Miss Bunny Sandwich Bento

Bentou-ing has slowed down the last few days in view of the school holiday. I must admit it has been grand being able to sleep in till 8 everday instead of waking at 6 to fix the kids' bento. It was because I had needed to get Kimberly ready for school and her bento box, if any, need to be out by 7 too. And Ashley's bento was packed at the same time although she needn't be out of the house that early but might as well while I was at it.

However, since Ashley is now enjoying having the same food as her schoolmates, I didn't want to be a killjoy. I decide to pack bento her only occasionally and for out and about instead. And perhaps for lunch.

Bento #106


This is Kimberly's lunch. During the school holidays, she had needed to go into the office with me every now and then and it makes sense to pack her a bento meal instead of spending time ta-pauing and pouring them out on plates or bowls.

Encouraged by the earlier Miss Piggy bento, where I have discovered that cutting out details didn't entail that much time after all, I decide to fix some features on her sandwich as well. This took me an extra 5 minutes only, but doesn't the extra 5 minutes make a huge difference to her otherwise normally featureless bento!


Kimberly is having 2 large prawn fritters and 2 gyoza (also fried, to ease the workload. I added some carrots in the steamer while frying the food, and cut out the bunny sandwiches.

Those are cheese bunny sandwiches. I figured the cheese can make up for the lack of dairy in her diet the last few days.

Her Miss Bunny has nori sparkly eyes, carrot nose and cheese hair bow.

Since Kimberly likes carrots a lot, I topped the bento meal with a few more floral carrots.


Added 2 strawberries for fruits.

It is rather pleasurable to see the kids' expression of enchantment when they open up their bento boxes, particularly after their Miss Piggy's bento. I probably will endevour to pack more kyaraben bento for her from now on, with time's permit, of course.

Happy bentou-ing, all ! Have a great week ahead !

  • Any kid will love to have that cute bunny sandwich leh. :) It does make a lot of difference if we add in some cutie details, if time permits! I still can't manage to get everything done in 15 minutes, including cooking.

  • Hi Amy, well, after bentoing for so long,I can make a speed bento around approximately 15 min give or take, including cooking cos I usually cook simultaneously. I normally use one fryer food item, one oven food item or one gas stove boiling food item. That leaves time to cut and slice. Try this trick. it may work.

    Hey, Ms.__2 be! , thanks !

  • Thanks for your kind word, your blog. the comment box thingy is still acting upthough.

    heehee..icfamily5, I took a bento break over the school holiday too.

    By Blogger allthingspurple, At 3:38 PM  

  • Haha..Bonnie, having discovered that it doesnt take up much more time, I may be tempted to do more kyaraben in the future.

    Hi Adrine, waking up at 6am not just to fix bento LOL..kid need to get out by 7am to go to school too

    By Blogger allthingspurple, At 3:40 PM  

  • 3lilangels, I am not far behind cos I have been feeding my kids fast food during hols too.

    Thanks, Mummy to QiQi, the meals usually takes about 15mins only. most are just cutting with cutters and slicing. The rest can just dump in the fryer or in the boiler
