Happy New Home bento

My very dear friend is moving house ,thousands of miles away :(, at the end of this month and today she and her daughter came to visit me, so I made these bentos for us to have for lunch. These are Happy New Home Bentos and although it brings me great sadness that we will not be able to see each other any more for a long time,  it also brings me great joy that she will be starting a new life with new opportunities and great prospects where she’s going.  Although I only made these 2 bentos and a snack one, they were in quite large boxes and we were able to dig in and share them out and they were surprisingly filling. We still had room for a 5 minute chocolate mug cake and icecream afterwards though 🙂

We had fun in the kitchen trying out Lia’s egg sheets from her brand new tutorial on Bentolicious.  Funnily enough I have never used my tea strainer for raw egg before and it was a weird experience – I didn’t think it would take so long to go through, but it was worth it because it made a much nicer mixture for pouring into the pan. I had the heat too high – I use an induction hob and it heats up really fast, which is usually a good thing but probably not that great for making egg sheets. The bottom of the egg sheet went a little brown but the top looks useable. I certainly need more practice and I haven’t tried cutting it into shapes yet! I hope to try using it for my next bento, so I will let you know how it goes!

The ingredients in the bentos are tuna, cucumber, apple, rice, cheese, tomato, carrot and boiled egg.

  1. Oh, how nice that you made such sweet bentos for your friends! I understand how you feel, our family’s best friends are moving back to their home country before summer. It’s hard to see them move.

    I hope you have lots of good things to do to keep your mind occupied when they first leave. 🙂

  2. You such a nice and great friend! Your friend and her daughter must be very pleased with those bento you made for them. Glad to hear that you are having fun making the egg sheet 🙂

  3. Thanks Kuusou, Lyndsey and Lia for your lovely comments. I am going to miss them very much. Isn’t is a blessing though that we have the internet, email and online chatting for keeping in touch. 🙂

  4. I have a dear friend moving away next month as well. A bento day sounds like a wonderful thing to share before a separation.
