But of course the baby had to wake an hour earlier than his usual rising time today and dozed off while I was preparing the bentos! Urgghh! So when the bentos were ready, he was so fast asleep that I couldn't wake him up. So plans were changed and we had our bentos at home instead. Duh! By the time the boys ate, my 4yo looked way too sleepy to head out, so I have to shelve the sand play till the evening after he wakes from nap. Well, at least we ate rather healthily with our bento lunches.
For the 2yo: Rice ball made from red rice, steamed Japanese sweet potato decorated with a piece of nori seaweed, a quail egg, half a fish cake stuffed with carrot flower, broccoli and stir fried chicken with courgette and carrot.
For the 4yo: Same food as above, just bigger quantity and with 2 additional baby corns and a portion of seedless grapes.
For me: Almost similar food as the boys but no quail egg, and I added steamed courgette, red pepper strips and carrots with some cherry tomatoes and grapes.
Urgghh.. the photos of the bentos just aren't doing justice to the colours in the boxes. Oh well...not much I can do till I get the camera fixed. Sigh!
