Bento Mania #26

For us, our Saturday is usually spent lazying in bed till late morning where we only managed to catch our brunch at 11.00am. Last Saturday being a schooling days for most schools to replace the upcoming Hari Raya break, I prepared hot porridge for daughter’s bento – something that I don’t get to prepare for her on a weekdays.

We have here ABC dry scallops porridge which consist of diced carrot, potatoes, onion, dry scallops and some fish balls. I season them with concentrated chicken stock and written here on the labels is a bold “NO MSG”. How true can that be? For dessert, we have red dragon fruits and checkered apple.

We manged to fit everything nicely into a insulation bag. I was moved when Daughter blurted this, “Mummy, you don’t go to work so that I have hot and nice lunch to bring to school.” I also wish lor.

According to Daughter, she took a longer time to finish the porridge as it is still hot (but not piping hot). The poor girl only managed to finish half of her apple as the “Prefect-Has-Blew-The-Whistle” and “We-Must-Stop-Eating”. *sigh… Talking about which, I have prepared a tutorial on how to craft the checkered apple. Stay tune for my next post.

    Btw, i also use the No MSG chic cube to season my dishes sometimes. No MSG but certainly lots of salt. 😛

    It is the encouragement (from bloggers) and appreciation (from family members) that keeps me going on. Once I started, I can’t stop. The inspiration just keep on coming. Thanks fellow comrades .

    Selena – Daughter is so crazy over HSM. Watch out for the HSM College years! I can’t wait to watch them.

    i would LOVE for my kids to eat dragon fruits like yours do but they wouldn’t touch it. Kimberly asked, “What is that purply thingy, but no thanks” sigh..

    love the thermos idea but dare not try it on my kids without my supervision. may be too hot to handle.
