Curly Girl Bento

by - Sunday, January 04, 2009

I’m mad about Bento box and this is my very first Bento project *wualah!*. I am so happy with the result. It’s started two weeks ago when I was exploring the internet; I met with some Bento pictures. OMG, they were so cute that I could not stand to make my own. So when I had a not too busy time I used it to make my first Bento. I wanted to make a simple Bento whose ingredients are easy to get and don’t cost a lot of money of course. So I decided to go with this “Curly Girl Bento”.

made from rice, fried noodle, fried sausage, curly lettuce (French lettuce) and accompanied by sliced apple and fresh Strawberries *I love the Strawberries sooo muuuchh, they were sooo cuuute*. The flowers and ribbon were made from fried sausage. For the blushes, I used hot tomato sauce. While for the eyes and cute smile, I used Nori *It was not easy to make them, needs a lot of patience*. I made my Bento with super simple tools *only a knife and a spoon* I do not have the “weapons” to make a super cute and fantastic Bento like a Bento expert maker have. I’m a beginner, but I think I have the “talent” *over confident ;)*. I was very excited and satisfied with the result and I was thinking that it was too cute to eat.

I had
this Curly Girl Bento as my lunch when I taught at SMAN 1. I enjoyed it with a box of Buavita juice and cheese wafer. My friends were very excited to see my Bento, but later they said that it’s more suitable for kids. I didn’t care; I’m not a child anymore, but if it is dealing with this kind of stuff I think I’m like a kid *??????????????????????*. They might be jealous because they didn’t have a cute lunch like mine, haha ;p

I think
I’m gonna make another Bento. Just waiting for a free time and I’ll sink myself in the bundle of joy of making my Bento. Can’t wait for it!
