I used a new chicken recipe today on the kiddos: skinless boneless thighs oven roasted in olive oil and herbes de provence. But you can use whatever herbs you happen to like: rosemary or oregano, for example. I roasted covered for awhile, then removed the cover to brown. And since I had the herby olive oil, I decided to toss some potatoes and roast those too. I like them crispy and a little burnt, but I didn't pack those. The rest of TinySprite's LunchBot Quad contains: home pickled cucumbers, tomato, carrot, grapes and strawberry. Super loving the way my girl is growing into the Quad these days ^_^
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 ^-^!
