Today is the first day Bailey had to take his lunch to pre-school. So, while the kids played with their new kitchen toy set (remind me to get another frying pan- they fight over that thing like CRAZY!!) I attempted to make o-bento.
I think it turned out alright and hopefully it will be enough to keep Bailey full until school lets out. I made yakisoba (fried noodles with lots of veggies), mini pot stickers or dumplings, rolled egg, mixed veggies sauteed in butter and a couple of star shaped hash browns. I threw a couple of strawberries on top for color and because I ran out of space.
All of it gets loaded into his lunch box bag along with a fork and spoon and a cup for milk. He also had to take a place mat and a bib with him.
The true judge of o-bento success is how much he really ate. We shall see......
