Bento #03 : Bee bento
I made this as a lunch box for our trip to Bandung. My hubby's cousin was having a wedding party in Bandung. Of course we would have to attend the wedding. The journey was actually only 2 hours by car. But I guess I need to bring her lunch box. Just in case, there was traffic.
This was by far the most complicated bento I made.
When I saw the bee bento picture in the bento book, I thought it would be quite simple to create. But boy I was wrong. The egg sheet was too thick and made it hard to roll the rice in it. The experience of stuffing a lunch box until packed was also quite difficult. Luckily I had some broccoli to fill the gap. I used monster meatball, smoked ham, rolled omelette and steamed veggies as the filler.
Cinderella's cousins were also coming with us in this trip. And they were so amazed to see the bento. There was "Oohhh" and "Ahhhh.. cute!" Cinderella was very proud. She ate everything.
The only thing that was a disappointment was the melting cheese. Anyone knew how to prevent the cheese from melting?
