I actually have cupcakes project on Tuesday so I was lazy to cook but I am really lost for ideas what to feed Darrius. Nevertheless, I still managed to cook a pot of corn soup with the left over corns bought by PiggyBeng over the weekend. Then I remembered that I still have some meat balls left in the freezer so decided to clear them. I just need to cook so rice.
Half way through, my kay-pohness kicks in. Was thinking that, since I have some new Bento gadgets which I bought from here, I might as well whip up a ‘simple’ Bento for Darrius and from there the idea starts to flow and ended up I have a great Bento here! 😆
Top: Korean Campbell grapes and Blueberries muffin topped with dried blueberries
Bottom: Meat balls, cherry tomatoes, meat balls wrapped with egg omelet on skewer with capsicum, rice balls with nori flakes and sweet peas on a bed of lettuce
At the end I fried some egg omelets to wrap the meat balls. Instead of placing the rice in the bowl flat I decided to make them into rice balls. Then I have some extra batter from my cupcakes project and I made some blueberries cupcakes for Darrius using the dried blueberries which was given by Anna when she came back to Malaysia a few months back.
To top it off, I put some Korean Campbell grapes which I bought from Jusco (so much cheaper than Tesco!!!!) for him but after tasting one, he don’t like the taste so they ended in PiggyBeng’s tummy later… The grapes were selling at RM19.90 a bundle in Tesco and surprisingly only cost RM6.50 a bundle in Jusco… weird huh? I must admit they has a funny taste… something like liquer and it is chewy inside… like mashmellow.
This Bento is a little heavy for Darrius so I actually split them into 2 meals, lunch and afternoon snack. He saw the cupcakes before I gave him the rice and he refused to eat the rice and insisted that he wants the cupcake. So, I have to threaten him that I will eat the cupcake if he don’t finish his rice… So guai–guai finish… 😆 (that’s why no photos of Darrius eating this Bento coz I have to served separately!)
