Two Easter Bento

Last weekend me and my mum went for a day out in Beverley. I figured I’d make us some bento to eat on the train.

Then I remembered it doesn’t take that long to get from Hull to Beverley on train. We ended up eating the bento on a bench in Beverley but hey.

This was the first time my mum has had a bento-style packed lunch and she seemed to really enjoy it!

Here is the lunch I had:
easter bento 5

And here is my mum’s

easter bento 4

They both contain:
• Teriyaki noodle stir fry
• mixed vegetables
cucumber and carrot tsukemono
• mixed vegetables
• mushrooms
• broccoli
• rabbit shaped eggs
• home made, mini, spicy pasties and
• ham and cheese “Easter” details

I look forward to more bento lunches on days out!

How to use in lunch boxes / bento

Like any other cutter these can be used to make character sandwiches, although there may be a little too much detail in these ones to work 100% perfectly every time. They can also be used to jazz up sliced meat and cheese, make rice shapes or how about some savoury character biscuits?

What recipes are included:
• Snow White and Grumpy cookies
• Lucifer’s cinnamon doughnuts
• Daisy Duck’s white chocolate truffles
• Magnificent monster Yeti cake
• Princess Dot’s blueberry bars
• The Never Land Pirates’ cookies
• Beauty and the Beast cake part 2
• Decorating with candy melts
• Ginger bakes

I would be extremely cautious when it comes to ordering from the Eaglemoss website and where possible I would only buy these magazines in store (as I have been doing).

I ordered a large amount of back copies for some friends in America who cannot get them any other way. I ordered them on the 22/11/13 and paid for next day delivery.

Eaglemoss have again made an attempt to fix the issue, one parcel arrived with some of the missing issues. After another exchange of messages I was told I would received the rest of the issues when they are back in stock.

A few days later another parcel arrived with a few more copies.

Now to wait for the final few!
