Bentolicious #049

I'm blank today ... But I still keep my promise to my kids to continue my sushi theme bento for this week, I made tamago nigiri for today's snack bento. There are many types of nigiri sushi but I chose tamago nigiri because it is simple to prepare, plus the kids love tamagoyaki.  Inside this box : ebi soosu, carrot + pea pod, raspberry + kumkuat and enokitake. Well, I think nothing spectacular for this bento :)


these little bowtied bears are so cute! the fruit skewers are pretty too, and the pea pod leaves between the crinkle-cut carrots are a lovely, surprising choice.

tamago nigiri is a great choice for bento because it's not as vulnerable to bacteria as raw fish.

another stunning bento for your lucky kids!!

I think this bento is definitly spectacular! You always inspire me with your little details, that make big differences in your lunches. Your kids are really lucky to have someone who takes the time to make such lovely bento for them each day!

@megan : Thanks a lot Megan for your very encouraging comment! I agree with you on the raw fish nigiri. Can't take that risk for the kids.

@BentoBeginner : Thanks a lot for the sweet comment! Sometimes I wonder when will the kids get bored with my bento hehehehe ... :)

WOW! Really cute!

The bento looks tidy and nice. Lia, do you have any post which shows or tells how to make tamago nigiri?

Like everyone else, tamago is my boy's favorite as well. He considers it dessert, hehe!
When he see this one he will wonder why I can't make such a cute delicious one for him, uh oh...

Hi Lia,
Your "blank" is very brilliant!

@Vanessa : Thanks Vanessa! I don't have any post to show how to make the tamago nigiri. But it's pretty easy, you just need to make tamagoyaki and then slice it. And you can use nigiri mold for the rice or just mold it with your hand. Tadaaa ... ;)

@sherimiya : Thanks a lot Sheri! As long as a healthy one I think just let him to consider it as a dessert hehehe :)

@hapabento : Thanks Debra! You are so sweet :)

These are just so adorable! :)

@Kashmirkat : Thanks a lot :)

The tamago so cute! I like the detail a lot, especially the cute ribbons! Totally agree with hapabento, your 'blank' is really brilliant! :)

@Kids Dream Work : Thanks a lot! Your sweet comment is really power me up :)

What a shame, I thought tamago nigiri is the egg (@.@) hehehe, I actually want to ask how to make tamagoyaki (^o^).
