Jadul Bentos Parade #2: Egg-y & Bread-y Bentos and Happy Ramadhan!

by - Tuesday, August 10, 2010

It sounds that I always look for excuse every time I pop up again with a new post after my long disappearance ^_^v. Please don’t be sick with that, do forgive me hehehe :D. I frankly confess that I wish I had more time for blogging (T_T). These past two weeks were pretty hectic for me, I was trusted to be one of the presenters in a workshop (yeah dealing with teaching and it was the very first time for me). So, I did need everything to be well-planned since it was a crucial moment for my career :P (yeah, it’s a milestone and I’m really happy since it went well :D). For my dear friend, Momon, who misses my post… I’m coming! ^_^

Egg-y Bentos

Egg-y Bentos

Oh thanks God, it’s so releasing that now I can execute my words to post the next round of my previous Jadul Bentos. For today’s round, the Jadul Bentos exhibit Egg-y and Bread-y themes. LOL, I’m completely “conscious” that on my first phase in learning making bentos it felt like that my bento creations were cursed by EGG! Almost all of my bento imaginations just couldn’t be away from egg as the main star (bad bento director! Hahaha :P). And here you are my jadul egg-y charabens:

#1 Dating-Birds Bento
Actually this was my breakfast (I didn’t pack it in a lunch box and loved to have it as my cute morning meal). Are you de javu with this bento design? Yes, I copied this bento idea when I searched for bento pictures, but I’m so sorry to forget the source (I only remembered the idea then put it on my meal ^^v). I made the birds from hard boiled salted egg halves. Since it was salted egg, the egg halves’ surface couldn’t be so smooth and slippery (you know the reason lah :D). The birds went with warm-steamed rice, dendeng ragi, love cutouts from Cabai Merah and carrot, boiled broccoli, and sprinkle of basil seeds. I made the eyes from asturo paper (didn’t eat it :D), peaks from carrot, and little wings from lemon peel.

#2 Farm Chicks & Mommy Chick Bento
I made this one for T (she’s my boardinghouse mate). T was really happy with her bento. She had it as her breakfast too and said to me that it was the cutest meal she ever had :D. Mommy chick was made from hard-boiled egg and the little chicks were from boiled quail eggs colored with turmeric water. The rests of the bento were the same with the #1 one.

#3 Little Oranges Bento
They were made from quail eggs. The leaves and stems made from cucumber peel. To result yellow and orange colors with turmeric extract you can peep the tips here.

#4 Duo Piyo-Piyo Bento (Two Chicks Bento)
This third egg-y bento was as simple as the two first ones before to make. You can figure out how to make it and what ingredients you need only by looking at the picture :D. The background of piyo-piyo: pink rice and serundeng.

Bread-y Bentos

Bread-y Bentos

Sponge Bob was the first trial in my bread-y bento series. The next day I continued to make his mate, Patrick! I was little bit disappointed with Patrick’s color – it was pinkish orange instead of pretty pink! I used the mix of egg white and egg yolk added with pink food coloring. It must have been way better if I only used the egg white and pink food coloring :(. For the Panda Bento, I simply cut a slice of sandwich into panda head then did a facial decoration. For the last bread-y bento, White & Brown Bunnies, I was quite satisfied with switching the white and brown bunnies idea (although the bento looks so plain hehehe). The brown bunny made from toasted sandwich.

And before I end my post today… I sincerely wish a happy Ramadhan for all dear frieds who celebrate it. Ramadhan Mubarak! Happy Fasting :D

Ramadhan Mubarak

Welcome a holy month full of blessing…

    I don't mind at all when bento bloggers have some time between their posts, it makes me feel better for not posting so often. Sometimes busy times just get in the way!

  8. These are AMAZING bentos! I love the Spongebob and Patrick bentos. Spongebob is so hilarious. Even for adults. :) When you have to watch videos over and over again with your kids, it helps to have ones that don't make you want to poke your own eyes out. Great job, tatabonita!
