Autumn Onsen Bear

I'm sharing another two autumn bentos today. I will probably not be making any more autumn theme bentos for this year. :)

Bear enjoying onsen during autumn. I'm planning to visit at least one during winter, hope that it will be snowing then. :)

Bear is rice onigiri, which I moulded and pan fried by brushing on some soya sauce, till a crust is formed. This helps the rice to hold its shape in the soup. The bear is soaking in miso soup and is covered with a nori towel. Autumn leaves are cut out from egg sheet.

I also cooked gyoza and nori tamago for this meal.

Made these simple snack boxes for my boys using an acorn and leaf cutter. I almost forgotten I had these cutters, got them after autumn last year and this is the first time I'm using them. -_-

  4. What a piece of art! I love the bear in the fall leaves. He's adorable! The leaf cutter sandwiches are really nice also....great photography as well. I like the addition of the real leaves. They add a nice pop of color to your scene!

  5. I love your onigiri bears! Everything you make is so beautiful! I think your backgrounds add a lot to the feel of the meal. I feel like I'd be sitting down at a table under a tree with the wind blowing gently. Hahaha... Your presentation really is awesome. ^^

    1. It's a veggie cutter, something like the ones I shared in the links at the end of the post.
