Three Blind Mice Bento packed in a beautiful Take Bako bento box. This didn’t take me very long to do since I included some leftovers from the day before.
If you don’t mind having leftovers, and are squeezed for time, it is still possible to make cute bentos in the morning before heading out to work.
Over in this bento, what I made fresh this morning were – the three blind mice characters made from hard boiled quail eggs, ham, seaweed and fried pasta stick.
I also made a quick spicy sautéed vegetable dish and boiled some carrot slices, baby corn and sweet pea).
You can use the same pot of hot water to boil the vegetables and also then the eggs. (less to wash up!) :P
Leftovers from the day before packed into this bento were the baked honey chicken wings and egg soboro.
I have to also say that quail eggs are one of my favorite ingredients. They are of a nice small size and I can also color/decorate the eggs to create the characters.
I will come back again to share more about using quail eggs in bento making! Perhaps a simple tutorial! :)
Here are some of my other bento creations using quail eggs:

Hello :) I am Shirley, a bento artist/chef and blogger. I started making bento back in 2011 as getting lunch was very inconvenient at work, and in 2012 my blog, Little Miss Onigiri was born. Bento making is a passion that I am fond of, and excited about. My head is often bursting with ideas on what to make. Even when I visit the supermarkets, I often imagine what I can make out of an ingredient or food product. Character bentos are my forte, but I also enjoy making usual bento lunches, bread, sweets and other decorative food items. If you like kawaii and and fun creations, I am sure you will enjoy my blog postings. I will continue to do my best and thanks for staying with me.
