My First Bento
I've always amazed with how Japanese homemaker to spend their time producing such appealing bento or lunch box. Turn the cartoon character into tasteful lunch box, it's just amazing job. For me to go that kind of level, it's not event my dream. :D However, what they've done to make kids can't wait for recess time to have their lunch or to be curious what kind of lunch they brought from home, that's what inspired me to make impressive lunch for my kids.
This's my first bento making, I prepared on their last school holidays for our day trip to Melbourne zoo. Those accessories I bought from online shop through wondrous of ebay. Later on I just realized that those animal picks was really match with the zoo theme. ^_^
That ebi furai actually didn't fit with this pack, so I put in different container, for the family size, since one never enough, complete with small container for the sauce.
For Bella's first day to school, I was wondering how much rice she can eat at school as she always refuse to bring rice to school. I prepared only one and half molded yellow rice. I used jelly mold to form the rice. Accompanied with chicken nuggets and small size of carrots. It's so simple. Can't dig my creativity in the morning.
Nadia has started to go to same school with her big sister. And it's only 3 hours, for her first school day. So I made this simple friendship snack box.
And finally.. this sandwich I prepared this morning for Bella, I only had few minutes to prepared until took Bella to school. Yeah I woke up late. Thankfully Nadia is off, and back to school again tomorrow.
