Not Charaben -Simple Bento

This is my sons bento last tuesday, and that day i want to make something which is not caharaben. My reason is i often asked by many friends.. do all students in Japan always bring cute bento as you made? and the answer is NO. it depends on the kids, and moms of course :D

but..moms here, usually make their sons bento colourful to attrack kids to eat their lunch..fo exa,ple using furikake to colouring the rice, use many vegetables and fruit as a natural colouring in the lunch bos, and also use cup to put the side meal, rice or vegetables. Also they usually use toothpicks to make the food looks fresh and cute.. :)

in my case, i love to do charaben.. :D so every morning.. is my relax time, doing my hobby, thinking about something cute, cooking a good food, as a presents for my son. ;)

Here is my NOT Charaben Bento ^_^



first tier consist of rice covered with beef floss and i put purple sweet potato, don't you see..it still looks cute without any character? :)

second tier is otak otak tenggiri, check the recipe HERE, vegetables stir fry (mushroom, carrots and green mustard), also mini tomatoes.

I use silicon cup to put the vegetables stir fry, and also i use leaf toothpicks in decorate the mini tomatoes.

Hope you like it ^_^
