Bentolicious #175
Didn't have any mood to prepare bento from yesterday but finally managed to make it this morning. I think I got way too tired over the weekend which made my week started so slow and uninspiring. Hope tonight I can pull myself together again and find some ideas to make bento for this week. I did a simple and quick cooking for today's bento. Inside the box : yellow bird on the top of the rice, cucumber flowers, sauteed chicken minced meat with tofu & potato, stir fry chayote, half hard boiled egg, and strawberries. Salt and pepper were put inside the small yellow food cup.
I baked some buttermilk cookies on Sunday night to join the fun with other tweeps this month for #twitterfoodparty #twittercookieparty ... You can join this event too. #twitterfoodparty is held every month (on every last Monday) with a different theme.


aww.. lovely butter cookies..I am sure Kids will love these.

@Bobo : Thanks a lot Florence! These cookies are definitely eaten by my kids :)

The bento sure looks fresh, despite of your confession about your mood :b
ah, nice cookies... i was thinking to join twitterfoodparty but gave up the idea when i found not enough time to bake during weekend.

Love that cheerful birdie! Hope I can feel so happy tomorrow morning too. Love those adorable cookies too!

@Journal Mommy Yenny : Thanks a lot Yen! I baked the cookies late at night until midnight. But hubby was kind enough to accompany me in the kitchen. The result ... panda eyes on Monday morning LOL :D

@sheri fujihara chen : Thanks a lot Sheri! I wish I can swap my cookies with your yummy sandwich ice cream cookies :)

Lia, you said you're tired but the cute birdie looks so lively :))

I'm feeling the same way this week, so tired that it's difficult to get my mind to work :) You pulled through with a great bento, though!! The little bird is so cute and I love the way you did it's wings.

I hope that the rest of your week is better!
