Back to the Monday grind! And since we just got back from out of town (again), there isn't anything in the fridge. What to do? Quick cook some rice, look around in the freezer, and here's what I came up with. Today's bento is brown rice sushi with (freezer stash) artificial crab stick, spinach tamagoyaki, some (freezer stash) edamame, a couple of carrots and a lone sliced strawberry. A few nori faces to smile back at my preschooler, and we're done here. Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
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 ^-^!
