Bento Mania #43 & #44

Bento # 43

I hardly post up Baby Princess bento. This 3 year old of mine is a fussy eater and she eats very little food only. I’ve decided to post up her bento this time consisting of Pancake with blackberry jam on the side, Champagne grapes and two pieces of Toblerone chocolate.

Of course the older kids get 3 pieces of pancake each.

The pan I used this time is flower shape. Recently I’ve bought a whole lot more of other pans like Hello Kitty shape and such. Haven’t really find the time to utilize them yet.

Bento # 44

Before this, I took things for granted thinking that some of you can tell which bento is for adult and which one is for kiddos till I get comment like, “Those portion is too big for a kids.” “Are you sure your kids eat such stuff?”. Duhh! Do I have to be so precise to mentioned all the time if the meal is for kids or adult? It take ones intelligent to tell actually (depending which category you fall under).

Bacon, asparagus and enoki mushroom

This one is definitely adult bento.

Top tray: Avocado & a squirt of kewpie mayonnaise, spiral macaroni + onion + red and yellow bell peppers toast in french dressing.

Lower tray: Grill rolled bacon + baby potatoes at 200C for 30 minutes.

Hubby was telling me he don’t like the taste of the baby potatoes. So what he did is gave one to Annie, Victor and Brian.  And he ate the rest of the potatoes.  So smart of him!

Traditional Bento Box sold in Market Hall

The lower tray was then loosely wrapped with cling wrap before being stacked up to avoid the bottom of the upper tray smear with mayonnaise.
