|Bento No. 234|
Needless to say, the bento's theme for today would have something to do with our country - Singapore. The flag is carved on an apple wedge sitting nicely on top of cara cara oranges. Not perfect but at least the stars were more visible than last year's bento ;) What does a toddler knows about National day? I queried my boy and the answers were 'helicopter and parachute'. So I decided to make a helicopter with brown rice onigiri. Strips of cucumbers for the rotor blades and secured it with a musical note foodpick. Stars carrots to mark the celebration. In addition, there were also blanched cauliflower and french bean to fill the gaps. Lastly, a lion foodpick that represents Singapore is a Lion City.
Happy Birthday Singapore!!
