Hello Kitty Egg Mould

20120831-092933.jpg

Today an item arrived in the post I almost forgot I’d ordered!

It’s a very cute Hello Kitty egg mould! It cost around £1.80 with free shipping from a seller in Hong Kong on eBay.

It actually arrived 4 days early and I can’t wait to try it out!!

Bento tip #1

Ever had a bento and thought ” This could do with some thick sauce”? Not that you would use the word thick in that sentence but I meant it to cover sauces including, but not restricted to, • tomato ketchup •BBQ sauce • brown sauce That’s all well and good but when you have tiny, cute little sauce bottles shaped like bears and pandas it’s near impossible to get thick sauces in and out of said cutesy bottles. Never again! All you need to do is mix a tiny bit of water with the sauce and et voila you can now use it!!

Today’s Tempura and Onigiri bento

Today I decided I really wanted some tempura prawns in a bento, I did cheat by using premade ones but they were delicious all the same.

So in this bento I had three, rather large ( too large to fit the lid on properly), tempura prawns, mixed peppers, sweetcorn, and two tuna mayo onigiri, one coated in chip spice ( which if you can get your hands on I recommend highly!!!!) and a little bottle of BBQ sauce 🙂
