TinySprite and I stayed home again. She got over the last cold, but now she has a lingering cough. Plus she was so tired she actually took two naps today. I'm guessing the busy weekend left her worn out and her body needs to make up some sleep recovery time. So this bento is small but full of substantial, filling foods. She got a (store-bought, leftover from the weekend's festivities) potsticker, some fresh roasted sweet potatoes, edamame, carrots sticks, and chopped "green oranges", cherry and blueberries. Not really sure what a green orange is, but that's how it was labeled at my Asian grocery. It was indeed green-skinned, but it was very sweet and ripe. We had the day off yesterday, so this weekend is stretching out a little bit longer for us. Wednesday tomorrow already. Yay!
Added to What's For Lunch. Take a look!
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 ^-^!
