We like crispy crunchy food. My picky eaters tend to eat vegetables it’s cooked tempura style. Kuya V has been requesting to have tempura packed in his bento, but I always have the issue of keeping them crispy by the time he gets to school. I read somewhere that the secret to make tempura crispy for a long time is to drain the oil as much as you can and pack it the container only when it’s in room temperature. Fried and drained them in a colander then to a paper towel. Kuya V came home happy to report that the tempura was still a little bit crispy on some side.
First week of school. Yay! Goodbye summer. Boo! It was a tough first week of school for this Mama, my mind and body was not ready for the super early wake-up alarm. Boohoo! Kuya V is definitely excited to see his school friends and to learn a new language – French. We survived the first school week and back to sharing our weekly baon / bento. I post our daily bento on our instagram account, make sure you follow us. Monday Kuya V requested to bring pack rice in his thermos container because he wanted to have warm food for school. Today’s baon consists of steamed jasmine rice, vegetable meatballs, teriyaki sauce, apples and chocolate chip cookies. Lunchbox used goodbyn and thermos.
