Kindergarten bento – Overslept (17/Oct/17)

I overslept this morning. In such a panicky morning, frozen chicken soboro, sautéed minced chicken, comes in handy.

While Soboro is being defrosted (just in room temperature), quickly make scrambled egg and boil green beans. Once the beans are boiled thinly slice them, place them along with Soboro and egg carefully on top of freshly cooked rice. Voila, it’s done!

Steamed mashed pumpkin also came from my dear freezer.

Menu: Chicken Soboro bento, Steamed mashed pumpkin, Cucumber sticks, Cherry tomato

Tangerine Mikan for dessert

Kindergarten bento – Soboro bento (5/Oct/17)

I forgot to take the photo of my daughter’s bento at the kitchen this morning. Just for the sake of continuing to upload this to this site everyday, I got the bento out of my daughter’s school backpack, and took this photo at the entrance hall while my husband was being grumpy to be in a rush to bring her to school on his way to work.

Gomennasai.


Menu: Soboro tricolour bento, Steamed broccoli, Steamed carrot and daikon with dash of sea salt & extra virgin olive oil 

Mikan for dessert 

Kindergarten bento – Kyoho grapes (6/Sep/17)

After a long, hot & humid summer, there is finally a sense of autumn in the air. The temperature at night time has cooled down, which makes us sleep better and hence gives us more appetite.

As dessert, I packed one of the seasonal fruits in our daughter’s bento – Kyoho grapes.  The flesh is very juicy and sweet, but the skin is quite thick and bitter. I usually peal it off before eating, but left it on this morning partly because I am always in a rush in the morning, and that she can now do it on her own, but mostly because of this beautiful colour of elegant dark purple that I wanted my daughter to see and remember as part of our autumnal delicacy.

Menu: Chicken soboro & scrambled egg on rice, Stir-fried potato & spinach, Boiled green beans, Cherry tomato

Kyoho grapes for dessert

Kindergarten bento – Graduation (9/Mar/17)

Menu: Salmon flakes & scrambled egg on rice, Hijiki, Boiled green beans & broad beans

Strawberries & apple mousse for dessert


This is the bento from yesterday. Today no bento is required at my daughter’s kindergarten, because they are celebrating the graduation of the oldest kids with the onigiri & soup lunch to be prepared by the younger kids. How lovely is that!

(In Japan, the school year starts in April and ends in March. March is the month of graduation, so everyone is in the celebration mode)

Kindergarten bento – Sunshine bento (23/Feb/17)

After packing rather dull shades of food in the bento box, I was awakened by the lively yellow colour of scrambled egg. It was as if the sun started shining brightly through the gloomy overcast sky.

Menu: Hijiki mixed in rice with scrambled egg on top, Spinach goma-ae, Steamed sweet potato & cabbage

Apple mousse & kiwi for dessert
