Chicken Teriyaki Bento

I am not as lazy as yesterday but still not 100% into bentomaking thingy just yet. I must admit I push myself a little too hard and that's not good. But I feel guilty if I only packed the boys lame lunches, even though I know they will eat it no matter what.
The thing is I have so many things going on in my mind right now, D’s birthday coming, have to make Dr’s appointment for the baby and so on and so on. This week is just insanely busy. And I could not take a break of packing them lunches since there's no cafeteria at their school.

Anyway, I prepared chicken teriyaki and steamed rice for the boys. I marinated the chicken overnight so it’s nice and ready for the next day.
I thought I would like to make the Stegosaurus Dino rice for B since he’s so totally into Dinosaurs world. So I use the cookie cutter that I got from the kitchen gadget store last week, but it took me a good 10 minutes just to release the rice from the dino cookie mold, yet it didn't came out as good as I thought it would. Oh boy!! My Bad!! I should’ve use the mold when it’s wet or spray it with oil spray before I use it. Bad bad me!! I guess when you’re not 100% then everything just seems to be wrong, you can totally see it from the result. Me not happy with it! ^.^

So for Dylan I decided to just shape the rice with bear onigiri rice mold, and here are the pictures :

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Do you always prepare 2 kinds of different bento? Wow ... you are amazing! I couldn't manage to make 2 different bento every morning, so my 2 kids will always had the same bento :o)

Thanks Lia :)
Not always, but sometimes especially when one wants something and the other just doesn't like it. Or when my 2nd son requested PB&J then I have to make my oldest one another kind because he's allergic to peanut.
Just for this one I did it because the Dino is too hard to make while the bear one is much easier because I use the right gadget.
BTW, most of the time I prepared the bento at night, that way I can survive the morning chaos.
