie cutters I got from amazon, originally designed for fondant cake decoration, but hey it works for bento too, matter of fact I am using tortilla for the snows, because I am out of white cheese, came out perfect! and I am happy.
Along with potstickers there are also some romanesco, I was so excited when I spotted this at my local grocery store, grabbed 2 heads and pay almost 7 dollars ... I think it's overpriced but no surprised at all for this is such a rare items. I should try to grow some for next summer.

Inside the Vietnamese rolls are some cilantro, julienne carrots and jicama, thin sliced cucumbers, egg omelet, and rice noodles. I omitted the mint and thai basil because my boys do not like it, they are fine with cilantro though.
Happy Wednesday everyone!!
