Kindergarten bento – Niku-don (14/Sep/17)

Niku-don for bento, prepared according to my mum’s recipe. It’s one of my favorite dishes from my dear mother, and I believe so as my daughter’s. In the morning I packed the bento with care and love, picturing my daughter’s big smile as she opens the lid at school lunch time…

And of course I get pulled back to reality from such dream-like moment, as my daughter drops her backpack with the bento in it on our entrance floor (stone) while she clumsily buttons up her uniform jacket… And again on the way to our bike downstairs as she stumbles on a small stone in the bike shed… Just to top it off, she drops her backpack one more time on the concrete ground while she climbs up onto her bike seat, reaching out to me to put it into the front basket…

Probably her face wasn’t smiling when she opened the bento today at school, but at least it looked like this before the backpack debacle.

Menu: Mum’s nikudon, Steamed pumpkin, Boiled green beans, Cherry tomato

Japanese Nashi pear for dessert
