Bottom: steamed carrots and broccoli, fish-shaped hardboiled egg, crab-shaped mini-hotdogs
Inset: noodle soup in action!


[bento bowl with soup assembled]A quickie bento -- noodles and soup packet were from the refrigerated section at H Mart (I forget which brand). I used my microwave steamer to cook the carrots and broccoli, and an egg mold and hotdog cutter to make the fish and crabs. Easy peasey!

Hint for hotdog cutters: to reduce the loss of appendages, put the hotdogs in the freezer for 10 minutes and coat your cutter with cooking spray before use.
