Getting to know Bento Pet

I've always had fun with packing my bentos. I do them at my pace and my way. I'm a MAMA with 3 girls I term 'babies'.

This is a last minute submission because I wasn't feeling well this morning and when I did feel better this afternoon, I donned on my apron and began working on the ONE cooking skill which I enjoy most - SUSHI!

So, who am I? Javapot wants to know.

I am a "Tiger" Mama. By depicting you my Chinese Zodiac sign, you should be able to calculate my AGE! Telling you how old I am shows you that I am comfortable in my own skin. I'm always busy with my 3 baby 'cubs'.

I used my single layer Jabuko box to pack the "Tiger" sushi made up of egg soboro, ground black sesame seeds, simmered kampyo, nori, gamaboko, French bean and Japanese sushi rice.

I stuck "my" eyes a little cross eyed because I'm always dazed and amazed at the things my 3 little cubs do and share with me during our 'after-school' chit-chats.

I'm a free and easy person. I love to eat fruits and vegetables although my eldest daughter will tell you that "I'm ALL about carbs!" The size and content of the "Tiger sushi" is relative to how large I am in reality. *sniggers*

I'm always on the prowl to taste and experiment new food and recipes. Notice my skewered kimchi roll, spring onions with tuna mayo roll and "bunga kantan" (Torch ginger flower) veggie roll?

The 3 tomato heads depict the loves of my life. My husband is missing here because I think if he had to say one thing about "Bento" even if to save his life, he'd be dumbfounded! LOL!

Hope you've got to know me better.

Edit: Added a zoom in picture of the "Tiger" sushi.

Lebanese bread roll ups

Not feeling too good today, down with a bad headache. I did a quick fix roll up sandwich today.

The kids and I have been patronizing this place called Desserts Bar nearby. I'm sure if you're in the vicinity of PJ or KL you would have seen it or even tried their ice-creams.

This year they seem to have expanded their menu not only in the area of desserts but also light snacks. Every month or so they have a menu promotion which is very worth eating. One of their sandwiches I noticed, came with cous cous. I thought that it was an interesting ingredient to add to the egg roll up which they served.

This morning, I made Lebanese bread roll ups which consisted of cous cous mixed with mayo, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and chopped tomatoes on a bed of romaine salad.

Then I lay strips of crabsticks on the cous cous combi and topped with freshly cracked pepper.

Folded the Lebanese bread and tucked it under the romaine salad and gave it a tight nip and tuck!

Viola! The whole roll cut into two. It was very filling!
