My Kids Bento




Yours truly have been preparing bentos to Wakaba and Haruka almost everyday since last week coz the School- Lunch Center serving at their school was being affected during the 3-11 Earthquake in Japan but this week, milk, a piece of bread and something extra are served as school lunch. According to our PTA meeting, gakko kyushoku will resume next week.


Wakaba's problem with ' gakko kyushoku ' ( school lunch ) is that the serving is too small for her (she's a big eater kasi ) and she's shy to ask for an ' okawari ' ( asking for refill of food or another bowl of rice lol ). I remember what she told me when she came home from school and talked about her first school lunch~ Wakaba told me that she was shocked about the size of the hamburger steak at school, she said the size was far different of what's she was eating at home lol! Well, the serving at school ain't bad it's just that my girl wants a larger size of her favorite meal lol! School lunches serves healthy menus~ it has main dish, side dish and milk.


Well anyway, here's what I prepared for my girls bento~ everyday is a twist, easy and healthy that they love ^_^


Rice seasoned with furikake, fried chicken, potato salad, tomato, cheese, hijiki nimono (simmered thin seaweed ) and strawberries
Chicken teriyaki, chikuwa ( fish cake ), kanikama ( crab stick ), cucumber stick salad, tomato, takuan ( japanese picked daikon ) and takikomi gohan ( japanese rice dish seasoned with soysauce with mushrooms ) topped with nori.
Wakaba and Haruka's Bento for school
Kanikama Maki ( crab stick sushi roll ), kinpira renkon ( braised lotus root ), flowery ham and egg, tomato and apples
Wakaba and Haruka's Bento for school
Tamago yaki ( japanese omelet rolled with nori ), rolled bacon with asparagus, rice ball, tomatoes and grapes

That's what I like with Japanese food and the Japanese. They make eating a ritual with artistic presentations. Eating becomes a truly gastronomic experience. I am so glad that you are living a normal life again after the ordeal and you have move on beautifully. I am still praying for your family and the whole of Japan. It is now the turn of the US to experience great catastrophes from tornadoes where two Pinays have already died. God bless their souls. Thanks for the enjoyable post. God bless you all always.

Ang sarap! I'm sure your kids are excited to eat their lunch everyday. I love the toothpicks too!

Gene said...

Wow, those looks so yummy! I always make bento for hubby but not something so intricate(?) as this. It's always rice, fried food and a simple side dish.

Any suggestions on how we can make a bento that is good as this?

Rossel said...
