Bento 110: Speedy Bunnies
This is the ultimate speed bento. I was in a big hurry yesterday night as I needed to devote some time studying- bleah. With leftover stirfried cabbage & fried rice from dinner, what could be easier than pack it all into a leftover bento?
I shaped my fried rice into an onigiri – I incorporated diced peppers,sweetcorn & dwarf beans into my fried rice to add color and interest. I stuck a bunny cheese on it – can you see how bad my cutout features are? I will be sticking with nori features in the future – the bunny look as weird as well. I added two bunny picks that a dear bento friend sent me; and voila;; DONE! I filled most of the MRB with stirfried veggies – nothing better than filling yourself up with veggies! A small section in the MRB holds some tomatoes and radish which also helps to add color. The orange for dessert wraps this meal up; and go with the Year of the Rabbit Chinese New Year theme (oranges are very popular during Chinese New Year as it sounds like ‘gold’).
This took me a total of 5 minutes to make. How easy is that? Even ordinary leftovers can be jazzed up with a little effort!
