the no notice bento


Hmmm well, it's kind of healthy....

steamed pumpkin, mysterious processed squid things, cheese, omelette slices, grapes, frozen jellies, apple cubes and cucumber sticks with mayonnaise. At the back are two seaweed wrapped rice balls with pickled plums. She wanted to use K's bento box and as he's away I said why not. But it's huge! And if you don't fill the bento pretty well everything rattles around in there and turns into a right mess before lunch.

The mystery squid things are definitely not something I usually feed the girls in such quantities as I'm pretty iffy on processed meat but it was protein in a pinch and beggars can't be choosers, huh?

The verdict?

"Everyone said my bento was HUGE! It was bigger than the TEACHERS! It was yummy! But I got so full I had to leave a cucumber stick. Sorry mummy."

No apologies necessary and I'm impressed that's all she left!

Great job with what was available! Is mini tomato season over in Nagano? We have many shapes and colors, really great for filling up the box without filling up the tummy. I'm glad we can grow them into November.

I think for having zero notice and dealing with a typhoon as well. I think your obento came out fantastic and it definitely looked healthy!

And by the way, if it were me, I wouldn't have run to the store that night either. : )
