Angel Bento (346)

I had said I’d be drawing a new winner for Life Without Plastic’s giveaway today, but I’m postponing that until tomorrow so that I can announce the new winner at the same time I do a review of their gorgeous wooden bento box. Last night we had Korean food from Kim Chee and I didn’t really want to use takeout leftovers for the review.

Angel Bento

In addition to the leftover meat jun I’m eating today, I have an angel to brighten up my lunch. She’s made out of two kinds of cheese, bologna, and nori. Flying around with her is a little winged piggy filled with meat jun sauce and I put a little music not next to her, though I didn’t have time to make her a harp.

I put the rice in first after heating it up under a wet paper towel to make it easy to move around. Then I sliced the meat jun up because it was in gigantic chunks and layered it in. I put the bean sprouts and cabbage in at the top and then put a couple of small strawberries on top for some color. It was still a little drab though, so I added sliced cucumber kim chee for some green.

I cut her wings out from an angel cookie cutter I have and the dress is made from a circle trimmed with an oval cutter. Her arms and legs are cut from my food wheel arms using the elbow end instead of the hands because they were too big. I punched her face (OMG I’m SO mean!) out with one of the new mini punches I got. Those are so useful! At first I thought they were too tiny, but they are so great for little food characters!

Lost spoilers under the cut!

Last night was so awesome and the van was in the episode so much that I’m glad I did that yesterday. I totally did NOT see the Miles/Chang thing coming. When it happened I actually paused the TiVo to say, “Ho ho ho, I didn’t see that coming!!” Mr. Pikko knew, but he’s a smarty pants!

    Girl! Where you been? EVERYBODY knew Miles was Chang’s son! You must have been too busy making the best Bento on the Web. Oh well, can’t have it all!

    Psst….Daniel is Eloise’s son.

  • I knew Eloise is his mom, they spell it right out. šŸ˜› And I also get that “Ellie” on the island is Eloise.

    I wasn’t the only one surprised!!

  • BTW Aimee, it was actually a really awesome feeling to not know, cause I had such a great OMG WHOA! moment! šŸ˜€

    nice angel.

    Pikko, I have to agree with you. The ep. was sort of a let down for me cause that reveal wasn’t so surprising for me. See…that’s what I get for reading too much ahead of time. ; ( BUT…I have no idea what’s in store for us the last 3 shows…except someone we love is gonna bite it. No idea…I better go learn how to make rice and shut the heck up. LOL

  • Lost spoiler warning = good.

    I’m catching up! almost done with season 3!

  • Aimee S.

    Sorry everybody! Pikko, I promise NOT to say anything about Lost on here anymore! Please forgive me for being so daft!
