Bentolicious #132
Back to Sanrio character bento. For today's bento, I chose Hello Kitty to put in the new 2 tiers pink box that arrived yesterday from Bento&co. I bought the white one previously and just love it. Perfect size for my kids' lunch. This bento was made for Audrey and Andrew still has his lunch from school catering. I made the Hello Kitty from the colored egg sheets except for the white and yellow part. I used food coloring to get the red egg sheet and dark soya sauce to get the brown egg sheets. The hard part was to cut those brown outlines, have to do it slowly and carefully. This time although all the egg sheets are edible, I put wax paper on the top of the rice so if my girl don't want to eat it she can easily remove the Hello Kitty by moving the wax paper from the top of the rice.

Inside the bento : tamagoyaki, pan fried pangasius fish fillet, broccoli & cheese, and sauteed potato flowers in dark soya sauce.

I linked this bento to 'What's For Lunch' every Wednesday at Shannon's blog.
You can join the fun too!

I took the picture of Andrew while he wrote something on Audrey's cast yesterday. He wrote carefully because he didn't want to hurt his sister.


sorry to see your girl in a cast. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

Such an amazing Hello Kitty made out of egg sheet! You are so talented, Lia! And that is very sweet of your boy to be so careful about signing his sister's cast. I had a cast on my arm when I was 12 and it was a memorable experience. I hope she heals well and quickly.

Great job, as always! Beautiful bento- I love the flowers!

Sorry Lia, I missed some of your posts recently due to my time being occupied and I was sick too.
Love that Hello Kitty and wish your girl speed recovery!

I admire your patient to do the outlining Lia..I wouldn't have so MUCH patience LOL.

Wishing Audrey a speedy recovery! Tell her that I broke my arm when I was her age and I'm fine now...can still make bentos! :) Bless you and your wonderful family.

@hapabento : Thanks a lot Deb! I will tell her that. Glad that is not her right arm, otherwise she will be in trouble at school. She used to write with both hands but now only use right hand to write :)
