Bento 194

Today's bento was packed at mid day because #2 and I went to see the doctors in the morning.

We're down with sore throats, flu and cough. #3 had it, but recovered, looks like #1 is also experiencing some tightness in the throat. Everyone in the house is having signs of a cough or something now!

I made a pledge to add a non plastic bento box before my 200th post and so here it is. It's a huge 700 ml box.

#2 requested for more fruits and ideally, this metal box packed in enough fruits. It was a good size for lots of fruits!

In it was persimmons and kiwi fruits - there was more than one in each silicon cup.

I finally found a box huge enough to use these humongous silicon cups which has been in my bento drawers since I opened them from their package. One contains alfalfa and some thinned down sesame seed dressing (added some plain yogurt). The other contained couscous and my freezer stash of Ratatouille.

The same things packed in a 480 ml box.

The Ratatouille tastes just as good if not better today! A couple of days back, #2's friends came over for group study and since all of them were abstaining from meat for Lent, I served them Ratatouille. Surprisingly enough they enjoyed it very much and one of the boys said that he was going to suggest to his mum to make it since it's meatless. Yummilicious!

Congratulations on fulfilling your pledge!

I have been fingering this particular metal tin at the shops but thought maybe I have one too many bento box alredi!! Gonna rethink that idea!

We are STILL gonna visit 100yen shops and Daiso.... (IOI on 28/03/09?) right......?

Wow, I got the virus too, very terrible sore throat and cold. I got it last thu, then little girl started fever on fri evening, turned to high fever non-stop for sat & sun, hubby & me brought her to Assunta both days! Pity her, had to take lots of medicines. At last, the fever was gone last nite, but make her rest at home today, thus no bento. Phew! What a weekend!

Hope everyones feeling better soon. I'm coming down with something too, but i'm sure it's just another sinus infection.

Ratatouille is a good choice, surprisingly yummy dish :)

We all had the same symptoms too... all of us were on antibiotics last week and two courses of medicines. Fortunately no fever, and fortunately school hols.

Hope you are feeling better.

Emily: Thanks! I remembered I had a metal box which I bought ages ago before I even began to bento!

Have you picked up anything yet? I'm laying low for now - don't tempt me!

Bento Pet said...

kel: Poor baby! Must have been very tiring for you too.

Bento Pet said...

Lynn: Everyone is recovering, thanks! My second daughter also has sinus and many times she's threatened to 'cut off' her nose. Poor thing.

3lilangels: Feeling much better but still on antibiotics.
