Another garden bento for MisterMan inspired by the kids' backyard play: these 2 frogs have moved into the fold of my favorite lounge chair, so now we don't lounge -- we only peer at them and see how they are doing, sometimes spray them with mist to cool them down from the summer heat.
The two cucumber frogs are resting on some red wine vinegar chicken, with roasted asparagus and garlic enoki mushrooms. Also, peapods, sweet potato and Okinawan purple potato, purple carrot skewer, and rice underneath. Fruit side has lychee, pluot, strawberries, blackberries and champagne grapes.
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 13yo (8th grader) son & my 10yo (4th grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
