first bento

Posted on: July 1, 2009

today i was alone for lunch so i thought of packing my lunch in my bento box and see how much i can fit in it… and it was definitely too much for one person! so when uni starts i’ll pack my lunch in my disneyland bento box instead of this one 😀

another try at the octodogs. i’ve tried it once and it didn’t work very well, it turns out that i cut the tentacles wrongly >w< hahah i've made 2 cute carp sausages too. don't they look cute?

my favourite ingredient in the kitchen 😀 bread crumbs, otherwise known as panko in japanese

korokke and sausages all done and placed on paper towels to soak any extra oil

success! my cute octodogs 😀 a bit shrivelled though, any ideas how to prevent this? or maybe it’s the wrong type of sausage… i usually don’t eat sausages but i have to now, because they look so cute 😀

everything packed into my bento! 3 pieces of cream korokke, 2 sausage octopuses, 2 carp sausages and 3 quail eggs

i tried making a cat korokke 😀 i should have decorated the eggs too but i was lazy

the cream sauce was too hard and congealed :S it was tough to chew… i shouldn’t have cook it for so long D: in any case i still like potato and meat korokke…

i want the korokke!! *drools

the tentacles are supposed to curl up to become tako no? try cuting the sausage tentacles shorter.the thin Malaysian sausages ALWAys shrivel up. except those fat ones,cheese sausages etc. XD Plus make a shallow x on top of the head.

Awesome! ^__^ Can’t wait to see more bento from you.

I find that those tiny cocktail sausages work pretty well because there’s no skin on the outside to shrivel.
