The Anti-Climatic Return!



















Oh wow, it's been over a month since I've posted here. Although I've been making bento lunches for the Little Goose in the past month, they have not been as fancy or pretty and so I have not been posting any pictures. Also, I've been super busy with school and work so I haven't had much time to devote to just lunch, it is a lower priority than spending time with my kids and getting some sleep after all. Anyhoo...unless I have some time, the lunches will probably be a bit simpler than they have in the past. For example, this one here. We have:

-One mini-orange blossom with a Reese' Pieces center
-Stewed carrots over rice
-Vietnamese braised beef ribs
-More rice (but loosely star shaped...for that extra oooh, obviously =)

PS I did get a brand spanking new to me 19th century antique cypress wood and lacquer bento box that I'm hoping to use sometime soon. It's for an adult's lunch which I've never really done before, but I'm sure I'll come up with something. When I do, I'll definitely post it here.

For today's pic, here's the Sweet Pea enjoying a nice cool shot of soy milk. No, it was not my idea (it was my mom's I swear!). But we've got a large shot glass collection. We might as well use it for something and they make the perfect toddler sized glass...if only they weren't breakable.

WOW. Ashley would have a smile as big as Sweet Pea's if I made bento boxes like that!

I surfed over from MN's blog. I love the bentos. I have a Japanese book with tons of pictures and how to's. A-chan isn't going to start school anytime soon, but when I can get more time and energy (I have a 7 month old that still doesn't sleep great), I want to make cute bento for A-chan at home. Do you know where's a good place to get cute but cheap cookie cutters?

I also noticed your son's bib. Are you or your DH IU alum? Or from a friend? Just curious because I went to IU Bloomington.
