Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Lazy Bento Day


“Au Cafe” Bento

Petits Pizza Rond et Nuggets de Poulet dans un Sac

Today I made this quick bistro style bento in 30 minutes for Tz with the help of a few pretty packagings such as a little paper bag with French script, round patterned paper napkins, sea creature shaped nori I bought from Okinawa Churami aquarium and a doggy pick.

Ready made pizza dough – use round cookie cutter to cut out small round shapes
Tomato paste, Mozaralla cheese, flower shaped ham. Bake in oven on high for 5 mins until crust is crisp. Take out of the oven and add the nori sea creatures as a finishing touch. Each of the pizza in the box has a different sea creature, turtle, dugong, manta ray, crown fish and whale shark.

Chicken Nuggets or Karaage see my recipe in my Little Goat Boy? post

Et Voilà! “Au Cafe” Bento



Author: ongling

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.
