Cooked some Hainanese style pork chops for dinner last nite, had a few leftover. Thus, while companying little girl to sleep, I was thinking and planning on a kyaraben bento for her, a reward for getting herself a trophy on Tue.
Me: Girl, which Sanrio character is brown in color? Cinnamoroll?
LG: No, it is white.
LG: No (Actually one of the bunny is brown, but little girl remembered the pink only)
Me: Never mind, I will google
LG: ... * closing her eyes to sleep while I googled on the phone *
Me: Huh... I got it, girl, it's Rilakkuma!
LG: Oh, right!
Me: But it's not from Sanrio, it is from San-X. Ok, I'll make you Rilakkuma bento 2moro, go sleep now.
So, here I present my Rilakkuma bento. The origini was stuffed with a big piece of pork chop and the rice was mixed with the pork chop gravy. I made 2 tiny origini for the ears and a big one for the head. Bento used about 45 minutes to complete.
(made of pork chop & gravy, egg crepe for the ear & face and seaweed for the expression)
Rilakkuma was joined with 2 friends, which are:
Crab stick balls
and cheese fish ball
They were happily playing in the balls playground (buttered baby green peas).
Before last holiday, little girl returned home 1 day announcing that she has volunteered herself to enter the chinese poetry reading competition. I explained the poetry to her and read with her once, and she has memorized well and have been practicing by herself occasionally or even sometimes with her form teacher.
I totally forgotten that it was her competition day today, I didn't even cheer her when I left her in school, feeling so sorry for that.
However, when I reached her school at the evening, she waved to me with the trophy on hand and a big smile. "Mummy, mummy.... This is the 1st time I am getting a trophy in school!" She was so delighted with the little trophy.
While driving home, she told me how she performed on stage, what happened next, etc, then,
LG: Mummy, thank you for practicing with me.
Me: * Aw... my heart melt immediately *
Baby, you don't have to thank mummy, you should thank your teacher, she practiced with u
more, did u thank her?
LG: Yes, and she said 不用客气 (you are welcome in chinese)
Me: Good girl!
Boy, though it is just a consolation prize but I am so proud of her.
LG: Mummy, when can I have sushi for bento?
Me: Hm.... let me check... * opening the fridge *
Do I have cucumber? Yes Rice? Yes
Ok, u can have sushi for bento today!
LG: Yeah! Can I share with my friend?
So, here I present the very last minute decided sushi bento. All ready in about 20 minutes.
Maki sushi stuffed with cucumber and sausage sticks
Made do these french toast with the final 2 pieces of bread from the dual color sweet potatoes loaf I baked on Sunday. I cut each bread into 6 cubes, slit open each cube to spread in some nutella before soaking them into the egg & milk mixture bath, then cook til golden brown on both sides.
Cooking process and bento preparation took around 30 minutes.
