Hello Kitty Bao Bento


Hello Kitty Bao Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Yes, it's another Hello Kitty bento... but I'm just so excited to be making cute girly bento now for a change! I hope you can bear with me. I'm sure the novelty will wear off sometime soon; after all, I can't possibly think of many more HK ideas. Luckily there are lots of other girly characters we can try. This one looks kind of strange because the steamed chicken bao is pinched on top and there are onions or something on top as well. She looks like she was playing outside and needs a bath soon, hehe! You can use a bao to make her yourself -- it's really very easy and quick. All I did was cut some radish ears, a strawberry flower, grape eyes, yellow pepper nose and then added spaghetti whiskers. Voila, you're done! On the side I added some kiwi flowers, sliced peaches and cherries. I also get to use my Hello Kitty fork that is embossed with her image and name (there's a matching spoon too). Yay!

  16. bcadina, I didn't make; I bought it! So easy to buy around here, I never got around to learning to make.Thank you!

    tatabonita, Granny Hello Kitty? Well, she is pretty old after all! She should start showing her age soon like the rest of us, haha! Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Chantal, she does look peeved, eh? I guess she might not like the grimy look, unlike my girlie... hehe!

    Thanks ilene @ muchloveilly!!

    susan, No, not the bao bento queen! But maybe in terms of sheer number! Love to see your Owls :)

    Thanks Mrs.P; just like our kids, dirty but still cute, right? No more charaben is good for you! Now you can take more time with other aspects. I don't make charaben during the school year. Have no time to plan it out!

    Thanks bentobird! I love using radish, and am glad my kids love the taste!
