Bento 198

There was no need for any cooking this morning. It took me less than 5 minutes to put this together. #2's favorite Kiwi and some Malaysian tea-time favorite 'kuih dadar'.

I made a fresh batch of Ratatouille yesterday alongside cooking dinner and the whole pot went into the fridge.

I was grocery shopping yesterday with #3 and we found "Hainan bread" the ones they serve at coffee shops. It's being sold at Jusco now. #3 exclaimed loudly "Mummy, that's the bread I used to eat when I was younger right?" Yeah! I used to buy them at the wet market and so I bought a large loaf of it to reminiscence old times.....

The snack bento below was prepared for #1 yesterday for college. Her classes were in the afternoon and in a good mood and said yes to a snack bento. It's a promising beginning.

Some skinned grapes, home made chocolate chip cookies and 'kuih lapis'.

Do u think we spoil our kids by skinning the skins of grapes for them? Actually I find it kind-na therapeutic to peel the skins, funny aren't i?

javapot: First, we are mothers - no need for any explanation or excuses! LOL!

I thought those grapes were peeled!!

OMG - am I a failure as a mother (for not peeling grapes or other fruit for the 13 yo boy) or am I a success making sure he gets fiber in his diet??

Bento Pet said...

eilismaura: Mums try to do their best for their kids - how can they be deemed as 'failures'?

javapot finds skinning grapes a therapeutic process, I skinned mine because the skin had a bitter taste to it, you didn't for more fibre - I think we all did well!

3 cheers for mums!

LOL I had the same "People skin grapes?? Oh my goodness." reaction :)

Tarcoulis said...

Oh no! My four year old daughters refuse to eat grapes with skin. Please don't tell me I'll be peeling grapes until they're in college.

Bento Pet said...

Tarcoulis: Hahaha! You've already set a precedent, there's no turning back unless you teach her to peel the grapes herself.

*Mummy power*

Lynn: Mothers are a 'weird' lot aren't they? LOL!
