This is addictive! It is midnight and I felt the urge to do another bento! Here is my midnight snack! It is apple, banana and strawberry yogurt!
This is a similar version of the first Bento plate I made, but bigger, for my husband. And this one features a patty of tuna and mayonnaise and I used squares of red pepper for extra colour and decoration. The wedges of egg are the bits pulled out of the full egg to make the mouth, used as edible decorations.
Don’t laugh! I’m a Bento Virgin!
This Bento Plate consists of rice in a rectangle, with carrots cut into shapes and sliced gherkins, with a slice of cheese rolled up and cut into spirals, and a boiled egg with a wedge cut out for its mouth. Then I put 2 blobs of food colouring on for the eyes, but it was a bit too big a blob on one side and it went a bit runny. So I’ll try to find a better way to do the eyes next time. The black circle is a Jaffa Cake. I made this Bento for my toddler. He thought it was funny and played with it more than ate any of it!
I now have a new site called Bento Box ! Please visit and tell me what you think!
