Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Everywhere it is about  Valentine’s Day gifts
I am excited by seen many Valentine’s Day recipes, DIY & Craft projects .Few weeks ago I saw this match boxes idea in a pinterest  board and really attracted to it. This idea is good as a kids' project which kids can involve to prepare the cute boxes.I guess this is good to share the love with nursery friends during the Valentine's Day! With Edible Gifts for Valentine's Day,chocolates take the first place,so I used some chocolate hearts to fill the boxes.

Bento # 10 - Turtles & Penguins in a Bento

These days I don’t do much cooking. Even though I cook, I don’t get enough time for a photograph. Anyway I captured this as a quick bento to participate with Bento Blog Network weekly event. It is exciting to participate with those weekly linky parties. I always find new blogs & ideas by participating with those parties. And there are few parties I always like to join with.

This week’s theme is ‘Reptiles’, however the only adorable reptile I could think of in a bento box is a ‘turtle’. :)

This turtle is of orange, grapes & carrots on a slice of bread.

However I added some grape penguins too.

Grape penguins are easier to make. I have seen many posts using cream cheese & olive to make these penguins as an appetizer. Similarly I used some cheese strip inside a grape & used a tooth pick to connect grapes as a penguin.
Beak & eyes are from carrot pieces.

 Turtle Bento is ready!!

Bread Baskets

I found this recipe last Saturday from Recipe Lion & wanted to try it for tea time as an evening snack. It was very easy to prepare & a good way to use some bread slices left from morning.Anyway my recipe is adapted from the original recipe & with some changes in ingredients.

Ingredients (for 6 bread Baskets)

6 slices of bread
Few sliced red bell pepper
Few sliced green bell pepper
Few sliced tomato
Shredded Cheese
Salt pepper to taste

First allow to pre heat oven for 400F.
Remove the edges of the bread.
Apply butter on bread.
Arrange the bread slices on cupcake baking pan. Keep the butter applied side as outside of the basket.
Now there is a space in bread basket.
Fill the baskets with mixed red, green bell pepper & tomato slices. Sprinkle some salt & pepper as per choice.

Top with shredded cheese (Treat the bread basket as a pizza base & use a mix of your choice to fill together with cheese)

Bake in 400F for 15-20 minutes.
Now it is ready to serve.

I used some cupcake cups to serve as it gives some finishing appearence. :)

Bento #6- Birthday themed Bento

Today Bento is with the theme –Happy Birthday. I started to prepare Bento after  inspired with Bento Blog Network’s weekly event. The theme for the next week is ‘Happy Birthday’ & this theme is special for me too. Reason is few days ago Food Corner Facebook page celebrated 1st birthday. Happy Birthday Food Corner!!!

Anyway in this Bento, I haven’t used any special food. They are everyday food. But I used silicone cupcake covers to pack food thinking they are birthday cupcakes.
These birthday food cupcakes include,
1) Egg chick – Hardboiled egg decorated with carrot eyes & beek, tomato hat & stay in a lettuce nest.
2) Few grapes
3) Plain white rice, cucumber slices & topped with a grape
4) Boiled chick peas topped with a grape.
5) Tooth picks inserted red cherry tomatoes to represent the balloons.

It didn’t take much time to prepare this. But I enjoyed it a lot.

I am happily sharing with following events.

Bento #5 - Angry Birds

This week theme for bento at Bento Network is ‘Angry Birds’.
I was not sure how to make them as they have many details to show. :)
When I searched online, I saw many ‘Angry Birds’ bento, and they were really beautiful. But I knew I cannot make them with such details. They are really looking like ‘Angry Birds’ & I loved all those posts.
Anyway finally I could decide on my own ‘Angry Birds’ bento & I could do it within 10 minutes.
I am not sure whether they look as angry birds. Specially red angry bird is too round in shape.

For the red angry bird- Water melon cut as a round, grapes & carrot strips, piece of cabbage
White angry bird (round face) – Half of a hardboiled egg, grapes & carrot strips
Triangular face angry bird- A cheese wedge with carrot & grapes slices

To complete this meal, some plain rice & grapes were added
What do you think? Do they look like angry birds? :)

This recipe was featured at Very Good Recipes as best bento

Bento #4 - Christmas themed Bento

Here is my new Bento for this week & it is of Christmas theme.
First I added plain white rice as a thin layer.

Then it consists of,
Snowman made from hardboiled egg, eyes are from a ham & I used a straw to cut them
Gingerbread man made out of a chicken picnic ham & using a cooking cutter
Christmas themed stockings made from a cooked chicken sausage & decorated with some cheese
Reindeer from cooked sausage
Some carrot slices
I have added some lettuce, but they are nearly white in colour, so cannot see clearly in photos.
A piece of tomato

To decorate it more, I wanted to use some picks. And here is a tutorial on how to make beautiful picks at home.
Anyway I didn’t use stickers as in tutorial. They are beautiful, but I am not sure how they react with warm food & after closing the box.
Therefore I tried to use edible & colourful picks. So they are some colorful candy inserted into tooth pics. And I found some Christmas themed candy.To highlight the theme Christmas; I used a santa shaped candy inserted in a small pick.
