Toddler's Bento # 50

Bento #50 is Ashley's bento.

Ashley's bento is steamed corn and leftover pizza. A girlfriend came over to stay last week for the night as hubby was outstation. Being too lazy to cook and being too lazy to eat out, we ordered pizza instead. I froze some leftovers to stash for future fast meals, so I thought Ashley could have a pizza today for her bento instead.


I steamed the corn yesterday night, thinking to speed things up in the morning. But the colour doesn't look so good this morning. Next time I will just have to deshucked them at night and steam them in the morning instead.

For dessert, I gave Ashley a layered rainbow coloured agar-agar. The kids prefer agar-agar to jelly.


According to Kimberly's school's meal plan for this week, she will be having macaroni and cheese in school. I figure she won't be needing a bento today. I gave her some pretzel for breaktime instead. Since breaktime is at 9.20 am and lunch is at 12.20, I didn't want to stuff her tummy too full, else she will be discarding an almost full tray at the tray counter.

Hubby didn't want a bento today. I think he is rather tired of eating in. ha ha.

So that's the bento for Thursday. Will try to catch up on last week's bento soonest possible.

Have a great week ahead, all !!

  • I usually deshucked the corn the night before and microwave heat it the next morning. less than 2 mins, much faster than steaming.. sorry I kapo here.

  • Rachel's mom, you can never think that you are "kapoh-ing" dearie, your advice is very much appreciated. Never thought of microwaving it, for some reason. 2 min is speedy. thanks for letting me know. Do you cover it with a paper towel?

    Hi Sharon, yea, I love these too !! They are so much more vibrant than those Hello Kitty ones.

    Sting, Ya lor. but the poor dear still finish the corn. I guess she is too young to notice any difference. I will be taking Rachel's mom's advice and stay in steaming it in the morning next time. It's my first time leaving it overnight.

  • Thanks for not finding me kapo : )

    I don't cover it. Just place a small cup of water next to it when microwaving.

  • Hi, you certainly are a very innovative lady where food is concerned. And all your bentos are superb, outstanding.
    To be honest I never knew much about bentos till coming across your blog.
    Now I know, ha ha.
    You keep well and happy cooking, Lee.

  • I think having a hobby like this is rather expensive, don't you think so? We got to get the lunch box, the food picks, the dividers, the molds, the cups and the list can go on. Sometimes I worry that my children would be bored of the same box and divider and I tend to tell myself to get more. Sigh!!!

    Love this bento of yours. Simple but nice and I think my children would love everything in it.

  • So thoughtful of you to check her school meal plan before planning bento for the week.
