I participated in another bento making workshop a couple of weeks ago. It was a lazy Saturday afternoon and my out-of-town trip got cancelled so I figured I’d do something productive. I attended a Bento Mommas workshop sponsored by Cheez Whiz last December and it was pretty fun so here I was for another round!
|Lex N Go Collapsible Silicone Cases and Gouache Lunch Bags|
The Lex N Go bento workshop took place at Common Thread in Power Plant Mall. Common Thread carries Lex N Go silicone products and Gouache Lunch Bags (they look fab and they’re insulated!).
Lex N Go Silicone Collapsible Boxes come in different kinds — Lunch Box, Snack Box…
All the participants had a fully equipped bento making station complete with materials. Each of us got to take home a Lex N Go Collapsible Snack Box (P500), a set of Lex N Go Cake Holders (P380), and a Gouache Lunch Bag (P750) too! 😀
Look at the cute cutters! They come in different shapes and sizes.
We were each given a cup of freshly cooked white rice and taught how to turn them into balls. We wrapped it in a clean sheet of plastic and shaped it into a sphere.
Then we put the rice ball on top of a nori (seaweed) sheet which we cut into a circular shape.
Then we wrapped the nori sheet around the rice ball to cover it completely.
So we were instructed to attach the triangle onto the rice ball using uncooked spaghetti.
We cut cheese singles into eyes and a nose. Wow, it’s actually pretty easy making a cat’s head rice ball like this one!
After the cat rice ball head is done, you put in other food items. We had steamed broccoli, chicken teriyaki, and grapes which I set up on top of the cat head.
Yay me, I succeeded in making another bento! Well, I didn’t cook any of the stuff I put in it but hey it’s a start hahaha! My son did eat it all when I brought it home though.
Thank you Lex N Go for having me!
