Garfield and Odie bento 28

CP reminded me that the lunch sheet was approaching expiry date so I decided to do a Garfield bento since the lunch sheet has just the right "orange" colour. Did a sketch of Garfield and Odie then trace out on another piece of paper to make a cut out figure. After that use the paper figure placed on top of the lunch sheet to cut out the shape of Garfield and Odie.

So here's cheeky Garfield gasping poor Odie, that's why Odie is green in colour(lack of O2) rather than brown...LOL! Actually I don't have a brown lunch sheet!

Wishing everyone a HAPPY and OX-PICIOUS CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!

Eggy friends bento meal no 27

Made some kyaraben or charaben ie cute quail eggs bento on my new Mickey and Minnie mouse bento box from 100Yen shop. As you can see from the bento meal the eggs are coloured yellow using tumeric/kunyit powder, brown from dark soya sauce and pink with purple dragon fruit all natural ingredients coloring so it's safe for consumption. Surrounded by blanched carrot, mini corn, cherry tomatoes and mini chinese "pak choy" plus coral lettuce. Expression on the egg face, flowers and stars from punched out nori/seaweed to beautify the bento meal. Oh ya blushing rosy cheeks with a drop of chilli sauce too. Lastly to complete the bento meal with some picks..two semi quavers, mini hearts plus tiny mickey head. Ta..da...finito!

Pooh+Kitty pineapple tarts bento 26

After moulding and before baking Winnie the Pooh and Hello Kitty pineapple tarts.
Tried out the Winnie the Pooh and Hello Kitty vegy cutter to make a mould for pineapple tarts. Kind of sticky the dough so a bit difficult to get a perfect shaped face or maybe I should have added more flour but it might make the pastry too dry. Anyway the conventional method of doin the tarts is much faster. Lol!

End results after baking the pineapple tarts.
