Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Sumikko Spaetzle

These little fellows are Shirokuma (whitebear) & tonkatsu (Pork cutlet) from the Sumikkogurashi family. They were Tz’s lonely lunch buddies today. He even made conversations with them before he ate them up in just 1 bite. I have made them out of mash potatoes and the size of a thumb. They were sitting on a bed of German spaetzle and shredded stewed pork.

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.
