Last week I was feeling sick, so Christian volunteered to make Little Sir’s bento for Mother’s Day Out. He did a great job (better than I do sometimes!):
To see all the details in the notes, be sure to click on the picture and you can hover over each item. The roll is a roll of sticky rice (Little Sir LOVES sticky rice!) wrapped in nori (LOVES nori!). Sort of like a sushi roll without the sushi! You can’t see very well, but under the star shaped cheese is a fruit strip with a heart cutout, and under the fruit strip is pineapple chunks. He also gets a cookie with Daddy. Mommy never includes cookies!
I made the bento again this week, and tried to incorporate a Valentine’s theme since they’ll be having their Valentine’s party today. It doesn’t have as much food as usual since their party will include lots of food.
It includes raisins, mangoes, heart-shaped cornbread, pickles, and freeze-dried peas. For some reason, both kids are currently obsessed with freeze-dried peas! Too bad they are so expensive. But I’m glad they’re eating peas nevertheless!
