Bentolicious #087
I wanted so much to use the Mickey silicone food cups so that I decided to make this Disney theme bento. I took out the smaller food cup after the photo shoot because I couldn't close the lid tightly. I turned the bigger food cup so the ears part was inside the box. Andrew is still staying at home. Last night my husband brought him to his pediatrician and luckily he could sleep well last night with no fever. He is still coughing and having a lot of phlegm so I need have to give him home nebulizer therapy and a lot of drink.

Inside the box : rice balls (flattened on the top) decorated with crab stick, boiled quail egg, mickey head shapes pork patties, carrot & corn flowers, pea pods, and mash sweet potatoes.

Debra from Hapa Bento is organizing a Japanistic Bento Box Contest. You can read all the details on her blog. Prepare your 'Garden Theme' bento now, you may enter up until midnight PDT April 23, 2010.

Lia this bento looks so delicious. The whole Disney theme works well here.

Glad that Andrew is on his way to getting better. It's so hard when our kids are sick.

Be well.

You certainly have lots and lots of cute Mickey and Minnie in your bento, even the food picks! :D

@Rachel Hei : Thanks a lot Rachel! It just fun to use the matching bento stuffs hehehehe :)

sounds like andrew is slowly but surely getting better... so glad to hear that!

this bento is adorable, love the matching flower shapes and the corn centers, and 3 different kinds of mickey-head shapes too! did the pork patties come that way, or did you shape them?

wonderful work lia!

@megan : Thanks a lot Megan! He is still coughing but not as much as yesterday. I made the pork patties by myself and shaped them with the same mickey cutter that I used to cut crab stick :)

Cool bento! Really sorry to hear your son is unwell, and sending best wishes for a speedy recovery x x

Adorable! I love the mickey theme!

I hope Andrew feels better soon, poor little guy!

Sending Andrew lots of "feel better soon" thoughts! Darling bento with warm shades of pink and red that I just love!

The way you cut the eggs gives me an idea to do the same for my daughter's lunch. I normally just give her the entire shelled egg. Sometimes she doesn't eat it at all.

Sorry your little boy is feeling yucky. I hope he starts feeling better soon!

Cute bento, I like all the little flowers. :)

@Bento Box/Asfora : Thanks a lot Asfora!
