Recently I’ve been collecting bento making toolsI’ve always liked bento because of how packed and colourful the lunch boxes are, but I’ve never really tried making them. So I’m starting now ☆
There was some sort of bento fair at the department store, and there were so many cute tools that I took forever to decide. In the end I got three things
A mold for making tamagoyaki, which is pretty useful since I don’t have those rectangular pan things.
A panda sandwich maker called ShokupandaIt’s supposed to be a pun on shokupan, which is that fluffy white bread you get in Japan. I don’t have any shokupan, so my pandas didn’t turn out particularly desirable because of the flaky loaf I used.
And a Rilakkuma rice ball setI like this one a lot because I had first-time success with it unlike the panda maker and my unfortunate sandwich.
I never thought I’d ever shop voluntarily at the kitchen department, but there’s a first time for everything. And it’s all cute characters and stuff, so it still makes sense
Anyway, I tried all the tools I got! Except the tamagoyaki mold, I’m still clueless about that one.
When I made the panda sandwiches I had this fancy idea to turn it into a video like the ones RRcherrypie makes, but it seems like my pandas turned it into a joke instead. And I still uploaded it
Without normal white bread, I only had my rough (and lumpy) wholemeal bread to use so they came out kind of weird. I tried asking my mom for lighter-coloured bread but she wouldn’t get any because the brown stuff is healthier.
My friend brought me a few pieces of white bread from her home so I made them again!
This time I succeeded
And then there’re my little rice Rilakkumas…
They turned out as the box said they would
They were so cute I couldn’t bear to eat them. (ha, ha, ha, pun)
I wouldn’t mind taking a whole bunch of these to school in a lunchbox to eat, but I have no idea how much time I’d need to make so many. Three alone took me long enoughBut it’s only my first time, so I’ll try making them again.
It’s surprisingly fun
