Okay, time to start cooking again. Today I packed MisterMan some shoyu chicken, along with roasted halved Brussels sprouts and kabocha pieces (I tossed those veggies in the shoyu sauce too). I'm pretty pleased with how I managed to get all the cut segments of exactly one half of a cara cara orange to fit perfectly into one section, and topped them with halved grapes to echo the spots on the radish "shroom" in the center. There was also just enough room to squeeze in a luscious red strawberry to round out this bento. This round box makes bento-packing almost effortless, which is why I love it so much. Everything is so ordinary and quick to prepare, but it still manages to look bright and appealing with minimal arrangement. I think my boy will like this one!

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 9yo (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 ^-^!
