here. The kids invariably like to eat the wontons like finger food though, so I put some in my boy's bento just like this. His teacher mentioned how good they looked at lunchtime, which I think means I should make a bunch more for him to share next time :)
I added a watercress salad tossed with fresh chopped strawberries and mandarins, sprinkled with chopped walnuts. I would have added goat or feta cheese too, but I didn't have any. I squeezed some juice into the salad too... and guess what? He said he liked it! Yay! I wasn't sure how the watercress would go over. When I was a kid it took awhile for me to get used to the taste. It's also good in soup. Some baby star-cut carrots got placed in the corner, and I managed to slip some plum slices in as well. These are raspberry jewel plums, which are teardrop shaped and supersweet and juicy. They are a lovely rosy magenta color, so pretty. I was excited to see them in my local grocery this week, for a nice addition to the fruit section. Just wait till the full summer crop!
