First day of term 2 in 2016. The boys already missed their bento and so did I. So I've been cooking up a storm this weekend, and making bacon and cheese scrolls, siomay, and milk jelly in batch. It will last for a week, I supposed.

Here are the details :


For my youngest son, I prepared :
1. Pork siomay
2. Bacon and cheese scroll
3. Corn on the cob
4. Doraemon shaped Milk jelly with nata de coco
5. Orange wedges for recess



For my eldest son, I prepared :
1. Pork siomay
2. Bacon and cheese scroll
3. Corn on the cob
4. Car shaped Milk jelly with nata de coco
5. Orange wedges for recess

Sushi and Chicken Ragout Rissoles


Last night we had sushi time where I and my boys were making sushi together. Basically I prepared some ingredients for the sushi fillings, and the boys may choose which ingredients will go in their sushi. 

The ingredients that I prepared were roast chicken, carrot, cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado, ham, soy sauce, Kewpie mayonese, and Japanese pickled ginger.

The boys were having so much fun creating their sushi. And after dinner, there were some leftover for their lunch box next day.

The first sushi fillings option was chicken roast, carrot, cucumber, soy sauce and pickled ginger. The second one was smoked salmon, cucumber, carrot, avocado, with soy sauce and pickled ginger. And last but not least was roast chicken, ham, avocado, Kewpie mayo, pickled ginger and cucumber.




For my younger son, I prepared :
1.Three types of sushi
2. Chicken ragout rissoles 
3. Corn on the cob
4. Fruit salad (pineapple, rockmelon, and grapes)



It is a similar lunch from his little brother. And the boys came back with empty lunch boxes. Mission accomplished!

Cute Egg Mold for Jelly
