Bento Fun #31

Knowing that Darrius misses his regular Bento meals especially the ones with Soy Sauce Chicken, I decided to do one just for him the other day. This time I experiment with fry quail eggs in capsicums rings.

I sprinkled some nori flakes on the rice but the static from the plastic bento box made it looked a little untidy… oh well! We learn from trials and errors mah!

Darrius’s eyes sparkled when he sees the chicken drumsticks! I know he missed having it since I stopped cooking this dish when he fell sick. Ended up he did not like the quail eggs in capsicum rings. He only took one. Unlike the hard boiled quail eggs I made earlier which he goggled down in no time.

    Darrius also don’t fancy the capsicum done this way… if I cook them in fried rice or pasta… he will sapu all.

    I’m amazed at how he accepts food like capsicum, even if only one, and peas! BTW, does he eat the lettuce you prepare some times?

    shoppingmums last blog post..A Friend’s Visit

    Yeah, my boy is like sent from heaven hor? 😆 He will eat all of them if I feed him but sometimes when I just shoved him the Bento, he will be quite selective… nevertheless, he will take a bit of this and that which is good enough.

    As for the lettuce on the bento he will normally ignore but if I chopped till tiny and feed him, he will sapu all. 😛

  7. Wah.. good boy, Darrius., for eating capsicum !

    Saw that quail egg in capsicum trick in some Japanese mom’s blog but didnt think it would interest either Kimberly or Ashley. wish they eat like Darrius !!

    But I think credit must go to mummy, isn’t it, for introducing such a great array of food for him till he could accept such a wide variety of food!

    I did prepare bento everyday for Yang to nursery. As i found out that Yang not enough food in nursery and the food serve not interesting. You know la, like soy milk with toast or biscuit, milo with fried bee hoon… I prepare some fruits or vege, toast in Pooh/hello kitty, star … different shapes to him, sometime rice in Thomas shape…etc. He enjoying it. But still not enough. Babysitter said after returned from school, sure he will ask for rice again, then bath, then nan nan, then only go for nap.
    At home, he used his Bob the Builder plate only. My Jing used Chipmup Plate.
