Bento #88

Ashley's sorethroat and flu graduated to fever over the next few days, so I let her stay back at home the whole week. She hadn't gone to school the whole of last week.

My own sorethroat has graduated to flu and fever as well. It was annoying having to deal with datelines with a sniffling runny nose and dizzy head, so, fortunately, by the 3rd day, I got better.

If there's one thing I dislike, it's getting sick. Nothing gets done smoothly when one is sick, does it? It can really tamper with all those "to-do" list that you have to complete by so and so date.

So, since Ashley is off school, hubby or I get a bento instead. This is last week's bento. Will try to load up here as many as I can.

Tuesday's bento

This is husband's breakfast bento. He appreciates a breakfast bento but would not have lunch in the office. He much prefers going for lunch with his lunch cronies around his workplace or his business associates.


Husband's bento is a thick cut ham sandwich. I layered the ham with slices of red peppers and yellow peppers, zucchini and carrots. Because hubby doesn't like chewing on vegetables, I usually take advantage of a sandwich bento by slotting in as much veges as I can.


Added some green grapes and purple grapes. Grapes are staples in my fridge cos they make such handy bento gap fillers and they also make speedy bento packing cos you save time on the peeling, slicing or cutting.

I thought that little apple wouldn't taste so good cos of the skin, it's like not a pretty colour? But suprisingly, those small apples can be so sweet.

Okay, not to upload Wed's bento pics in photobucket and see if I can post that up today too.

Happy Bentou-ing , guys !

  • My husband would be so touched if i prepared his lunch everyday! But i didn't! he!

  • Hmmm... My hubby doesn't want a lunch bento too. Maybe should follow you and pack a breakfast bento instead. He's also not a vege eater. And I've given up trying to convert him. Just the kids is enough headache... haha...

    Glad you are better. Good timing - at least you're sick when the maid is around and hopefully behaving well. Take care!

  • have been very busy lately. only got to catchup with your blogs. Wow, your previous post really proved that you landed up with a maid from Hell. you really have so much tolerance. i might not have had the patience with her and if seeing what she did with poor Ashley, i might have turned violent and hit her. She is so evil.. to want to hurt an innocent little child like that without remorse. hope you and Ashley are recovering from the bug soon. take care!

  • Hey Ms__2be, healthy only if there's loads of vege in there.haha.

    leeyen, my hubby appreciates it too. It's nice to do something for hubby every once in a while , for all he has done for us.

    3lilangels, yes, pack a breakfast bento for your hubby. Nothing beats a homecook meal without msg, stuffed with fruits. As for having the maid, I must admit it is rather refreshing to have someone do the dishes instead of me.haha.

    Nancy !!!! how have you been !!!! The maid is the same one you saw months ago in my car, when MIL said to send her back and she refuse to go, asking for another chance. So we send her back to MIL instead.

    Thanks, Annie Q, so happy to be feeling better and alert.haha. And yay to no more soiled bedsheets.

    Hey Joyce, how' your bento-ing coming along? Will visit you once my streamyx is up. Haven't been blog hopping for awhile becasue of this.
