Piano recitals back to back (last night with Ah Lo and tonight with Dai Bee). In the morning, I made the boys turkey and cheese sandwich (Grand Piano) and PBJ sandwich (piano keys) for breakfast. Just felt like making them when I got up this morning since it’s been awhile. Oh I miss playing with food!IMG_7120Untitled-3

Also came in the mail today was the children’s magazine that published one of Ah Lo’s poems. Coincidentally the poem they chose to publish is about the piano which goes perfectly with our music theme this weekend.

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a bento. This one is so simple, and you can tell I’m a bit rusty! After all, it’s the food that counts!

My first bento for the year, for both the Chinese New Year and the Western Calendar Year. This is of course, a celebratory bento for the CNY.

This is one of the very few bento lunches where I didn’t plan for but turned out nicely. The lunch is for the Girl, which I already packed last night. This morning when I got up, I opened the refrigerator and saw the broccoli and cherry tomatoes, so I whipped up this:

Using the Vietnamese grilled pork sausage or grilled meatball, a popular Vietnamese food item (nem nuong) to wrap the spring rolls for the girl’s lunch today. Just did the nori cut-outs the night before, and voila, lunch is ready for Halloween!

Nothing scary today, just Charlie Brown and his cart of pumpkins for lunch…

This 3-day weekend flew by so quickly I vaguely remembered what happened the last 3 days. Today, we’re back to the grind. Simple bento lunch for the girl with leftover shrimp and pork ribs…IMG_9738
