Leftovers make great bentos especially pizza! Sometimes when I am super lazy, I order the school lunch pizza but that costs me about $5 for 1 slice! That is a little painful when I can get a whole pizza for about $10 outside but once in a while for convenience sake, I do it. But […]

I love Hawaiian rolls and I usually get them when I make BBQ pulled pork. BBQ pulled pork sliders on Hawaiian rolls are the best. Unfortunately I ran out of BBQ pulled pork before we finished the rolls. So instead of pulled pork slider, I made ham and lettuce sliders for lunch. The size of […]

Even though there is a microwave in C’s classroom to warm up the food, she does not really like to do that because there is usually a long line of kids waiting. Lunch is usually only 20 minutes and if she has to wait in line to heat up her food, she usually is not […]

Another reason why I like to pack bento is that even if you have one little piece of cake left, you can add it to the lunchbox. I had one little piece of butter cake left and it fits perfectly in C’s bento as her dessert. The butter cake is sandwiched by 2 heart-shaped peanut […]
