In this bento: teriyaki chicken meatballs from Aidell's, roasted brussel sprouts with Black Pig Meat Co Bacon, baby carrots, yellow bell peppers, white pomegranate arils from De'Santis Farms, and polenta in the shape of Godzilla.
I darkened the top of the polenta here in Photoshop so you can see the Godzilla shape a little better. I picked up the cutest little jello/custard mold at Daiso and I tried it out with a polenta recipe from Martha Stewart. It worked great! Click here to see Martha's very easy recipe for creamy baked polenta. It will firm up if you chill it in the fridge.
Rraawrr...the godzilla looks really cute ^^ReplyDelete
LOL, I first couldn't notice the godzilla. Thanks for darkening it with ps cs haha. I think it is the godzilla that is in terror if this bento gets on my hands :DReplyDelete
Yesh! Godzilla!! Simply loved your bento! I have a godzilla miniature that throws little plastic wheels :PReplyDelete
Cool idea with the polenta ^_^.
Love the Godzilla, my oldest son will go crazy.ReplyDelete
BTW, I just passed on the stylish blogger award, please come by and claim it ^_^ congrats!!
So cool! I love your Godzilla! Your polenta reminds me that I never tried making Carribean fungee, hopefully if I do get around to making it, it will look this good!ReplyDelete
thanks for the 2nd pic, I was wondering why this bento was godzilla. The mold is so cute! I wonder if it would show if you make rice krispy treats using the mold. hehe. white pomegranate arils huh? Interesting...how does it taste?ReplyDelete
So cute, and the title of this post deserves a special award for most original edible juxtapostion, SB!!ReplyDelete
Would polenta be appetizing with food color added (to make the design stand out)? I was in Sur la Table at Montgomery Village last week, and I was tempted to buy a set of all natural food coloring by a company called India Tree.ReplyDelete
I love it!!! I didn't quite catch it on the first one but saw it in the second (then saw it in the first). Such a cute Godzilla. :o)ReplyDelete
Very pretty. Should start something with polenta:)ReplyDelete
I also want to give you the Versatile Blogger Award for your really brilliant blog http://oishiibentoblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/mein-1-blogger-award.html
Thanks Sysyl! Rrrrawr, hee hee.ReplyDelete
Thanks tatabonita! Yeah, I demolished the poor guy. I couldn't help it! He was tasty.ReplyDelete
Thanks karaimame! That Godzilla toy sounds fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks Lina! I just looked at your blog, I love it! Yep, I am sure the Godzilla would be a hit with your boys.ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather! I've never tried fungee either, sounds cool!ReplyDelete
Hi Mrs. P! The arils are sweeter than the regular pomegranates. And the juice doesn't stain as much. I was pretty impressed with the white pomegranates. :)ReplyDelete
Ha ha! Thanks bentobird! It's fun to read the title of this bento out loud... Godzilla Polenta Bento. Gozilla Polenta Bento. heh hehReplyDelete
Hi dragonmamma! I think food color would not alter the flavor of the polenta, but you might have to be a bit more adventurous to try say a blue colored polenta. But I would try it! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Shannon! Yep, I need to play with this mold a bit and figure out how to make it stand out better.ReplyDelete
Ich danke Dir, Mokiko! Polenta schmeckt ganz gut, probiers mal. :)ReplyDelete
So creative to use jello/custard mold to mold the polenta! I have the same jello/custard mold from Daiso, now I know what to use it for besides making puddings & jelly! Thanks for the idea!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kids Dream Work! I sprayed a bit of cooking spray into the mold to make sure it would come out easily. Give that a try if you go the polenta route. :)ReplyDelete
