Bentolicious #068
Today's bento was pretty simple, it didn't take too long to prepare. I mentioned before about B.O.M.B's Green Baran Challenge for this month organized by Debra from Hapa Bento. So, my 'green' baran for today was steamed broccoli with carrot flowers on the top. The little twins princes were made of rice and decorated with the egg sheet, red part of crab stick and nori. Inside was stuffed with pork mince. On the top section are fruits (strawberries, kumquat, grapes) and cucumber & pork sausages in pink silicone food cup. I've got the new food picks last week and posted the picture on my Twitter. As a 'bento addict' I don't know when I will able to stop collecting all bento stuffs. No regret though because I'm really enjoying it.


the prince are adorable. must have missed your twitter post - where did u get your stuff?

Adore the sweet little princes! I also like the carrot flowers upon the broccoli, it's a favorite effect for me! I almost can't bear to look at the cute picks, because I will be consumed with desire for them! Little flowers are soooo fantastic!! And new leaf shape, like a heart *sigh*
Thank you for bringing more sunshine to my day with your sweet bento, Lia!

Love your bentos! So cute. May I ask what type of punch you use for the eyes and mouth. I have several punches, but they seem so big. The eyes and mouth look out of proportion to the onigiri. :-) Thank you for sharing.
