Sausage Car Bento

LT has no School today but it'll be a long day for him tomorrow, he's going on an excursion to the science centre. And IT has no School tomorrow. I'm in holiday mood, just went shopping with LT today and I think I'll be going shopping again with IT tomorrow, lol. :)

It's a speedy bento today, and since I did not have to leave early to send LT to School, I had some time to take some step by step photos. :)

Boil some cocktail sausages.

Cut off both ends and keep them, you will need them for the wheels. Then, cut four slits vertically on the sausage.

Then cut 2 slits horizontally.

It should look like this when you are done.

Slice the 2 ends of the sausage into 4 portions.

Cut out the wheels with a round cutter.

Then, attach on the wheels to the car with pasta. Ta-dah, it's done, now you can complete the look by adding picks. :)

Here's how it looks after adding in the picks. :) This bento is for IT, in the box are multi-grained rice, sausage, thai grilled chicken, pork rolls, golden kiwi, strawberries and blueberries.

This is for LT, same food as above.

This is another version, without the wheels, I think they look like logs. :) This box is for IT's recess, in the box are nutella sandwich, thai grilled chicken and grapes.

There's no snack box for LT today, since he has no School. I will be making a snack box for him tomorrow for his excursion, I will update it in this post as it will be the exact same idea as these boxes I'm sharing today. I do not have to pack him lunch, because he will be having MacDonalds happy meal for lunch.

And the same thai grilled chicken for me, with baked potato and spinach.

As mentioned earlier in this post, I'm sharing this bento I made for LT to bring for his excursion. He chose the bunnies picks for this bento. :) I packed him some raisins and sweets as well in the small lego boxes, for him to share with his friends. He told me his teacher said they can bring sweets, so he kept telling me to pack some for him. -_- This photo was taken early in the morning when it was still quite dark, so I used indoor lighting instead. Not too happy with how it turned out, I am still very clueless in taking bento photos when there's not enough light.
