Spooky Bento



Making halloween-themed bento is just so much fun. No wonder October is one of my favourite month for bento-ing and blogging :)
For the first day in term 4, I made the Spooky Bento for the kids. The boys love the mummy dogs so much. It made of sausage wrapped with sliced puff pastry. For the eyes, I used cheese and black sesame seeds. The scary fingers are made of puff pastry that was cut into triangle and rolled until it looked like finger shaped. I brushed the fingernails with red food coloring to make it even dramatic. And the boys said it looked so creepy :)
The worm jelly is made of milk jelly that I poured into a bunch of straws and let it set. It looked pretty cool, huh ?



So for my eldest son, I prepared :
1. Mummy dog
2. Creepy "fingers"
3. Corn on the cob
4. A bowl of jelly "worms"
5. Hard boiled egg with cheese and nori "bat"
6. Sultanas
7. "Jack O'Lantern" carrot
8. Rockmelon cuts for recess



And for my youngest son, I prepared :
1. Mummy dog
2. Creepy "fingers"
3. Corn on the cob
4. A bowl of "worms"
5. "Jack O'Lantern" carrot
6. Banana for recess

Bento for Friends


My friend asked me to make vegetarian bento for her doctor. She told me that her doctor often forgets having lunch due to busy schedules. I really admire my friend because she is always so thoughtful to others. And since she is my biggest bento fan, I made one for her as well (the one with sausage on top).



The vegetarian bento box consists of :
1. White steamed rice with nori and carrot flower.
2. Tamagoyaki
3. Corn on the cob
4. Stir fried baby corn and mushroom
5. Stir fried tofu with garlic and chives
6. Broccoli
7. Strawberry punnets

Lady Bug Sandwiches


These cute lady bug sandwiches are so easy to make. I got the idea from Cute Food For Kids blog. You just need circle cookie cutter (I used egg ring instead) and straw. That's it!



Each box consists of :
1. Lady bug sandwich (ham and cheese sandwich, white part of crab stick and nori)
2. Tamagoyaki (rolled egg) with salt and pepper
3. Milk jelly with nata de coco

I prepared banana and watermelon cuts for recess as well.
