I've been selling the homemade-food for these 5 months, and receive orders for bento too. Hubby said, i should make small packages of bento to sell, not only by orders. But i've been too busy with baking and making snacks, so that i have no time left to do that thing. Until yesterday, one of BentosiAyah's friend, tagging me to her picture. That picture showed how she makes bento as her newly-business, inspire by BentosiAyah at first. What a great creativity! Here's the picture :
|Windi's bento caterings. She makes this only by order. Same like BentosiAyah at her first catering step, but using the permanent tiers, instead.|
Those are awesome, aren't they? So, after seeing that picture, Hubby's idea for making bento packages are sparking again. Thanks to Windi. I've found out, that making snacks more tired than cooking. So i think, why not, let's try to make a simpler bento and the cheaper ones off course. Usually, i made regular bentos. With regular size too. A portion that enough for lunch. But now, i also make the mini size of bento. Like snacks, but healthier and more filling. A portion is enough for a simple breakfast. These are the mini bentos :
A portion of mini bento contains of 1/3 part of grains (onigiri), 1/3 part of vegetables (today, i made chayote curry. With kyuri and rainbow salad), 1/3 part of protein (grilled fish, and egg stew) with candied papaya as the dessert. So, i assure you, this bento is 100% healthy. :D
I make carrot as the beaks and the topknots of the onigiri-chicks, while nori as the eyes. Hubby said, these were hot-sale this morning. What a happy me :D LOLs.
These are the reviews of hubby's bento for today.
See the color? Yes, i love it too ^____^. I know, i've ruined the arrangement. Since i make the mini bentos, hubby' bento exists in distended position--for me to arrange. And i didn't have any time left for that. As usual, i just put those there, and let the camera plays the part :D. Hubby said, orange-yellow-green and red are the colors that evoke appetite. And it's happening to me now.. i'm in terribly starving :D LOLs.
in his main tier, there are same menus with mini bentos. But in bigger portion--offcourse. Let me share you how to make the egg-stew of BentosiAyah :

This is hubby's salad tier. I put rainbow salad (or ribbon salad, or let's say : rainbow ribbon salad) and home made-candied papaya. As usual, on Wednesday, I also made another tiers for hubby's coworkers with same menu. That's all :) Hopefully he'll enjoy today's bento :D Happy Wednesday girls!!
