Never knew that bento-making could be made into a fun bonding session with friends 😉 At my age, bonding/get-togethers normally mean just meals or drinks so I was a little apprehensive at first. As it turned out, it was pretty entertaining!

We used several items, as I’ll list out below, to assemble our bentos. They may not be perfect but I think its the experience that counts ;D

This is just a short picture post as there aren’t any instructions… just do whatever you like and go crazy with your food!

Tools used:

  • Cute and colourful picks
  • Panda rice mold
  • Seaweed cutters (panda shaped and various smileys)
  • Small knife
  • Small scissors
  • Tweezers

Food used:

  • Plain white cooked short grain rice
  • cooked white short grain rice mixed with salmon furikake topping
  • An assortment of fruits
  • Shiso leaves
  • Cheese slices
  • Cocktail sausages
  • Furikake
  • Boiled eggs
  • Wasabi peas
  • Seaweed

So here’s my bento, the pandas, the failed hatched chick and cheese swirls:

I’m now all revved up to make cuter bentos soon! Its a nice change to seaweed art, but of course I won’t abandon that either. I’ve yet to make Rurouni kenshin bentos!IMG_6359
