Bentolicious #074
Kids' mid-test is starting today until Friday with 2 subjects everyday. I wish all the best for both of them, hope they can answer all the questions correctly. Today, I put small portion of rice in this bento because the kids would have their lunch at home during this week. School will be dismissed 12pm during mid-test week. I made bear from half of boiled egg decorated with nori and crab stick for the face. I soaked the boiled egg in the light soy sauce mixed with water for 10 minutes. Inside this box : rice burger (put BBQ burger meat between 2 layers rice), pork sausages, corns, green beans, edamame, carrots, fried tofu, and strawberries.


The cute bear looks like he's made of fine porcelain! I also like your flower details on the sausages.

@hapabento : Thanks a lot Debra for your quick and sweet comment (^.^)

Love all the colorful details and the carrot cuts. Bear egg is perfectly done, of course. Good luck to A & A! I'm sure they will sail through easily!

@sherimiya : Thanks a lot Sheri, very appreciate it! Carrot cuts was using the tulip shapes cutter (^.^)

The bear looked so perfect!!! YOur dyeing skill is very good Lia! Mine always have patches whenever I dye those eggs!

This Rilakkuma is so cute! I love the ideas you always have. Hihi, always cute ^-^
Good luck to your kids. I am sure they will do well ;)

@Angeleyes : Thanks a lot for both comment and wishes! The secret of dyeing egg is that you have to soaked the whole egg into the liquid. If the liquid just 1/2 or 1/3 then the color will not even. Hope this tips will help :)

@Lil'chan : Thanks a lot Lil'chan! I didn't realize the brown bear looks like Rilakkuma hehehe ... ;)

The cute bear looks like from a mould not an egg. Clever way to change the colour from soaking. Now I learned something new. Thanks Lia.

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot too Ann!

I love the colour of this half egg! It has come out looking like porceline/ceramics, I think, beautiful finish! Good luck for the kids exams!
