The Mickey Mouse bento

I received a message this morning from IM,who shared with me the Hello Kitty bento she made for her girl, using a Hello Kitty sandwich cutter. Having just woken up, a little late today, as I was real lucky the rascal upstairs did not wake me up at 7am. This rarely occurs so I was glad for the extra sleep I got.

I didn't know what to do for Princess' bento, so decided to 'borrow' IM's idea by making a sandwich with my Mickey mould, which is similar to IM's. While digging out the mould from the bottom of the pile of cutters I have, I found Mickey veggy cutters as well, so decided to use them for the blanched carrots and dragonfruit. I'm using my new Stitch picks, so you could call it a Disney-themed bento. Haha.

I wanted something savoury for her today thus I decided to make a ham & cheese sandwich and toasted it in the oven for a bit. I didn't leave it in for too long, else it will be too hard by time she eats it 3 hrs later. I just wanted to heat it enough to melt the cheese.

I bought a box of black cherries yesterday as they were selling it cheap at NTUC. Princess loves them, so they are in the bento today. The cherry tomatoes are cut in half with kyuri in the middle. This idea I 'stole' from HK as I thought they looked really pretty. Unfortunately I only have one colour of cherry tomatoes. It'll look prettier with different-coloured ones.
