Angry Birds 'The Sequel'

This is my 2nd Angry Birds post and here is my older one. I had this idea from my friend, because he requested me to make one for him. As usual, he only can enjoyed it from the picture. :)

Inside the box: Rice, meatballs, potato, broccoli, and grapes. I used ketchup for red color and egg yolk for yellow color.

The one who enjoyed the bento is my daughter Elaine..she was really happy when she ate it and she loved the  meatballs. 

I've been thinking to submit this bento to Contest: Via col bento , which is held by: Kitty's Kitchen and Semplicemente Pepe Rosa. The Contest will end on Thursday, June 2nd.

Here is the recipe for the meatballs.
Mama El's Meatballs


350 grams beef ( cut in cubes )
1 tbs margarine
1 pcs small white onion ( chopped )
1 egg
2 . 5 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tsp nutmeg
½  tsp cumin seed
3 tbs panko ( Japanese breadcrumbs )
Oil for frying, enough to cover  1/2 of the meat balls

1 tbs white onion ( cut thin )
1 tsp oil for sautéing
 Mix in 1 bowl:
2 tbs ketchup
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs sugar
1 cup water
 Corn flour diluted in water

For Meatballs:
1.       Put all the ingredients in the food processor until it blend thoroughly.
2.       Make small balls with 2 spoon.
3.       Heat oil in a frying pan, fry the meat balls.

For Sauce:
1.       Heat oil in frying pan.
2.       After the oil become hot, sauté the white onion
3.       Put the mixed sauce
4.       Put the diluted corn flour to thickened the sauce.

The sauce is pour on top of the meat balls ( for bento, you can separate it in a sauce container )

You can eat the meat balls with boiled green beans, boiled carrot and fried potato ( all cut in string ).

I also put this meatballs in my yesterday bento "Happy Monday"
The good things about the meatballs, you can make it a days ahead and put in the freezer. When you need it, just reheat in the microwave. :)
