爱。开心便当のLovey Dovey

今天是农历七月初七, 这一天是中国的一个传统节日 – 七夕节。七夕节是中国传统节日中最具浪漫色彩的一个节日。在晴朗的夏秋之夜,天上繁星闪耀,一道白茫茫的银河象天桥横贯南北,在河的东西两岸,各有一颗闪亮的星星,隔河相望,遥遥相对,那就是牵牛星和织女星。 七夕坐看牵牛织女星,是民间的习俗,相传,在每年的这个夜晚,是天上织女与牛郎在鹊桥相会之时。现又被认为是“中国情人节”。

VALENTINE’S Day in China, the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, falls on August 16 this year.  The Chinese people believe that the star Vega(织女星), east of the Milky Way, is Zhi Nu and, at the constellation of Aquila(天鹰座), on the western side of the Milky Way, Niu Lang waits for his wife.  That is, today evening, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu will meet on a bridge of magpies(鹊桥) across the Milky Way(银河). Chinese grannies will remind children that they would not be able to see any magpies on that evening because all the magpies have left to form a bridge in the heavens with their wings.

虽然是一则传说,可是织女与牛郎的故事让我们深深的感受到恩爱的情侣被逼分开的痛苦,这是一则很感人肺腑的故事。希望现实中,所有有情人都能“开花结果,有情人总成眷属”。🙂
哈哈。。。说回便当吧。。。今早为了“符合”七夕节的浪漫,我做了一对恩爱的鸽子浪漫缠绵在一起。
我是依照以下这张巧克力包装纸而做成的。。。看着两只可爱的爱鸽,令我想起情人节,可是2月14日已过,既然今天是“中国情人节”,那么也是可以哦。🙂
便当里有一份鸡蛋火腿三文治、两粒樱桃和苹果。 我把白土司、煎蛋和火腿切成和便当盒一样的形状,白土司里夹着一些生菜和煎蛋,然后在最上层放上火腿让我可以做成图片的背景。接着用普通的起司割出两只鸽子的形状,用BBQ起司割出树枝叶子、鸽子眼睛和鸽子的肚子。简单容易的步骤。。。
我也在苹果上用一个心形的小模型割出心形来配合“爱的主题”。。。呵呵呵! :p
Inside the bento, there are ham & egg sandwich, 2 cherries & a slide of  apple. I am using the above chocolate wrapping paper as a guideline to trace the doves & the leaves from the cheddar  cheese, & placed them on the top of a slide of ham for the sandwich. Simple & easy steps.

祝大家:情人节快乐,七夕节浪漫多多!!!
