Bento Love to The Winner

Howdy Doody! It's totally been quite a while?? I am alive!! I survived the tough and harsh summer, lol! Being back here, the first thing I want to do is... post bentos? Nooo. Today I'm going to do an entry about my last giveaway, do you remember? Want to see what I sent to the winner? Not interested in it? Okay I need to share it anyway haha! Here are the items I really enjoyed selecting for the winner.

Two lovely polka dot enamel containers, cute smiling wooden cutlery, a strawberry cooking timer which comes in handy when you have to whip up bento foods, sushi-printed chopsticks which make me giggle, a bento cloth I made, some cookies I made, and a box of both-sides-siliconed baking paper (which is not in the picture).

I'm ashamed I'm not a good sewer, but really wanted to do. I thought this fabric was well-matching for the red white polka dotties.

And I made cookies using our local ingredients... Hokkaido butter, flour, sugar, egg. The name, Hokkaido is such a brand, we are blessed with great local products, especially dairy and farm products. So I'd love to share the yumminess with the winner.

Matcha (powdered green tea leaves) cookies with white chocolate on it. Made out of flour, butter, confectioner's sugar, egg yolk, matcha and Meiji white chocolate.

Crumbly snowballs. Made out of flour, butter, raw beet sugar, egg and almond powder.

All those of you who took part in and jazzed up this event, thank you so much again!
