Little monkey couple bento

September 1, 2010


Today´s bento is built up with food I cooked for dinner. My family like meatballs a lot and the homemade type are the best ones in our opinion :) (plus, I can build up a very good freezer stash )

The Finnish way of making meatballs differs a bit from the usual meatballs recipe. I mean.. at least I use “kermaviili” ( the finnish curd cream. It is something in between crème fraîche and yoghurt ) to moist the breadcrumbs before adding the rest of the ingredients. Trust me, it is very good!

This time I used chicken mince, breadcrumbs, oatmeal and chopped parsley to make the balls ( *shh* don´t tell my girls! ;)

The contents of the boxes: homemade chicken meatballs (monkey head shaped), rice, cooked edamame, corn, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, boiled carrots tossed in butter and a container with a little ketchup.

The faces of the little monkeys are made with cheese and details in nori.

Aren´t them cute? ^_^
