Its Friday! And I get a weekend break from making 🍱! Yah! So today I made something extra special for them, some Japanese sweets (Dango 🍡 and jelly) to accompany their seafood patties sandwiches. I bet Tz will skip his sandwich and go straight to the sweets….

The seafood patties are made up of :
half a cod fish fillet, half a squid and 4 prawns, all minced.
I mixed in :
half an egg, some potato flour to bind the ingredients (you can use breadcrumbs too), 2-3 tablespoons fish sauce, 3/4 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoon coconut cream, 1 tablespoon of tamarind pulp, some minced coriander and basil leaves, and 2-3 green beans chopped.
And I fried them in some vegetable oil until all sides are golden crispy brown.

I added some crispy fried bacon into the sandwiches too. Tz is mad about bacon.

Have a great weekend ahead! I will catch up on my sleep……😴

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.
