Bento #24: Kitty Love Bento
Hello world! It has been a really busy and short week. Trying to finish my work, as well as preparing for my Chiang Mai trip this Thursday! I was supposed to do a giveaway today but my broandband crashed last night so I have no internet access (except for the iPhone) and doing a big blog post is not feasible.
So some readers dropped me an email asking how do I choose a bento box? I am not exactly an expert here but here are some points I consider.
– First: think of what ingredients will be used first. If you are packing this for your kid, you probably have to think of the calories and nutritional value of whatever ingredients you are going to put into the box.
– Second: Find a box which is able to fit the ingredients. Make sure the box is tightly sealed, because you don’t want some teriyaki sauce to drip onto the textbooks. And make sure it sits upright in the school bag, do not turn the bento to its side.
– Third: Choose a design you / your kid love!
If you are packing some fried items…
Make sure your fried items has cooled down before packing it into your bento. This will help prevent the warmth turning into condensation turning into moisture turning into a soggy meal.
I haven’t been doing bento for some time and today, I am going to share with a cute Kitty bento which I made. It is a super simple bento and I am using the kitty cutter which I bought last year. Basically this cutter can be used for bread or rice or ham or cheese. I think I have made a bread kitty before using the same cutter.
Anyway, I was crazy over teriyaki chicken for a moment and wanted to have this with a plate of Japanese rice. Hence this idea came. It makes my lunch more appetizing and of course, I can’t to eat them initially. You must be wondering why do I have tomatoes in most of the bentos? That is because I have the habit of eating tomatoes everyday. Small ones or big ones doesn’t matter, I need to eat tomatoes for at least one of the meals!
MY BENTO! CUTE ANOT! HAHA! I wanted to do cupid lah, but didn’t succeed, so I have two hearts and a bow at the bottom.
