Puto Cheese and Strawberry Yoghurt

2015 Bento Week: September 13 – 17

This was quite a challenging week, I was not feeling quite myself – no energy to get up early in the morning and do chores the rest of the day. I’m just happy we survived yet another week, we have food on the table and healthy. Sunday We have a messy looking turkey ham and cheese rolls, apple slices, steamed sweet corn and yakult. Monday Baked chicken katsu the night before for today’s bento. Kuya V went to school with a chicken katsu onigirazu, sugar cookies, apples and watermelon balls. LittleMiss had chicken katsu strips, sugar cookies and watermelon balls. I added a homemade kimchi sidedish for Daddy’s pack lunch. Tuesday Made use of left over salmon from last nights dinner and made fried rice.  LittleMiss asked that I pack her some Hello Kitty bread and cheese and as always a yoghurt milk. We use a Goodbyn lunchbox here. Kuya V’s lunch was packed in a Thermos Funtainer which was filled with Salmon fried rice and meatballs with Bolognese sauce. A banana and nutella bread …

2015 Bento Week: September 6 – 10

Second week of school and we are getting into the groove. I should really plan a week worth of packed lunch for the bunch but still procrastinating in doing one, hopefully before the month ends. Here’s our bento baon for the week. Sunday We had fish tempura for dinner and the LittleOne’s loved it, they requested that I pack it for their baon this week. My one concern is how to keep tempura crispy by lunch time, recipe and tips on how to keep it a bit crispy, here. Inside our goodbyn we have fish tempura + ketchup, sweet corn, mandarin oranges.   Monday Kuya V shared over our tea time that most of his friends only pack 1 food in school while he has lot’s of choices and thanked me for giving him a good baon. I told him that his bento today will remind him to always eat his school food or else Mama’s mood will be grumpy. We packed sweet ham, rice, boiled egg and waffles inside our smash box containers bought …

2015 Bento Week: August 31 – September 3

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.

September Bentos

We are on the last week of September. I can finally say that we are all getting back to our routine after two long months of vacation back home. Honestly, mornings have been difficult this start of school month. I overslept and so did the boys, who needs to be out of the house by 6:30 am. I was grumpy most mornings – I had to prepare breakfast, school lunch and hush a LittleMiss who needs nanan because our loud voices woke her up. Instead of sharing a weekly round-up, here’s our September bentos – well those that I’ve managed to snap photos of.   LittleMan V now plans his school lunch with me. I suggested that since he’s turning 7 years old maybe he can start eating fresh/steamed vegetables, he agreed but requested that he get to choose which veggie.

First week with PlanetBox Rover

I’ve been searching for ways to pack healthy lunch for V since he started Junior 1 – a filling lunch since school start at 7:10 am and ends at 1:40 pm, I was constantly worried that he might get hungry. Since then I’ve been searching (obsessing) for lunchboxes. We currently own Sahara Tiger Lunchbox, Lock and Lock, GoodByn box and latest addition a PlanetBox.   The Planetbox Rover complete set sells for $59.95 and consists of: – main lunchbox that has 5 compartments – little dipper container – big dipper container – carrying bag – magnets – ice pack (they ran a promotion and got it for free) As soon as LittleMan V saw the PlanetBox Rover he got excited and requested that I pack his lunch in it the next day. I managed to pack 3 school lunch using the rover this week. Here they are: Recipes for lunch food below will be available in the coming weeks.
