Bentolicious #130
My kids started their mid-test for the first semester yesterday. I didn't prepare any lunch bento for them as the school will dismiss at 12PM during the mid-test week. So the kids will have their lunch at home. This morning I only prepared snack bento for the 15 minutes break between the 2 tests. School will also provide snacks for the students but my daughter asked me yesterday to bring her own snack to school. My son didn't want to bring snack bento. He said that today's school snack was pizza and he wanted that :p  As much as I love to make bento, I never pushed my kids to bring bento if they don't want to. School catering also provides very healthy and balanced foods. And lately I let my son to have the school catering because they provide a lot of Indonesian foods that I don't normally cook at home so often. So I think it will be a good experience for my son to explore the taste from different kinds of foods. 
Inside the box : Pandan sandwich bread & regular white sandwich bread with pandan kaya jam, nectarine, orange, and mango.
