Bento #226 – A warm lunch

Bento226_PastaBento content: cheese tortellini in the thermos, Carrot sticks with Ranch dip, slices of Bartlett pears and mini banana chocolate muffin in the other containers.

Even though there is a microwave in C’s class, she does not like to use it. According to her, there is always a long line of kids waiting to use the microwave to heat up their lunch. Since lunch time is only 20 mins, she does not have time to eat if she has to wait in line. That’s why when I want to serve her warm food, I usually use thermos. I got this particular thermos from Singapore but sometimes I also use the Thermos Funtainer. Both works really well for school lunch.

Bento#225 – Simplicity at its best


Monday lunch is either a very awesome lunch (if I have time to shop during the weekend) or a very simple lunch which happens when I don’t have time to shop over the weekend. This past weekend, we went out of town, so that means no grocery shopping over the weekend. So lunch is  a very simple affair – a lunchable wannabe.

Bottom tier contains carrot sticks, pepperjack cheese slices and pepperoni. Top tier contains flaxseed brown rice crackers, Ranch dressing for carrots and waffle style chips. Also on the side are some grapes.

Happy Monday!!


Breadfarm @ Bow, WA

Happy Friday!!! I love Fridays especially when it is a 3 day weekend! Today we will be heading out to my favorite bakery for some yummy muchies. Breadfarm is a tiny artisan bakery located in a tiny town called Bow, WA (sometimes also known as Edison, WA) Bow is about an hour drive from Seattle and it seems kinda out of the way but it is actually a 10 minute detour from I-5. I love coming here because it always seem like I am in one of those Wild West movie with tumbleweeds rolling about town. The last know population count for Edison in the 2010 census is only 133. However surprisingly there are a few really interesting restaurants there including Breadfarm. They do get a lot of people en route along the scenic Chuckanut Drive.

At Breadfarm, we love to get the artisan breads there especially the allium bread and baguette. Other yummy goodies that we love are the coconut macaroons and the French macarons. Also shown on the plate is a friand and fruit danish.

Note that they only accept cash or check. Also even though their store hours are from 9am – 7pm, it is advisable to get there earlier because usually their products are running very low in the evening.

Bento #224 – Chicken & Biscuits Day!


I remember when I was in college, I used to love to go to Red Lobster. Sure I love the seafood but what I love the most was their Cheddar Biscuit. After so many years, I still love those biscuits and started making them at home. Now even C loves them.

Today’s bento contains some of those yummy cheddar biscuits, cheesy omelette roll, chicken strips with Thai sweet chili sauce and finally grapes.


Bento #223 – Fried chicken day


Today’s bento contains fried chicken wings with Thai sweet chili sauce in the blue container, checkered apple, celery sticks, M&Ms for dessert and a little pirate Babybel Cheese hiding in the corner.

Happy Monday, everyone!!
