Bento 296

This morning at 6.15a.m. I flicked through the pages of Yum-Yum Bento Box for ideas. Okay, so it wasn't the best time to be browsing a Bento book of pictures looking for bright ideas to strike!

I had sushi rice left over and normally, I would mix sakura denbu and Kewpie mayo together with the sushi rice and pack it into a box for #3 to bring to school.

After yesterday's excitement over her bento box, mummy had to rise to another challenge today to pack a cutesy bento. Page 72 of Yum-Yum Bento Box struck my eyes!

I have some rice molds too and I could get out of my (lazy) comfort zone and begin using them...*wrinkles face*

I stuffed the rice with some tuna, chopped onions, mayo and freshly ground pepper. Topped each one of the different shapes with some sakura denbu. #3 kept nagging me to make an extra one for her to try, which I did and that resulted with Ooooo....s and Aaaa.....s. *so nice! so nice!* she exclaimed!

I used the triangle pocket bread mold to mold some tuna sandwiches. After yesterday's tonkatsu 'face' balls, it's starry eyes and a smiley face sandwich. *grins*

You would notice that there are no greens, that's because #3 doesn't eat any greens and anything green in the bento box would be a waste (at this time anyway). I filled the gaps with cubes of watermelon and stuck a skewer for her to use.
