I don’t know if its because of the heart-shaped eyes, but for the first time my hubby text-ed me from work and told me he “LOVE” this morning’s bento!! Yeah! Yeah! That sms really made my day! He said thank you for the “koala bear”?!?! I didn’t intend to make a koala bear but since he said it is a koala so it is a koala lah! Haha
This koala is made from the burger patties that I was inspired by Sheri of Happy Little Bento (http://happylittlebento.blogspot.com/). I stuffed it into the toasted pita which had some of the leftover cheese bits from the eyes and tiny mouth, mayo and lettuce. I used a small little grape for the nose and I guess it’s the nose that made it look like a koala. The burger patties formed the ears and had did a free form cut out of cheese to make it look more like a pair of ears. Not to brag, but those patties were quite yummy.I also tried the sesame trick for eyelashes and it was so fun!! Some of it actually dropped into the box coz I only thought about making the eyelashes when I was assembling the box.
The rest of the bento were made up of lettuce, sugar apricot, cherries and grapes and three pieces of cucumbers. It seems like the koala is looking down at those cucumbers.
Oh and I finally got the promotion letter!!! Yeah! Yeah! Can go stock up on my bento gears already!!!!!
