So I have time for a bento

Posted by Journal Mommy Yenny at 4:34 PM

School holiday is coming...!
Kids will have approximately one month of school break. it comparatively shorter than your summer break? hehehehe.

So, since they are happily to lie longer on the couch *I limit their TV watching session during school days* I find myself to get more of my bento lunches :D

Here is one for breakfast 

Inside the first tier:
Fresh salad from lettuce, orange pepper bell, cherry tomatoes and edamame.
Just sprinkled them with salt, pepper, a splash of lemon and olive oil.

Inside the second tier:
Pan fried Japanese tofu and boiled purple sweet potato
Sprinkled with furikake
Soft boiled egg

I love love love soft boiled egg
I can have it for breakfast and dinner. When I do not feel like to cook, I can eat it with a toast and whatever jam available in my fridge. 

I usually put the egg in a pan full of cold water, before to put them onto fire.
I once let the water boils before dropping the egg. Hm...the egg cracked and I got a hard boiled egg then. I realized the mistake, the egg wasn't in a room temperature. It came straight from the fridge. No wonder it cracked! Now I let the egg to rest a while before to put it into a pan.
When the water boils, I use a timer (or a smartphone!) to wait for 3 minutes. Switch off. Empty the hot water in the pan and re-fill with cold tap water to cool off the egg for a few seconds. I will still get the runny yolk :) yummm..

Happy summer break for everyone... {^,^}
