Besides the pasta, MisterMan has yellow peppers and enoki stir-fried with olive oil, garlic and shoyu. Purple carrot skewer, cukes, peapods, sweet potato flowers, tomato and Spanish olive salad with feta, and fruit section of strawberries, kiwi, red grapes and honeydew nectarines -- these smell fantastic, but sadly, they don't taste as sweet as the black plums or pluots, my all-time favorites.
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 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl 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 ^-^!
