Bento # 23, Bento #24 and Bento #25

This is a backdate from the last few day's bento. This is Ashley and Kimberly's last Friday's bento.

Bento # 23


Photobucket

It's fish nuggets and slices of zucchini and tomatoes. Bread are plainly cut into a bunny shape. Kimberly is on half day today. The meal plan for Friday in school was fried rice. So I thought it be nice for her to have nuggets to go with them.

Ashley have identical food. Because I threw in some bunny shaped plain bread for Ashley, so i did likewise for Kimberly for just in case.

Bento #24

This is Monday's bento

Monday's bento is boiled brocolli, with cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Inside the pink silicon foodcup are some peanut butter sandwhiches which i cut into Hello Kitty shapes. Besides it, some sliced yellow zucchini and lettuce. I saw some at Tesco the other day and thought yellow makes a refreshing change, although Kimberly doesnt mind the colour either way.

I send Ashley to school with biscuits only cos she ate breakfast at home that morning, having woke up early. Her bento is her favourite biscuits, cappucino flavour, no less. Ha ha. I must say it is more pleasing to the palate than the orange flavour ones, the only other flavour they offers. Will try to put it up here as well. Its one of my favourite as well, from Ikea's Cafe.


Bento #25

Tuesday's bento is moulded eggs and salmon rolled up, and steamed carrot with a slice of zucchini (that's the last of the zucchini).

Kimberly spread the bread and rolled it up with salmon herself. It's a bit cracked at the side, but a good effort, despite. I helped her secure it with foodpicks.

Ashley has the same food, except Ashley's moulded egg is the fish mould and Kimberlys' the Pooh Bear's mould. Kimberly get to pick her choice first, as usual.

On that note, I find that the Pooh Bear mould doesnt always come out looking like THE Pooh Bear. It looks like a bear, yea, but not Pooh Bear. I got the same result using bigger or smaller eggs. Wonder if any other bento-er got the same problem with the mould?

Oh, hey guys, for Bento #26, hop over to my new blog at www.allthingspurple.my!

Yup, got myself a new domain !!! Haven't figured out what is the focus for that one yet, so I would be posting from both sides till I decide.

Happy Bento-ing, folks !!

  • Thanks for the ebay link for the bento boxes. Should call them "Pandora Boxes" instead, cos I'm coveting them all. Other than your butterfly and tiara shapes, have shell shapes, mickey ears, etc.... You are a bad, bad influence... haha

  • Hi Allthingspurple, thank you for your warm thoughts in both my postings today. Glad you enjoyed the postings.
    Re the dating rules...if you free and would like to read a love story of a beautiful, matured woman's love for a man half her age, ahemmm, me, I posted a very long, 19 episodes story titled, "A faded letter from the past", d/d 1/4/08, in my archives.

    It took 3 weeks to conclude the story at 2 episodes every three days...next to my wife, this was the most beautiful romance I ever experienced, an unexpected one too.

    There's another story of a woman's search for a mother she last saw at 5 years old, titled, "My tears never dry for you", d/d 12/2/07, in my archives.
    I think you'll find them interesting, and unusual.
    Once again, thank you for your kind thoughts, you have a good weekend...and hugs to Kimberly and Ashley. Lee.
