Yellow Chicks Bento

Twin Chicks
Simple yellow chicks bento for today's post. I just don't know, I really love to make chick-themed bento hehehe. FYI, I still have about 5 chick bentos in my laptop to be posted LOL. As you know, I'm a big fan of Maki Ogawa aka Luckysundae and I've been inspired a lot by her bento creations. The beaks of these cute little chicks were also inspired from Maki's creation, thanks Maki!

The chicks were made of boiled quail egg colored in boiling water added with turmeric extract. The beaks were from steamed carrot then the chicks were decorated with nori cutouts and heart shaped food picks. The side dishes were boiled broccoli, water spinach and shrimp stir fry, boiled sweet corn, grilled mackerel, and tempeh steak ball with boiled quail egg inside. The bed of rice was sprinkled by toasted black sesame seeds ^^

Happy Chick Chick my dear buddies ^^

  11. @sheri: Yes, sheri! We love chicks :D. I got the turmeric extract from fresh grated turmeric. I put out the quail eggs from boiling turmeric water when they were still white yellowish. When they have cooled down, the color would turn out to be bright yellow. Instead, when I put them out from turmeric water when the color was yellow, I would get orange quail eggs ^^
