Making Kyaraben: Spam Rilakkuma

zhewitra ed pills from edwebstore Today’s bento is a Rilakkuma-themed spam musubi bento.

Spam musubi, is a rice ball with spam on top. There is usually a piece of seaweed wrapped around it to affix the spam to the rice.
Rilakkuma doesn’t look exactly happy about his spam-fate…But that shouldn’t stop you from trying your hand at this bento!

Ingredients:

  • rice
  • spam (put it in a fry pan and get the sides a little bit crispy)
  • quail egg (If you don’t have quail eggs, you can use a chicken one. The size will just be different)
  • sliced ham
  • snap peas
  • hot dog- cut the tips off, put cuts in them and boil.
  • sliced carrot- slice it about 1 cm thick and boil it to make it soft. (you can boil it when you boil the hot dog)
  • cherry tomato
  • edamame
  • sliced daikon- (or slice cheese, if you don’t have daikon)
  • seaweed
  • mayonnaise
  • raw spaghetti

 

Things you will need:

  • A bento box - tupper ware also works
  • A knife
  • chopping board
  • scissors (that you can use for food)
  • tooth picks
  • saran wrap
  • a straw
  • cookie cutter (star-burst shape or flower shape…if you have one!)

①材料

 

Get out your ingredients. First time ever buying Spam? Welcome to the island lifestyle. Use it for breakfast, lunch or dinner! It goes great in stir-fry.

 

②人参

 

Take your boiled slice of carrot and use your cookie cutter to take the edges into a pretty shape. Take a straw and stamp out holes around the sides. (SAVE SOME OF THE CIRCLES YOU CUT OUT FOR DECORATION)

 

③ハム卵

 

Cut your slice of ham so that it becomes strips. Fold the strips in half and take a knife to make cuts down the folded side so that a fringe develops (see the picture below)

 

④ハム卵

 

Take the ham and wrap it around your egg like in the picture below. You want the fringe edge to be facing up. Take a piece of raw pasta and use it to hold the ham in place.

 

⑤ハム卵

 

Take your rice and separate it into lumps to go under your piece of spam. Take saran wrap and use it to form the rice into a shape that will fit nicely under the slices of spam that you have prepared.

 

⑥ごはん

 

Cut out daikon into muzzles for Rilakkuma and the seaweed to make eyes and the black part of the muzzle.

 

⑦顔パーツ

 

Take your rice and spam and join them together with a band of seaweed.

Take your bento ingredients and arrange them in your box. Cutting snap peas on a diagonal makes them look a bit more whimsical.

 

⑧お弁当詰め

 

Take the seaweed, daikon and leftover carrot punch-outs and attach them to your bears. It the pieces are not staying on well by themselves, use a dab of mayonnaise as an edible adhesive.

 

⑨完成

 

There you go! You have a great East-meets-West bento of spam musubi.

But more important than that, you have a great kyara-ben! (character bento)
