Last weekend was really a busy one for me. As I mentioned earlier, I was invited to give a bento making demo session in a Church’s annual event and so happened both the boys were down with bad flu. We had to make few trips to the pediatrician clinic and at the same time I had to work on the preparations for the event.
It was tiring but we all had a great time during the event. Yes, the boys tagged along with us too though they were sick just because they didn’t want to miss the magic show which is part of the event.
These were the bentos I made during the demo.
A snowman onigiri bento and a pumpkin egg fried noodle bento.
I landed on these two themes simply because it was a Church event and I thought I shall make something that the audience can re-use the idea for the upcoming celebrations – Halloween and Christmas!
Just to make the bento demo session more interesting, I actually prepared some snacks for the audience. So instead of purely watching, the audience ate too.
I steamed some sausages and decorated them into baby octopuses and sweets.
Besides the sausages, I made some mini sandwiches too decorated with cute cheese bunnies.
I tried to make as much snacks as I could with the limited time I had, but the food still way to little to serve the huge number of people. They were all gone after a while the counter was opened! I wished I could have made more seeing those disappointed little faces (you are right, this counter attracted mostly kids)!
In fact I was glad that this demo actually attracted few really keen mothers and some youngsters too and I hope by then I can spread the culture of bento-ing.
By the way, remember to visit this blog tomorrow as I’ll be having a blog anniverssary giveaway!
Happy bento-ing to all!
