Bentolicious #127
Rainy day bento for today. I think I was kind of hoping today would be raining after a hot day yesterday. At least it is raining in my bento ... The green frog was made from green and yellow egg sheets, the eyes part  was from kamaboko, cheek from red part of crab stick, and nori. Rain drops were made of chayote and I used spinach leaf & spinach stem for the umbrella. I was about to use daikon for the rain drops but forgot I didn't have any left in my fridge. Since the only transparent veggie in my fridge was chayote, so I used it to make the rain drops.
Inside the other tier box :  strawberries, kumquats, sweet corns, spinach tamagoyaki, stir fry Chinese cabbage, and sauteed prawns with sweet soy sauce and onion. My spinach tamagoyaki was a little bit brownish instead of yellow because I put soy sauce when mixed the egg. I didn't put sugar and mirin this time but just soy sauce and a little bit of salt.


So cute kero kero in this lime green box! Love his lily pad umbrella. Hope for rain for you!

Aw, the frog is so cute it is difficult to think about eating it :)

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Karaimame! We are entering wet season here, should be a lot of raining. But sometimes the weather can go extremely hot like yesterday. Too bad for the frog, his destiny is to be eaten (^.^)

Aw, what a cute little rain frog! I really like the idea of spinach tamogoyaki. Do you mix the spinach in with the egg or put it on top of the first/second layer when cooking?

you're so funny lia, wishing for rain, usually people wish the reverse! i like the rain too, though; nice break from the heat. your rainy frog scene is adorable, and the spinach-salty-soy tamagoyaki sounds delicious!

You are amazing!!! Absolutely love it!!

CUTE frog!!! great bento stunning picture as always ....
You should consider writing a bento book, I'd definitely it ^_^

@Kuusou : Thanks a lot Kuusou! I actually mixed the spinach with the egg to make the spinach tamagoyaki :)

Hi Lia Chen,
Chance upon your blog some time back and had been following it since. :)
Totally love the bento you make! :)
I am also into "Bentoing", but not as "pro" as you yet. haha!
How do you make those cute cartoon characters in your bento?

Malang has been being poured by lots of rain, wanna switch? Hehehe. Love the GREEN frogie happily sing for the rain :D. I always adore your perfect egg sheets and your skill in cutting them :D

@anna2003 : Thanks a lot Karen! Happy Mooncake Festival too for you and your family ... have fun with the lanterns :)

@I love blogging! : Thanks a lot! I am not a 'pro' really ... learn from trial and error :p Cute characters idea are usually coming from everywhere ... kids, their story book, coloring book, and from other bento maker too. So when the idea come just do some sketching and think about how I will apply it in the bento :)

@tatabonita : Hi Tata! I don't mind to switch with you, I do love rain as long as it doesn't cause flood. Ah your favorite color again, so I think the frog will be your buddy then hehehe ... Thanks a lot Ta!

Bento LOVE! Utterly charming, your style is wonderful and makes me smile with joy, Lia!
