Yesterday was an extremely busy but fruitful day for me. I took a day off from work to go to my boy’s birthday party at his school, followed by running some errands that I had been postponing due to my full time job.
I’ll share with you my boy’s birthday party details later. In their school, birthdays are celebrated on Fridays only so daily school schedules are not interrupted. Every Friday is the school’s Super Fun day, where kids wear their casual school T-shirts instead of uniforms, and there are a lot of fun activities planned for them.
I made my boy this chick bento yesterday. I cut the little chick from a pan-fried luncheon meat with the chicken shape cookie cutter. I used the red colour heart shape food pick for the beak, a small heart shape cheese for the wing, and seaweed for the rest of the details.
I let the little chick sit on the walnut bun surrounded by green lettuce. He looks like he is chilling out in his cozy nest, doesn’t he?
Besides the walnut bun and the luncheon meat chic, I included some prunes, cherries, boiled carrots and two skewers of endamame.
Thanks to creative bento-ing, my elder boy starts to eat boiled carrots. I was pleasantly surprised that he came home with one carrot, and it was simply because he did not have enough time to clean up the food during his morning break time.
