Ham Rolls Christmas Bento 10

Posted on December 24, 2010 by Debra


The last of the Christmas themed bentos!  How happy we were to receive  a tree-shaped tin filled with sweets!

Saba Man and I quickly ate the yummy contents (homemade chocolate truffles), they were scrumptious!  When the box was empty I realized  I could use this cute tree-shaped box for tonight’s bento.

A gift that keeps on giving!

So here it is…ham-wrapped string beans, inarizushi and tomatoes.

“That was easy!” :)

Hope everyone has a joyous holiday!   Peace and joy to you all!

Happy Halloween Hello Kitty Bento 10

Posted on October 30, 2010 by Debra

Not very scary but for this year’s Halloween party, Hello Kitty  donned her black wig and transformed herself to Aloha Kitty!

A hardboiled egg is Kitty’s head with nori for hair, flowers are watermelon radish, tomatoes, and takuan.  Thai black rice, romanesco (my first time!), enoki mushrooms and shiso leaf recreate her tropical paradise!

Happy Halloween everyone!
