My first bento

This was the very first bento I made, four months ago. I was so proud of it I decided to start a blog about it.

这是小兔儿四个月前做的第一个便当。实在激动不已就开了个博客。

I guess it went well so far ;)

到目前为止状况还算良好;)

I can’t remember the weather on the 29th of November. But I was happy. Two months prior, We moved into the new flat. We fell in love at first sight with the dark wooden floor and the peaceful yard outside the balcony. The City is just minutes away. It was like a nice and quiet sanctuary secretly hidden underneath the big crowd.

对十一月二十九日没有什么印象了,只记得那时候很开心。刚搬家两个月,实在太喜欢新家了。深色的实木地板,阳台外安静的花园,金融区只有一步之遥——尘嚣下的隐秘庇护所。

OK, back to the bento. Although I was happy, but my refrigerator was not: we were running out of stock. Let’s see what we have got left:

回到便当。生活是充实的,除了冰箱以外:快要弹尽粮绝了。

  • half lettuce 半个生菜
  • a few rashers of streaky bacon 几条五花培根
  • a block of mature cheddar 一块熟芝士
  • a small pack of spinach 一小包新鲜菠菜

In the fridge:

  • frozen sweet corn 冷冻甜玉米粒
  • a pack of oven-bake fried prawns – Michael’s life-saving snack when I’m not around… 大狮子的“救急用”速食炸虾

This reminded me that I’ve seen so many times the picture of ‘spinach bacon rice rolls’ on food forum which was also shared on social websites. Mix cooked rice with toasted sesame and blanched spinach, then roll it with a thin rasher of bacon, then fry the roll to make the bacon seal. Sounds easy but it’s not – the bacon doesn’t stick to itself so it always let loose at the end. I guess the bacon I bought was too lean, it didn’t have much fat to burn to get sticky. It took me a while to make it sit still like this in the picture. You can also use a cocktail stick to fix it.

这些让我想起在很多网站上转载的同一幅图片:培根菠菜卷。把菠菜、芝麻和米饭搅拌均匀,用培根卷起来,在锅里煎熟,做成一个卷。听上去很简单,其实并不是——培根并不会自己和自己粘起来,总是会散开。可能我用的培根太精瘦了,没有那么多油脂可以起到粘合剂的作用。费了好大力气才把它们摆成图片里那样。其实用牙签固定也可以。

The hearts look lovely and I’m sure they got a lot of attentions from the readers. It’s in fact the easiest part: sliced cheddar cut by heart-shaped cookie cutter.

两个可爱的桃心是最吸引眼球的地方。其实就是用cookie cutter切出来的芝士片。

Ready-meals in the fridge always come handy when making bentos ;)

冰柜里的速食食品总是很方便,尤其是放在便当里。

I love rice – my drawing canvas. Sprinkle some furikake and mix well, fill the rice in a heart-shaped mould and release the mould. Place the heart-shaped rice in the middle, and fill the blank with more rice. Or anything you like.

我喜欢白饭——就好像我的画布一样。撒上日本的拌饭料,搅拌均匀,用心形的模子压成型,放到饭盒中间。再用白饭把其他地方填上,除了白饭还可以有很多别的选择。

I will write more next week about the other bentos I made. Easter has been very short!!! =D

下周再继续分解其他的便当。复活节过得真快!
