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 Churchâ€™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 didnâ€™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 â€“ 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 Iâ€™ll be having a blog anniverssary giveaway!
Happy bento-ing to all!
