BENTO #134

Just a sandwich for #2 before another run. We're watching "Maid in Manhattan" right now munching the delicious sandwiches. I know it's a very old show, but the DVD has been lying around for a long while crying out 'Watch ME, watch ME!' and when #2 finally declared that she was watching "Maid in Manhattan", I made time to watch too!

Watching it taught me a few things. When "Marisa" was caught impersonating who she wasn't and was asked to leave her employment, her supervisor also put in his resignation and had these last words to share with her:

"Sometimes we're forced in directions that we ought to have found for ourselves.
To serve people takes dignity and intelligence. But remember they're only people with money. Although we serve them, we are not their servants.

What we do, does not define who we are.
What defines us is how well we rise after falling".

I love the movie and will probably find time to watch it again. It's inspiring!

Anyway, back to our sandwiches. I'm using my new sandwich box and I simply adore it!
I made a triple layer turkey ham, zuchinni, red and green coral vegetables on buttered white and wholemeal bread!!! As usual, I will also add a splatter of wholegrain mustard for extra 'zing'!

Added two blocks of cheese to munch on.

Doesn't the bread get dry?

I haven't had the chance to use the sandwich box yet. So how was it? The bread shouldn't get dry since you put the box in a bento bag, right? Were there crumbs in the bag though? I'm more concerned with the 6-yr old getting crumbs everywhere.

jomamma: #2 ate it at home for tea so the bread didn't have a chance to get dry. Like what 3lilangels said, it could be packed into a bento bag or alternatively packed with a furoshiki!

3lilangels: About the crumbs part, U put the cover under the box to catch them.

Quite a creative invention!!I think the kids would have a great time dismantling it!
