Bentolicious #123
Friday is here! Kids are looking forward for the weekend because they will learn how to ride their bicycle. Oh yah! My girl learned before and was just too scared to ride by herself without someone holding the bicycle at the back. We decide that riding bicycle is also a basic skill they have to learn and master. With the upcoming school break next week, they will have a lot of time to practice since hubby will also be on 1-week leave at the same time the kids having their the school break.
Today's bento was simple to prepare and simple to decorate. I made 2 chickens from heart shapes chicken nugget and decorated with food picks, fish ball, nori, carrot, and red part from crab stick. Inside the box : chicken nuggets, stir fry chayote, potatoes in sweet soy sauce, grape tomatoes, flower egg, and noodle & green peas.
Enjoy your weekend with your family!


Is that kerokeropi spoon? The style is back. I remember I used to like kerokeropi when I was a kid (hmm actually still does ^_^)

I love how you decorate the eyes for the chicken...! very nice box too... have a great weekend, Lia

Love the cute chickens! Never got nuggets but it would be fun to try. Can't wait to see pics of your two kids on bikes after the week! Have fun!

Tee hee... these chickens look so comfortable in your bento. Almost like their ready to lay an egg for you.

Hope your kids have fun riding. How fun!

@Indonesia Eats : Yes, that is Kero Keroppi's spoon. It seems Sanrio characters very popular all the time. Thanks Pep!

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! Have a great weekend too with your family ... Hope no traffic jam for this weekend :)

@sherimiya : Thanks a lot Sheri! You can make your own homemade nugget but the one I used was from ready pack. I will take some kids' funny picture hehehe ... :)

@hapabento : Thanks a lot Debra! I'm sure kids will have fun but I'm not sure if someone will cry later :)

absolutely cute!! ^///^ You are sooo creative! Have a nice weekend too! <3

Cute chickens and clever idea to use that bone food picks for the legs! :)
Wish your kids a great time learning to ride! My elder boy is still on his 4-wheels bicycle. Should find some time to train him on 2-wheels yeah :)

@Token : Thanks a lot Token! Have a nice weekend too :)

@Kids Dream Work : Thanks a lot Ai Ping! Saw your bento with the same picks too hehehe ... 4 wheels make them too comfortable. It's okay for the beginning but then have to switch to 2 wheels and let them to learn the balance too :)

Lia, this is so cute and I'm thinking to prepare bento next week. Wish me luck...hehee

@Anncoo : Thanks a lot Ann! Will be waiting for your next bento. I'm sure it will be a great one with yummy foods :)

I love the idea of making a chicken out of a heart shape. Very cute and super creative! Your bentos are always so pretty!

@OhayoBento : Thanks a lot! Can't take the credit because some Japanese bento moms also use heart shapes nugget in their bento :) I was just inspired by them.

good luck teaching A and A to ride, i hope nobody falls down!

the chicks are adorable, i espcially love the cute eyelashes on the girl. the bone picks for feet are a good idea too!

What a great idea using the heart shape nuggets to make chicken!

Another beautiful lunch!!

eeeK! I love this one - nuggets into chicks...and the expressions on the left chick is my favourite :)

@megan : Thanks a lot Megan! Glad to read your comment again. Hubby bought helmet and elbow & knee caps for their protection ... But yeah hope nobody falls down :)

@Angeleyes : Thanks a lot Alice!

@notabrownbag : Thanks a lot Mils!

What a sweet bento! I love the little birdies :D

Good luck to your girl on learning to ride! Kidlet was always scared too and did not ride without his training wheels until 1st grade which everyone else thought was too late. But I didn't mind :D

the chick design for the chicken nuggets is very cute :)

Very creative! You used chicken nuggets for the chicken :).

Ah so sweet... The chicks look like love birds :D. Hope my best for the kids, jadi inget jaman2 belajar naik sepeda, sungguh menyengsarakan karena biru2 dimana-mana hehehe

@Jenn : Thanks a lot Jenn! I just don't want to push them so much for this one. But I'm sure they can make it soon or later ... So just have fun in the process :)

@noobcook : Thanks a lot Wiffy! So sweet of you :)

@Cooking Gallery : Thanks a lot! Chicken for chicken, how cool is that? hehehe ... :)

@tatabonita : Thanks a lot Ta! Zaman kita belajar naik sepeda nggak pakai pelindung Ta ... sekarang udah lengkap gears-nya jadi nggak usah takut biru2 lagi :)

So cute! I love all the things you can do with a heart shape.

These birdie sweeties are so cute...must smooch!! Lovely and precious, Lia!

I love your bentos. So imaginative and creative, even when you think they aren't anything special! They really are :)
I always struggle with mine. Breadcrumbs/fried things always go soggy by the time I get to eat them. Plus sometimes the rice dried out or it's just bland and tasteless by the time I get to eat them :(
