Hard-boiled egg makes woman squeal (Wednesday bento)
The hard-boiled egg molds (they are called "Easy Boiled Egg Shapers") I ordered arrived last week. As you can see, I got four different ones - car, fish, bunny and bear.
How to use Easy Boiled-Egg Shapers:
- Hard-boil your egg.
- Peel the egg while it is still hot.
- Place the egg in the mold.
- Leave the egg in the mold in cold water for 10-15 minutes.
I have to confess, I literally squealed with excitement and joy when I opened the mold up and saw this plump bunny face looking back at me.
Jac was pleased to see how thrilled I was, but she said she'd rather not eat a hard-boiled egg that had a face! Heh. I guess I'll keep bear and bunny for me and give her car. Not sure how she will feel about fish. :)
She didn't need lunch on Wednesday as she had the day off and was planning to go shopping and grab a bite while she was out, so I just had to organise a bento lunch for myself.
So this is what I had- leftover beer battered chips (some of you may think this is gross or weird, but I love eating them cold!), mushroom, blanched sugar snap peas, hard-boiled egg, soy sauce (notice the bunny theme? :-P), sour gherkin pickles, baby cos and cherry tomatoes. I was a little paranoid about my egg "unbunnying" itself, so I'd left it in the egg shaper in the fridge overnight.
I filled the other tier with the stir-fried soba noodles left over from Tuesday's dinner.
I packed my matching yellow chopsticks this time, as I'd need them. I ate the entire lunch cold. I always put my bento in the fridge as soon as I get to work, but I then take it out twenty minutes or so before and let it de-fridge a little before eating. I really enjoyed this meal. The noodles were a little slippery for those wee plastic chopsticks, but I managed. :)
I promise I will reply to all your recent comments very soon!
