Bento #61

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 4:01 PM

I find it rather difficult to set the title for today's bento.
Once again, the twins showed a totally different preference over their boxes.
The boy had requested for fried kwee tiaw (a kind of Asian noodle) in blue box and I cooked it with egg, steamed okra and roll kani. A fish-shaped nugget was placed on top of noddle.
He also has some grapes and apples.

Funny story related to his apple. I have done in cutting apple into small pieces, soaked them in salted water and set them aside. I then cooked this noddle and did not exactly put any attention to this apple. While suddenly, I have noticed my youngest boy was walking back and forth from kitchen and living room, with some apple-bites in his hand!
When I laid my eyes on his face, he gave his nicest smile and pleaded "May I have the apple, mommy?" Oh, I couldn't say NO to this face. I thought that he will be satisfied to have one or two pieces, but of course I was wrong. Finally, I saved the last piece for the box and told that he had eaten up all the apples :-D

The pink box contained apple and cinnamon pancake for my girl.
Well, she already had this pancake for breakfast on last Saturday, but she said would love to have it again for today.
Oh, well, I made a couple of pieces for her, put the butter in yellow cup and maple syrup in yellow-cap bottle. She in fact had requested a crown food-pick for her pancake. Yeay...

I do not feel like decorating at all by today. Perhaps due to condition that our child-taker was leaving on yesterday. She returns to her hometown to celebrate Moslem New Year by end of this week. I am still coming to office today, so this morning I feel quite overwhelmed.

Twins are awesome! They are so determine for what they want in their box hehehe ... You will have office break too during Hari Raya right? Hope you will enjoy your time later with the kids without child-taker :)
