BENTO #140

A quick bento for tea before another run to the music school!
Clockwise: A silicon cup full of chopped up salad doused in Olive oil and some Balsamic vinegar, a yellow Kiwi, a freshly ripened date and a tomato.

I bought some mini cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon and I added it into the Bento box. There is another cherry tomato and finally a silicon cup of fried chicken. A lot of friendly animal faces in today's Bento box!

This is eaten at home so I don't have to worry about adjusting the animal forks to accommodate a closed box!

Oh! And there is a flask full of "lui cha" (herbal soup made up of basil, mint, peanuts, sesame, salt, pepper, bitter herbs, tea and young Jambu leaves).

#2 had a most satisfying tea break!

I love the mini cinnamon rolls, but pass on the lui cha. *_*

Been wanting to ask you to get the 100 yen guy to bring in the cute picks / fork picks. Those picks you have are sold in Ichiban-kan for US 1.50, which I think is the supplier for 100 yen shop (reason being their bento boxes are identical). The egg moulds that 100yen shop brought in were a big hit, all sold out. So there is a market for cute things like this.

3lilangels: Will do! I asked him to bring in the egg moulds.

stargal: I don't normally use all the fancy animal forks for packed bentos because I find it not practical when I have to pack and adjust them into the box.

I used them for this bento because it was eaten at home.

Mmm...I love balsamic vinegar and yes, those cute animal forks!

Too bad I can't start a bento yet. I'm just a klutz at craftsy stuff :P

The closest I got was French toast triangles!

No bento supplies over here also.
