Shooting Star Bentos

These friendly stars are always willing to stop for a chat. Look! One even has green shoes! What a trend-setter!

Movember Bentos

In Australia, there is a significant rise in the number of male 70's porn stars during the month of November. The reason for the saucy increase is The Movember movement,  when men sport living entities on their upper lips to raise funds and awareness for men's health issues, especially prostate cancer and depression.

Upstyling Babybel Cheese

The internet is an amazing source of info!   What did we do without it?  Seriously! life would be soooo BORING! hehehe ^^

I am so grateful because I found Tiffany's Blog: Cute Food for Kids And she has excellent upstyling of Babybel Cheese rounds

Essential kit items: Nori punches

I'm no paper cut artist.  Nor do I have the time. So an essential equipment to have in your bento kit is some nori punches.  Wanna see mine? 

No Bentos for Friday

Because Thursday night I was Drunk!  hehehe hic!  
We were invited by Pep and Ray to a soft launch of a new wine bar in Newtown!
Named the Wine Plate, its found on the western end of King street, towards the uni.   I am ashamed I didn't take a photo of  the gorgeous interior or the pretty light box.  But I did take photos of the lovely food!

Too Cute Fruit

Too Cute Fruit
I found this while surfing for cute fruit. Well if it's cute why wouldn't you eat it?
I like the zebra. I never thought carving the Eggplant would make such contrast! I would try it with Zucchini, Cucumber too. But raw might be a problem... hrm.
must ponder some more.

check out more. Carl Kleiner

Captain T to the rescue!

Quick! Send out the T signal!

Hooray! Here comes Captian T!  He'll save the day!

All edible bar the foil that is suppose to be water - i do draw a line at blue.

New Character: Captian T

Meet Captian T,  a newly created character.   In the mornings Steph and I watch the Today Show, which is hosted bya crazy/funny guy called Karl and the lovely lady with a heart of gold called Lisa.  There are other crew members including Steve, Dickie and Richard who make the it all a bright and funny show.

So I made this bento for the Today T's which they show of people doing a T-sign with their hands.  The banded eyes and cape just came as I was designing.

What do you think?   I rather like him!  and plan to do a series of him doing heroic things :) 

Stay tuned!

Pasta love

Using two new bento boxes today.  I bought these on my crazy excursion to Diaso. $2.80!  far cry from the $8+ I would have to fork out for some pretty tupperware.

Some leftover pasta from dinner, with heart yellow peppers, red cabbage, carrots, snow peas. 

Side dishes include quail eggs, cherries, apple rabbits, and crumbed chicken slices.

Pasta seasoned and drizzled with olive oil, with heart veggies, a snowpea divider keeps the cherries, rabbit apples and quail eggs away
