Bento #3: Bunny Love
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Hope you are enjoying this special day with your loved one. As for me, I am enjoying my “ME DAY” today, heading to the gym, meeting friends for lunch, shopping etc. The boy is in camp so we had a pre celebration last Saturday. I made a Bunny Love Bento especially for him that day.
I finally bought some short grained rice from the supermarket and I was so excited that I can finally make some onigiri. Every bento making is a learning experience for me. Not only do I have to draft out the designs, arranging the food items in a box is also a challenge. I spent quite some time trying to arrange the tomatoes, tofu, onigiri and strawberry in a box.
I bought this bunny bento set and it is very simple to use especially for beginners!
Here’s the steps to make the bunny.
1. Put rice into the bunny mould.
2. Cover the lid tightly.
3. Press the bunny rice down from the other side.
4. Make a similar orange bunny rice by adding tomato sauce into the rice.
5. Use the face cutter to punch out the emotions from nori.
6. Paste it onto the bunny.
This is the final product. You can add any other ingredients according to your preference.
Hope the boy loves the bento and hope everyone has a memorable Valentine’s day! 🙂
