Bentolicious #170
Happy Valentine's Day all!
I packed this bento as the last Valentine theme bento. I made the little birds flying around. Only used small cutters to make this bento and pretty quick to prepare. Inside the box :rice, strawberries, tamagoyaki, garlic prawn & carrot-cucumber salad (sauce on separated box).
Project cookies pops has been failed. It was my idea to make that for kids' classmates but then my kids said it was too big to decorate. And they wanted to make heart shaped cookies instead. So we started baking the cookies on Saturday and kids decorated the cookies on Sunday. I took some of kids' pictures in the kitchen with my mobile phone before they 'banned' me from the kitchen. Funny though because my kitchen was separated with the big glass door so I could still see what they were doing with the cookies LOL :D I posted the pictures on my twitter (you can follow me here). They had a lot of fun decorating the cookies for 3 hours. They decorated 150 cookies by themselves. So each of them brought 75 cookies to share with their classmates, teachers, and they said they wanted to give it to security and cleaning service staffs too at the school. Each one of the cookies had a different design on the top with the icings that I made. Didn't know how they could do that, they just kept floating the cookies with the icings. They had a lot of fun and I was happy to see their exciting face holding a box full of their homemade cookies. We always teach the kids to share and to care. This is just a simple thing that they successfully did. I'm very proud of them.


I'm not surprised at how sweet and generous your kids have become! Just like their mom :)
