Bentolicious #124
Everyone in the house is completely in the holiday mood now. The school break will start on Thursday and hubby will be off from the office tomorrow afternoon. Some of the friends who celebrate Idul Fitri have go back to their hometown for family gathering. Usually Jakarta will be a bit quite and no traffic jam during this time... woohoo! Something that I am looking forward to. We don't have any plan to leave the town for the holiday. So we will just have fun with friends and family. Sadly, kids will have their mid-test right after the school break ... so I think they will need to review their lessons too during the school break.
Today's bento was inspired by a pack of new chopsticks that I bought from Daiso yesterday. Little green doggies were made of edamame mixed rice. I will put the tutorial on how to made them during the school break when I don't have any bento to make. I used food picks for the ears, easy and quick. I remember reading one book in Kinokuniya bookstore long time ago with this dog had a leaf shaped ears but I can't recall the name of the character. Inside the box : steamed egg tofu with garlic oil, stir fry carrots & snow peas, grape tomatoes, and lemongrass stir fry pork.


I miss the feeling of eid, but eid is not the same anymore since 9 years ago.

Btw, very healthy choice with edamame.

Omg, SO cute! I wanna make edamame doggies!! Love this one so so much Lia!

@Indonesia Eats : Thanks a lot Pep! Why is that so different feeling after 9 years? Is that after you moved to Canada?

I got to know your blog from your guest post at Pig Pig's... I just have to compliment you on your sweet looking blog. Love all the cartoon caricatures - so homely and of course your bentos are amazing... Your family is so lucky!

Aw, such cute puppies - love their ears! Hope you enjoy your holiday.

I think that doggies's name is *Ocha-ken* (tea dog). Your ochakens are insanely cute and well-duplicated.
I hope your family all have a lovely holiday!!
