Bentolicious #154
My first Christmas theme bento begins with the Santa Claus laundry. He is getting ready for Christmas and so are we. Couldn't get so much light this morning, so the picture is a bit dark. Andrew was sick from yesterday so he is staying at home. He woke up at the same time with me this morning. Later he just went back and forth between the living room and the kitchen to do the 'quality control' for this bento LOL :D He kept saying easy to me and he wanted to help to make this bento. I gave him one egg to brake in a small bowl and he literally broke it and spilled half in the small bowl and the other half on the kitchen table. This morning my level of patient was very high, so I just tidied up for him. After that what he did was supervising me when I cut the egg sheet free hand with my X-Acto knife. Oh boy! He was the boss this morning in the kitchen.
Inside the other box : braised chicken & potatoes, stir fried baby bok choy & fish cake, and small mandarin orange.

Linked this bento to What's For Lunch every Wednesday.
Please link your bento too and share it with everyone :)


That is so so so nice! Love it.

hahhahaa...very nice laundry...but I don't think they will dried up this afternoon. I am looking for a sun too this morning :)
Get well soon for Andrew

Even Santa has to do laundry, hehe!
So glad it seems Andrew is doing better, well enough to supervise you in the bentomaking. Hope he continues to improve!
Can't even begin to think of Christmas, but your bento gets me in the mood already!

aw, this is too cute.

Oh mine, these are so cute! All the laundry miniatures! Love them! Ok Santa, better get dressed up and start working! :D

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! I think you are right, have to wait until tomorrow then :)

@sherimiya : hahaha ... Yes, he has too in order to set a good example for the elves. Yesterday, Andrew has been whining a lot. And today I think he just bored at home without his sister. So I became his target :p But the fever is gone today, so I'm glad.

Your Santa Laundry is amazing! I am in awe of your talent! It is so cute that Andrew is so interested in his bento! Hope he's feeling better!

@Lyndsey : Thanks a lot Lyndsey! My kids always curious if I'm working at the kitchen. They loves to help and to ask questions :)

That is great! I really like that laundry. Very creative.

Aih! You were doing laundry in your children's bento box? Oh my ...

Those are so cute!

so cute! this could be a holiday card!!

This is so adorable! My kids like to help break eggs also, always a mess. Can't believe you do this free-hand...

@leeswammes : Thanks a lot!

@Jun @ IndoChine Kitchen : hahaha ... Thanks a lot Jun!

@Mrs. P : Thanks a lot Mrs. P! It's a great idea actually to send our bento picture as a Christmas card ;)

@Sonja : Thanks a lot Sonja!

Awesome, what a adorable Christmas bento idea, Lia! As usual your inspirations and beautiful creations lead the pack!

Love the idea! Lol! Now we know santa wears polka boxers ! Haha...

This is so cute and nice!

OMG.... it's sooo cute. Everything is so detail, the socks, the santa costume, the hat and the clothes pin especially...

Great Job!!

May I know how u fixed the clothes pin so that it won't messy up while carrying?

@bentobird : Thanks a lot Jenn! Excited to see your beautiful Christmas bento too :)

@anna2003 : Thanks a lot Karen! Ups ... Santa's secret revealed LOL :D

@prince n princess mum : Thanks a lot! As usual always so kind with your comment :)

@Vanessa : Thanks a lot Vanessa! I actually made the yellow egg sheet a bit thick so I could attach dry somen at the back and stuck it on the rice. This way, the pins won't move at all ;)

Wow you are fantastic! I absolutely love this one. It's got to be my most favourite bento ever! U make it sound so easy... but I don't have skilled fingers like you.

I think this is going to be the coolest Christmas bento of the whole year!! Not only is it an wonderfully creative idea but you are so talented at creating egg sheet magic!

I guess this settles the question of whether Santa wears boxers or briefs. Although I would have died laughing if you had put tightie whities on the clothes line. Love this bento, Lia! So cute!

Ahahahah .. this is funny and cute bento!! love it ...
You are a very happy and patient mama!! your kids are the luckiest!!

Wow such a cute bento!!

(Giggle!).. so cute! Love the little socks. : ) How do you make your egg sheets Lia? Hope Andrew is feeling better. Anyone able to give his 'artistic direction' can't be too too sick right? ; )

cute!!! Early Merry X'mas to you~God bless xx

@SIG : Thanks a lot Debra! I believe you can too, just try it :)

@OhayoBento : Thanks a lot Heather for your kind words! I feel comfortable to use egg sheet to decorate my kids' bento. So much fun :)

@Sonoma Bento : Thanks a lot Michelle! I hope I didn't make Santa angry to reveal his secret LOL :D

@Just a MOM : Thanks a lot Lin! I am lucky too to have them in my life :)

@Mi : Thanks a lot Mi!

@Chantale : Thanks a lot Chantale! I put some drops of red food coloring into the egg mixture. You can find the tips to make colored egg sheet on the tips section. You can also use crab stick to get red and white if you are not comfortable to use food coloring. And hahaha ... I agree with you on the last part :D

@My Taste Heaven : Thanks a lot!

cute! cute! cute!!!!!
I wish I had 1/4 of your skill :))

@ruthwijaya : Thanks a lot Ruth! Very kind of you to say that. I'm sure you can make an awesome bento too :)
