Gramma's Bentos!

It's All About The Food...

This post is dedicated to Gramma, coz of her fabulous cooking skills and dedication to serve the family scrumptious food (which now spoils us to the point that we compare other people's cooking to hers...o.O") Why you ask?

Recently, she found a new interest: Kyaraben Bento, also known as Character Japanese Lunch Boxes. So interested, that she would wake up extra early to prepare some cute yet VERY delicious lunch boxes for Rachel and Mom. Case in point:

Gramma's first attempt for Mom's lunch box...some rice balls, sausages and assorted meats with fruits on the side *wink*. It doesn't really have the character thingy just yet, but there were some cute carrot cutouts (complete with sesame seeds for eyes o.O) and pretty looking sausages...*drools* Mom doesn't mind having cute stuff for lunch, coz they are healthy and tastes yummy!

Gramma got a little elaborate for Rachel though, since Rachel ADORES looking at cute stuff and being envied by her classmates in school about her pretty lunch box!

See? Even the leftovers got the lunch box eh?

This was Gramma's second attempt for gets prettier and prettier *grins*

And this was Mom's lunch box...yummy!

Some close-ups on the yummy food...stir fried vegetables on a pretty flower-shaped tomato!

And the 'teddy bear' just waiting to be eaten...LOL! It had raisins for the eyes and nose..heh!

On behalf of Mom and Rachel, I'd like to say 'ARIGATO GRAMMA!' *grins* Keep on the lookout for more yummy-looking lunch boxes from Gramma in this space...*wink*


Today is also my Gotcha Day! YAYYY! I can't believed it's already 2 years since I was here at my beloved home...Mom did a little something for my Gotcha Day (since she missed out on my first year, so this year she did something...heheheh!)

AAAANNNNNDDDD...that's not all! She made some *ahem* treats for me too, but according to her they turned out to be a big disaster...*rolls eyes* Trust Mom to make a big blunder out of simple dog treat recipes...will post more about that in my next entry. Until then, here's a sneak peek:

Apologies for not visiting YET AGAIN...>.<" Been reading your blogs, but haven't got time to post up comments since I have so many to catch up on! Will do that ASAP...Scottie's honor! *grins*

My girl loves bento. She wishes my grandma wasn't such a picky eater because then should could make bento lunches for her to take to work. Your grandma is doing a great job with her bento boxes. Your mom and aunt are so lucky.
PS Happy Gotcha Day!
