I have an online friend, Obsi, who makes the most amazing Bento meals and blogs about it. After seeing her creations for several months we decided to have a try. The pictures are pretty bad, the only camera we could find was the video camera and stills on it aren’t that great. So apologies for the fuzzies.
This is the bottom layer of Dian’s meal. Nutella sandwiches cut into hearts, cherry tomatoes (amazingly still growing in this cold weather), and a bear shaped egg. Biggest lesson here – the extra large eggs that I use for cake making are NOT good for bento, they’re way too big.
Top layer for Dian. Snow Peas, mushroom, carrot, broccoli florets, california rolls with a tiny bottle of soy sauce.
Bottom layer of my dinner – california rolls.
Top layer of mine – a fish and a star moulded eggs (two eggs is way too much), carrot, mushrooms, broccoli florets and snow pea salad, and a bottle of soy sauce.
