Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Up Up Up We Go! Bento

Did I mention in my last post I cannot wait for Tz’s holidays to start? Well, this bento may clearly describe my current state of mind. I NEED A HOLIDAY! Where to? Anywhere on the map! (=^x^=)

Still got 3 more days to go… so I got motivated to get up earlier than usual to make Tz’s bento. Today on the menu are

Box 1 Hotair balloon – See the description on the last image on this post

Box 2
My mom’s Stewed Pork Belly (Sorry… no recipe yet for this)
Potato Slices cooked in Duck Fat
I know its not exactly healthy but once in a while its ok… they are very tasty! Lightly salt the potato slices and cook in duck fat til light golden brown. Use paper napkin to soak off the excess oil.
Steamed broccoli

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.
