Bento 209 Lettuce Princess Bento

This week is a very tiring week.  Son injured his knee and was on cast and away from school.  Whenever any of my children on MC at home, I will be super busy.  Didn’t realised how exhausted I was until last night.  Plus I normally naps in the morning, with son at home, I didn’t nap at all!

Well, good that today is the last day of school! So last school bento for ther term/semester.  Well, I just may do some home bento for myself 🙂

Bento today is a very happy Lettuce Princess who is having school holiday 🙂  Food was Chinese Char Siew Bao

Bento 197 Woof Woof Bento

We are considering adopting a Maltese.   So inspiration came from that.  I love Maltese, but I’m still worried and concern if I will have the time and energy to handle the dog.  Well, will see if the dog be available by next Saturday when it will be my only available time to go view.  If it’s mine, he/she will be available 🙂

Hee hee, bao didn’t quite look like a Maltese. 😛 Daughter said so. Well, I know 😛

Bento 173 Little Lamb Bento

Everything Cold Bento

Son has not been having appetite recently, growth spurt slowing down? Was cracking my brain on what I can pack for him.  And ‘ding!’ came the idea!  He loves Chawanmushi (Japanese steam egg), so (Tips:) I used the silicon cups as containers, and made Chawanmushi using these silicon cups.  Chilled overnight, and we have cold Chawanmushi 😀  Kind of like egg jelly?  😀  However, I’m still nervous about Daiso’s silicon cups.  Will go shop for other silicon cups for future purpose.

I put a small ice pack under the silicon cup with egg, hopefully can keep the egg cold for as long as possible.

I’m actually very happy with this idea, can foresee that I be doing the cold Chawanmushi quite a lot, especially since the hot season is approaching.
