Www.ongling.comToday’s buddy for Tz’s lunch box is Agent Perry from Phineas and Ferb. Its a simple nori cutout placed on egg fried rice molded with a fan-shaped sushi press. Accompanying the fried rice are smoked pork collar, crispy anchovies and steamed vegetables. The smoked pork collar was made a day before due to long cooking duration. I have the recipe in Hubby Bento #04 post.

Simple Egg Fried Rice: 1 egg mixed with some chicken stock and overnight white rice.
Heat a little oil, pour in the egg mixture over low to medium heat. Just as the egg starts to set, stir in the white rice and mixed evenly until the egg is fully cooked and the rice will look naturally yellow.

As for his snack box, I made some crepes with passionfruit drizzle with my new triple pan I purchased recently from Japan. It is so convenient and efficient when preparing bentos cooking several food items simultaneously in one pan.

I cooked the crepes in the centre portion of the triple pan, perfect for making tamagoyaki too. In the below picture I was cooking savoury edamame crepes in the centre and pan frying crispy tofu skin for my hubby’s bento on the side. How convenient is that?!

Crepes with passionfruit drizzle
Crepes: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt,  3 eggs, 2 cups milk, 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Passionfruit drizzle: 4-5 tablespoons of ready made passionfruit puree (without the seeds) , add more if you like a strong passionfruit flavour like me; 85g of brown sugar; 1 tsp of butter.

Sift together flour, sugar and salt. beat eggs and milk together with an electric mixer in a separate bowl. Mix in flour mixture until smooth; add in melted butter.
Gently melt the butter, add in the sugar and the passion fruit puree, cook until all the sugar has melted. Pour a thin layer of crepe mixture in the centre portion. Just before it sets fully, drizzle 1 or 2 teaspoonfuls of the passionfruit sauce and roll it up.

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.
