Bentolicious #183
Welcome to Monday again! Hope all of you had a great weekend and everyone can have a great start for this week. Kids' school hours are now back to normal until 2PM after the mid-test last week. Bento is back to normal lunch size. I made a puppy from rice and decorated it with nori, jelly ball, and inari skin. Inside the box : steamed rice, bean sprouts & spring onion stir fry, cherry tomatoes, fish & cucumbers in yellow spices, and carrots. I hope the fish will not be too spicy, I used sweet chili so kids can still eat it. My girl has no problem with spicy foods now, but my boy is still adjusting from the mild level. Soon, I can put more spicy foods in their bento.

The Bento4Japan auctions on eBay are still going on.
Please support and check it out if you have time.
