Bento Fun #13

I bought a big piece of pumpkin and wanted to steam for Darrius to go with his rice and suddenly thought that I might as well try out my new onigiri molds which I bought from Jusco Bukit Tinggi. It has 4 different shapes; heart, triangle, star and cherry blossom. I mixed the steamed pumpkin with the rice without any seasoning (to save gas I actually placed the pumpkin in the rice cooker when it is about to cook). Incidentally, Darrius was watching his Sesame Street VCD on shapes and color… timing just nice!

Darrius enjoyed this Bento though he kept telling me the eyes and mouth on the Onigiri looked like Awujiak (ghost)…. hehehehe

    So pretty… how long does Darrius take to finish a meal like this? Maybe I shd do something so that my kids finish their food quickly.

    HN,
    Thanks! I did not do much with the fish actually… I only slide a small piece of cut tomato for the ‘red’ lips… πŸ˜›

    Sue,
    I can’t remember but I did checked on him a few times… probably around 30-45 mins coz he was watching TV as well… bad habit but no choice! πŸ˜›

    whoisbaby,
    The eyes are nori and the mouths are from the cherry tomatoes.

    Platinumgirl,
    Thank God, Darrius is not fussy when it comes to vege… he eats loads of them but he don’t like them raw that much so I have to either steamed them or blanched them.

    Paik Ling,
    This particular one took me a while as it was my first time using the rice molds… the rice won’t wanna come out! πŸ˜›
