Time flies. Last year around this time, I was busy preparing (myself and) my little one for her primary school. School orientation, buy new books, uniform, stationeries etc. One new activity also popped up in my mind - I need to prepare lunch for my little one. Previously, lunch is provided for in her preschool.
Like a first-time excited mum to her newborn baby, I went online and bought books to check out the beautiful kids lunch boxes and bentos. OH... I can cook this, this and this!!! Ha...well, as usual, I'm simply too lazy to try out any of the cute-looking lunches. I love to cook, but I simply cannot "tahan" spending hours to beautify the lunch box. Moreover, after spending so long on "touching up" the food, won't they turn cold? Sorry dear, no cute bears or smiley face sandwiches for you, instead, here are some of the lunches that mum had prepared for you (and myself).
Stir-Fry Udon, Shredded Chicken & Beans Salad, Tofu Miso Soup and Ham & Bean Rolls.
