Again, #2 has asked to skip her break time bento @ school and have one after school. "I'll come back to eat my bento" she says!
I made something more substantial because she would have 'starved' herself over break time.
In the left box is some left over "Sake no Nanbantsuke" (marinated salmon) from last night's dinner and some blanched cauliflowers. The green container contains the vinegared sauce from the "Sake no Nanbantsuke". #2 doesn't like liquids in her Bento because sometimes it spills out onto her school bag and I've learnt to keep her food quite dry.
In the right box there are skewered water chestnuts again. She loved this yesterday and asked for more of it because it's so surprisingly sweet! Initially I tried using the 'cutesy' skewers from Daiso but the water chestnuts split into half because it was too thick. Finally I found these 'dolphin' ones with really fine skewers and it managed to go through very nicely.
Finally, more proteins! Skewered more crabsticks and some nori meat patties.
I ate the balance of the marinated Salmon. Mmmmm...really yummy!
Smilebox recipe will be uploaded soon (I hope!). Been so busy!
