Both kids get leftover corned beef and cabbage in their bento today. Great; no need to think too much! I also added potatoes, onion and carrots into the pot toward the end of cooking, so there's lots of goodies in the mix. MisterMan gets a section of grapes, steamed Okinawan sweet purple potato, broccoli and a carrot (because I always have to put a flower carrot in there. Don't know why). The last section has yogurt topped with raspberries, blueberries and wheat germ. If you put enough berries on top, they'll actually serve to keep the yogurt in place. It's a practical trick.
TinySprite gets the same corned beef and cabbage in the bottom tier of her cute pink panda box, and in the top she has a carrot and cara cara orange bear face, with blueberries raspberry face. Aw! Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

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 ^-^!
