Panda Bento

This is my panda bento attempt! I think it looks more like a teddy bear than a panda, probably because of the ears…. but oh well…it looks sort of cute.

Was feeling like I wanted to make a kawaii/qwiyomi type lunch as it has been quite some time that I made one, I think the last one was this Miffy bentoΒ so I guess I need to practice my skills again πŸ™‚

The panda-teddy is made from onigiri and I filled it with an umuboshiΒ plumΒ and added details with nori. He is holding a carrot flower and is “standing” on some Korean meatballs I made & froze earlier this yearΒ (I pack these frozen as they will keep my bento nice and cool and will be defrosted and at room temperature by lunch time).

The other container has some tamagoyaki, more carrot flowers, cherry tomatoes and some raisins, plus there are various bits and pieces of veggies/leaves tucked in around the main items.

Will try and make another panda bento soon!

I now also share more (food) photos on Instagram
