I tried to be more decorative with our bento boxes this time.
I busted out my adorably-shaped cutters and made some tiny hearts and flowers out of steamed carrots and a thin omelette. It makes preparing my bento more enjoyable.
Packing these lunches didn’t take a long time at all; mainly because I already had the pancit canton (Filipino chow mein) and rice for the onigiri (rice ball) and even the flower-shaped carrots ready.
The rice balls don’t have any fillings; I just sprinkled some salmon furikake onto the rice and mixed in the omelette scraps from the heart-shaped omelette before I started shaping the rice.
As you can see, Joel’s bento was extra cheesy, and not because I added in any cheese lol (ba-dum-tss). I just thought it would be more fun to make it rather cutesy haha.
As for my bento, I’m not even going to pretend that those sriracha dots are anything but artsy lol. That’s kind of a lame attempt at #foodart, but I’ll try to do better next time!
And I know these pictures are not the best quality =/ It’s really a challenge to find good lighting in my kitchen. Not to toot my own horn, these lunches taste delicious though, so I have that going for me. 😀
