BENTO #139

I fried some scallops, "la la" shellfish and prawns with mushrooms and tomatoes for today's Bento box. To accompany all that was the final left over sprouts. I had made some Campbell soup for her to take in a flask but she declined it because she said that there was no time to eat due to the 'puasa' period, so she had it for breakfast. All classes are shortened and the teachers are trying to keep time. I suspect that she's using her recess time to stay in class to finish up homework!

There was takuan, an orange and a piece of Nougat for treat. #2 and I are big fans of Nougat - the hard ones! We don't mind the soft type but the hard ones are the ones we always look for. In one sitting, we can finish a whole box.

I know, I know, it's bad for the teeth and the diet! These temptations are hard to resist!

Would you mind sharing with me, if its ok to cut up fruits like that and just leave it in the bento box for half a day? I totally new to bentoing!

allthingspurple: LOL! Surprisingly the pack of seafood I bought at Jusco was a dollar fifty cheaper that the pack of fish ball I had intended to buy. So I thought it'd be a good change in the menu and more so since it was cheaper!

family first: There are many factors to consider here in terms of contamination. All measures must be taken to avoid introducing contamination to packed food. It is best to pack non-cut fruits but sometimes for easy handling, cut fruits are more practical. One thing you could do is to freeze a bottle of orange or apple juice and pack together with the bento to keep cool the bento to avoid any breeding of bacteria. Also keep in mind that you could purchase anti-bacterial sheets for your bento. Check this link:
