Winnie is made out of sliced cheese, chicken roll and nori.
He is laid on two small chicken roll sandwiches.
Next to him are baby tomatoes and a bat shaped egg thanks to the CuteZCute Palz.
Next to those is a cauliflower cheese “spooky white forest” and some mixed vegetables being guarded by some spooky carrot pumpkins!

Guest Post: Alfro Bento

Today’s guest posts is written by the lovely Shirley from Littlemissonigiri

This was one bento that I didn’t get to post earlier on my blog. With this special invitation to be the guest blogger for Oh!Bento, I thought it would be nice to share it here.

A fun and simple character bento. Do you know Alfro Ken? Quite an entertaining character with his alfro hairdo I must say.

Aside from this bento photo post, what I wanted to share with you is the fun way to create some cute side dishes for your bento.

Over here, I want to bring your attention to the cute meat patties with carrot cut outs. Here is a simple tutorial:

Recipe
Ingredients
50g of minced meat (chicken or pork)
0.5 tbsp/6~8g silken tofu
1 tsp brown sugar
5 carrot slices
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp ketchup

Method
1. In a small bowl, add silken tofu, brown sugar, soy sauce and ketchup to the minced meat. Mix well.
2. Using cutters, create cut outs of carrot slices.
3. Lay the carrot slices on a plate, spoon a portion of the minced meat mixture on top. Press it down to make a patty.
4. Heat 1 tsp of sesame oil in a non stick pan and grill the meat patties on both sides until brown and cooked through.

Game Of Thrones Bento Hop

As I’m sure you all know, Game of Thrones season 3 starts tomorrow ( or today if you’re lucky and happen to live in America)

So to mark this momentous occasion me and my fellow bento making GoT fans have decided on a blog hop!

Here is my Game of Thrones inspired bento:

20130331-160430.jpg

I thought I’d go for an abstract, chibi look 🙂

This bento contains:
•Lamprey pie ( Steak and Kidney pie).
•Dragon eggs ( hard boiled eggs soaked in tea) guarded by a baby dragon made from cheese and nori.
• The Greyjoy’s Kraken sigil made from cheese and nori.
• The Arryn’s Moon and Falcon sigil made from cheese, ham and nori.
• The Baratheon’s Stag Sigil made from cheese, nori and ham detail.
• The Tyrell’s Flower sigil carved from a radish.
•Cubes of rice and mixed vegetables on a bed of lettuce.

Now as it’s a hop we have all linked to each other so you can go around in an endless, amazing circle of epic Game of Thrones awesomeness 🙂

So click the great image below to sail across the narrow sea toward Karen at What’s In Our Lunch Bags and see what feast she has made!

Three little pigs bento

20120806-001630.jpg

A simple three little pigs bento thrown together with odds and ends. The pigs are pink onigiri with square sausage and nori details. The “grass and road” is made from peas and mince soboro on top of the remaining square sausage and rice ( musubi style ). There are radish Sakura and flowers as well as just slice to fill the gaps 🙂

Second pikachu kyaraben

Here is my second kyaraben 🙂
Yep it’s pikachu again, and although he’s not my favourite Pokemon he is pretty easy to make out of food 🙂
This one is made out of a bed of pea and sweetcorn rice, with a layer of soboro ( ground meat/eggs etc), this soboro is normal beef mince and egg.
There are two radish “pokeballs” and nori as decoration 🙂
