Relaxing Rilakkuma Bento

Ok, I'm embarassed to say that I woke up late again today. After doing up the lunch box, I had not enough time to do up the snack box, so it was a quick change of plans and a simpler box.

I just received my takoyaki pan in the mail today. I made a batch last night and kept some for the boys' snack boxes today. They love takoyaki and said mine tasted the same as those sold outside. But it was not true, my takoyaki texture and shape is not right, I've not gotten the hang of it yet.

Bento for IT, in the box are rice (yellow rice was coloured with pumpkin powder), egg, miso chicken , strawberries, grapes and sausages.

Bento for LT, same food as above. I hid the cut out egg white under the egg. :P

Bento for LT, same food as above. No time to decorate these two boxes, so just a fast crabby sausage and a Rilakkuma pick.

I love Rilakkuma. :)

Kimchi and chicken pizza for me. :)

I did a short tutorial for the crabby sausage after sending the boys to School.

Boil sausage, slice it into half. One sausage can make two crabbies. :)

Cut into 3 portions. Leave the middle section aside first.

Now, cut a V at the ends of the other 2 sausages.

Attach them onto the middle section using pasta.

Cut out 2 circles for the eyes, with a cutter.

I'm using these 2 punchers to get the eyes and mouth.

Attach on the eyes with pasta. Then use fried pasta for the legs. You can just shallow fry the pasta in a little oil. I'm not too good with explaining, so I hope the pictures helps. :)

  3. 嗨~
    我在用意大利粉条时,都是用未经处理过的。意大利粉条一般到孩子休息时,因为已经吸收了足够的水份,都变得可以直接食用了。:)

    1. TM, 我平时也是用未处理的意大利粉来衔接食物。不过,如果是露出来的意大利粉,好像螃蟹的那六只脚,我就会采用炸过的意大利粉。因为孩子曾投诉露出来的意大利粉到了休息时仍是硬的。

    2. 原来是这样哦~~
      看来,我女儿大概是以“囫囵吞枣”的方式把食物送进嘴里去的。因为啊,她们一般都会把便当盒里的意大利粉条都吃光光的,不管硬还是软。:D

  11. Hi Ming,
    I absolutely love your bentos! They're so beautifully made, your kids are truly blessed! :)

    I'm starting to make bento for my 2.5 yo girl, I'm wondering whether it's safe to use the pasta to attach the details? Is there other alternatives if I don't use pasta? Thank you!

    1. Tk u very much, Mrs Yap. :) Yes, it's safe, use angel hair pasta of slightly thicker pasta, they will soften by the time the kids eat them. For thicker pasta, you can fry them to be on the safe side. :)
