The Bread Story

When come to preparation of bread, I tried to keep them as simple as possible preferably without using the cookie cutter if I can. One will have to be very creative and imaginative in presentation to impress the child.

Bento Mania #23

My usual way will be cutting up criss-cross forming triangle shape. You will be thinking that I’ve threw away the crust from the bread. But you are wrong. In this photoshoot, the one with crust was hidden under the first layer. Nothing go to waste this way as the kids doesn’t mind eating the crust too.

The kids heart peanut butter jelly sandwich very much. My usual brand is always Smuckers Gobber but the price has shot up lately. To stick to my frugal living list, I bought a different brand instead. Wanna take a guess? They tasted the same anyway.

Bento Mania #24

I make a big omelet with sausages tho scramble would taste better but knowing kids can’t handle scramble egg very well as the eggs will tend to drop off while eating. Messy, messy! Come to think of it, I shouldn’t have pack Milo and a choco bar since both of them are choco. *pfft* Nevermind. Anyway, there is some rice puff in the choco bar.

That’s all for the bread story.

Bento Mania #25

When I was too tired to wake up early, kids will have non-homecook meal but was prepared as home. So who say that is not counted *sticking out tongue*


Clock wise from top:

  • Mini tarts with orange jam, strawberry jam and blueberry
  • Mix nuts consist of almond, macadamia and pecan.
  • Marshmallow
  • Checkered apple again.

    I always love your Bento posts. They make me feel like having kids as well. NOT. =) Joking la. I mean the food.. I can make those yummie ones for Kian, if I can be bothered.

    Oh! speaking of Smuckers Gobber!!!! OMG! Kian saw me mix my peanut butter with straberry jam. He thinks I’m weird. I argued with him lah, Im not crazy. I did have this spread when I was little. But, I just dont know whats called. Turn out, you post this today! Holy cow!! Im so so so going to show it to Kian.

    We are not able to get Smuckers Gobber here. So I combine Kraft Super Crunchy Peanut Butter and De Flour Berry/mixed berry spread. Bloody brilliant, eh? 😉
