Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Hubby Bento #18 – A message in a box


I left a little message in my husband’s bento today, hoping he will understand what I am asking for, a vacation. However, the irony was he did not understand it and texted a message back to me with the comment ” I did not order a maid with my bento…” !!! (−_−#) Men….is he avoiding the obvious message? ψ(`∇´)ψ

Well, I went ahead and booked us a holiday anyway. Since he does not understand the message clearly, I will show him the air tickets. ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

The bento today is filled with seafood goodies on top on simple vinegar sushi rice. Its similar to a chirashi sushi box but due to the humidity in my country, raw seafood in bento is not impossible if it’s eaten a few hours later at room temperature. I chose to use a combination of cooked seafood for this bento:

• snow crab meat • tako octopus leg • scallops • prawns • clams • avocado • kyuri • tomago • ogura sakura denbu • radish

The preparation for this bento is fast since all I need to do is to steam or grill the seafood but it’s still very tasty.

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.
