i made a boy onigiri for the first time! i steamed left over rice and made it into a rice ball with a round mold. am quite happy with the result. =)
in this bento – steamed seaweed chicken , a slice of apple (made into a bunny, which s grumbled yet again!) and boy onigiri topped with pork floss as hair (too much!). i like to ‘steam’ foods a lot. it’s a simple way to cook, i.e., all in one pot , fast and healthier too. all the factors needed for an express bento!
this is my gal’s, she didn’t like to eat rice as snacks, so no girl onigiri for her .
she had chicken seaweed, grapes and 2 fish balls, made into a little princess. she said later that this looked like a snowman! i corrected her, a snow princess it is! 😉
i didn’t prepare bento for myself as i had a luncheon meeting today.
