Bentolicious #212
Kids are celebrating Independence Day at school today, so no lesson for today. They will just have fun to join different competitions. I can't wait to hear kids' story about the competitions later on in the car. Two days ago, I was told that the pot luck lunch for each class had been cancelled which means I need to prepare bento for today's lunch because the kids will go home at 2PM. I made a little duck swimming with its red swimming ring just to get cooling down a bit from the hot weather. I used yellow egg sheet to make the little duck, red parts were from red paprika, orange part was from carrot, and the wave was made of thin white egg sheet that I teared it up and made it looks like wave. It didn't look so convincing, the wave part I meant but I was happy with it. Inside the box : SPAM cooked with mushroom and carmelized onions, tamagoyaki, and stir fry green bean with red paprika. Happy Friday everyone! Wish everyone a wonderful weekend ahead :)

@London's-beauty : Thanks a lot! Glad that you like it :)

@prince n princess mum : Thanks a lot! Need more ideas for next week bento :)

I hope the duck has fun swimming! What did you use to make those teeny tiny dots on his nose? The detail is unbelievable!

@OhayoBento : Thanks a lot Heather! The tiny dots were actually tiny squares that I cut from nori. They were so tiny so looked like tiny dots :)

The colors you make are so intense, and the sheets so smooth! Very artistic. I know how the duckie feels; there's nothing better than bobbing around in the cool water on a hot summer day! Hope the kids had fun in the games!

@sheri fujihara chen : Thanks Sheri! I love the red color from the red paprika. It's so vibrant. If you live nearby then I will ask you to take me swimming. Kids had fun with the games. Gladly to put extra t-shirt in their bag :)

This is too cute! LOVE the expression of the ducky! :D

@Lyn : Thanks a lot Lyn!

Oh Lia I love the little duck, he is so sweet! :)
