Boof Boof Boof! Yes, please welcome one of Suzy's Zoo cute characters, Boof the brown bear! :D. I received my Suzy's Zoo bento book from Mummy Raifan some weeks before my b-day; so I considered it as a b-day present from my own hehehe. As my previous book review post on Kaerenmama's bento book, I bought this book was because of the freebies (1 bear head silicon mold, 1 bunny head silicon mold, 2 stencils, and 2 heart shaped silicon cups). The book itself is very thin and only has few bento samples. I was deeply into the bear and bunny silicon molds :D. The molds sound that they'll be useful to make a big batch of charaben without much effort. But in practice, I got difficulty in molding the rice to make Boof. Boof's face turned out great but I needed to remold Boof's perfect ears for couple of times (at many times Boof's head was resulted earless T_____T).
To make Boof's head, I mixed steamed rice with hot tomato ketchup and a drop of kecap manis. I tried to faithfully copy the Boof bento sample from the book by adding beef sausage heart and side dish from jullienned carrot hehehe, but my another side dish was different from the one in the book, I had crispy fried chicken. The only thing that created a regret on me was.... I forgot to add cheese cuouts for Boof's ears T____T
I hope Boof brightens up your day! ^^
