Love Is In The Air

It's already February now, usually people associate this month with the Month of Love. I think i will see many Love theme bento this month. Do you agree with me? Today i tried to make one too, it's about a girl and a boy who filled with lots of love. Inside the box: Rice onigiri, pork woku, sausage flower, blanched broccoli and carrot. I put mango yoghurt in the pink cup and love cupcake sprinkles on top of it.

Mama El's Pork Woku Recipe.
3/4 kg Pork
4 pcs lemon grass
1.5 handful Basil
Lime juice
10 pcs lime leaves
2 leeks, cut 3cm
1/2 cup water

Ground Paste:
15-20 pcs shallots
8-10 pcs candle nut
1 tsp ground turmeric
5 bird's eye chili ( could be substitute with 1/2 paprika for those who doesn't like spicy )

1. Cut cube the pork, sprinkle with lime juice.
2. Mix the pork from step 1 with ground paste, lime leaves and lemon grass.
3. Put the pork in the pan, put water and simmer until tender ( Stir occasionally to prevent the pork sticking to the bottom of the pan)
4. After tender, put in the leeks and basil and cook it for 10 minutes more.

I will enter today's bento to a bento contest held by Japan The Wonderland. Wish me luck, friends..
