Today is the Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Mooncake Festival. Held on every 15th day of the 8th month in the Chinese calendar. As the moon plays a significant part of this festival, people are celebrating it by eating mooncake. As a Chinese descendant, our family also celebrates this festival. Nothing fancy or big, just bought some mooncakes and share it among us. Today's bento was totally inspired by this festival. I used colorful egg sheets to make the decorations on the top of the rice. I made Chang Er and Hou Yi, two characters that are very popular in one of the Mid-Autumn Festival stories. I did not have much time to do a proper decoration on the face, so the characters became younger version of Chang Er and Hou Yi. Oh well ... you get the idea right? Inside the box : rice, stir fry Chinese cabbage with garlic, cherry tomatoes, and sauteed pork slices-pork ham-chili-spring onion.
Wish you and your family a happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
