Nihongo Nom Nom Nom

Last Thursday, (or actually, a week ago last Thursday: time does march on), well, the boys had their first school trip. It was a whole school trip to a local park and this meant I needed to supply them with a packed lunch. In Japan this is called obento and *can* be a big deal. I made it a big deal. On my potential list of elements in the bento box was:

  • weiner octopus
  • rice balls
  • pasta salad + olives
  • cherry tomatoes and sticks of cucumber
  • hunks of cheese
  • dried mango
  • wraps

I never did find any wraps, so I went with everything else and voila! 

Bento boxes #1
The fruits of my labours (minus the dried mango).

    Absolutely beautiful. I trust the boys and their friends were suitably impressed?

      They were. I also earned some much-needed Brownie Points from the teachers, so it was worth the effort. (It was fun too!)
