Bentolicious #096
Start a new week again and felt like 2 days for the weekend passed so quickly. And now is the time to get back to the routines. For the next 2 weeks, the kids will be busy reviewing their lessons for the final exams. So many quizzes will be given as I saw on their school agenda. I will need to sit together with my boy, help him to review. But my girl will be on her own.

Today I just prepared a quick and simple bento. Made 2 butterflies from egg sheet, crab stick, and cucumber. All were done with various cutters, saved me so much time. The rice was layered with the curry tuna in the middle. And I put flower shapes carrots and baby corns, sauteed garlic asparagus, and fried Indonesian fish cake (called otak otak). The tomato sauce was separated in the small sauce container.


Really cute and quick with cutters Lia! Love the antenna too! Butterflies are one of my favorite shapes too :)
Good luck to your kids! Funny how different they are; your boy maybe is more distractable than your girl :o)
The weekend flew by over here too! My bento for Monday is not even worth taking a picture! Have a great day!

Lia, I love that flower cut. Did you made it with cutter or knife? I lost my flower cutter, need to buy it again :(

Hope your kids will pass all of those quizzes..

@sherimiya : My boy can't sit down and concentrate for more than 15 minutes. He will start walking here and there, that's why I have to sit with him hehehehe :) And Sheri, I think you can figure out all cutters that I used. Thanks a lot Sheri for your kind comment! You always so quick (^.^)

@mushima hawani : Thanks a lot Wani! Carrot flowers were cut by cutter first and then shaped it a little bit with knife :)

semoga dapet nilai bagus semua ya mbak...bunga wortelnya bagus deh... ^^

Your flowers are amazing and the butterflies are just too cute. I can't imagine doing this and saying this is a quick one! What a talent, even if you did use cutters! :D
