It is bento time

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 11:15 PM
Finally... yeay...I post this.
I did not specifically in time and space to do bento.
For some time in the past, I have done one or two.
Lately the thinking of it become so intense, although my children do not have eating problem,
I am doing this, as an expression of love towards them, our sweethearts.
The eldest are pair-twins, Luna and Jovann, they are in kindergarten now.
The youngest is Sebastian, a cute boy, not get into school yet.
So, I'll make bentos for the twins


Pink box for Luna and blue box for Jovann, their favourite colours
Fried rice with frozen mixed vegetable
The boy always had bigger portion than the girl ha ha ha.
It is his nature to eat so much despite of his petite figure.
On the side is beef floss and sliced strawberry.
The girl loves strawberry so much


I am learning to slice quail egg in style, also the sausages.
White rice with chicken katsu, steam baby corn and carrot, including three pieces of red grapes.
hm...I love the food picks. I should remind kids to bring them back afterwards.
Apparently, the lunch boxes are too much, because the kids said, they were unable to finish their lunch..! haa...perhaps it was suitable as my bento box..


hm, I must admit, working with punches is fun...although my punchers are few, I am still learning to use them.
This time menu was fish (salmon) cake. Minced salmon mixed with some flour, an egg and some water, add a pinch of salt and pepper before drop one spoonful into hot oil to deep fry them. The kids just love it.


The kids had sore throat, thus I made clear vegetable soup for them
ouch, I do not have small cup with lid, to put the soup in
Looked not quite nice...I should find the cup very soon... also the right puncher to create happy face...


Fried noodles....!
One of their most-enjoyed food. On top of noodles was boiled kani sticks
I put parsley together with steamed baby corn and oreo pudding
It turned out that kids hated the strong smell of parsley and did not touch their foods.
Ouch...I should not put parsley into their box again...:-(


The tricky part, was to peel and shape the oranges.
Even though they do not despise fruits and veggies, I always encourage them to have a balance meal. Lucky me, they are relatively easy to be told so. I just said "eat your fruits and veggies and you will grow taller each day!" and they will nod their heads in agreement.

Hopefully, I can do this on regular basis (read as: weekdays)
It is true that I should get up earlier every morning to prepare their boxes, but the efforts are paid-off by their amazed faces.

... until next time ...
