Hello there, mommies! How was your weekend? Hope you had a blast 'cos mine was great. We went to the Greenfield District's weekend market and had an awesome afternoon there, watching the kids running, playing, and blowing bubbles, while hubby and I were having boiled peanuts, rice cakes, and mango juice for snack. Well, it's Monday again so I'm back to the normal routine of cooking for the family, taking care of the kids, breastfeeding and stuff, and of course, preparing bento for my gradeschooler. Oh, this bento which I am about to share to you right now is the same bento you see in my current blog header.
What I prepared: star-shaped rice, 2 small sausages (cut into halves) and tomato slices on matryoshka food picks, and fried dumpling.
She has a couple of choices for dessert, some jelly babies (a kind of imported candy) and mango balls.
Fried dumplings has egg and sausage is made of chicken meat. I put them in my elder daughter's bento even she's allergic to them, hoping she'll develop immunity by giving her egg and chicken every once in a while. Honestly speaking, she is not a big fan of Chinese food but she likes my homecooked fried dumplings a lot. One of the main ingredients of this dumpling is Chinese cabbage. It has green onions, carrots, ginger, garlic, and white onion, too. I'm happy if she's able to finish a minimum of four dumplings in a meal, you know, the picky-eater that she is. As for this bento, I inserted the leftover dumpling from her lunch.
