Chicken nuggets

I like to prepare bento at night, that way I have all the time I need to think and decided what’s to pack for the boys lunches. Even so, there are so many nights where I just decided to throw whatever I have in the fridge and not even bother to decorate it :D. Another reason is I do not like doing things in such a hurry, I like to be well prepared and have the bento ready than dealing with the morning chaos. Since not only that I have to get the 2 boys ready but I also still nursing 6 months old baby at the same time. So no matter how early I get up there’ll always something I have to deal with in the morning.

And last night bebe won’t let me be in the kitchen at all, he just kept crying and crying and it starts to bugs me, I don’t like the idea of letting the baby crying until he/she’s falling asleep. So I rushed to finish up the bento and am not quite happy with the result. I think he’s teething that’s why, and that poor bebe will have to get poked this afternoon. OUCH! I know! I don’t like to see his face getting so red crying and screaming. But I have to do this is for his benefit.

Okay I packed the boys some American onigiri and chicken nuggets, I call it American onigiri because I cooked the rice with chicken stock instead of seasoning it with salt, sugar and vinegar. And I filled it with some homemade roasted chicken that we have for dinner the other night. Originally I was gonna make some rice balls, but the size is a little too big because I want to pack them more than one piece. So I used these square onigiri maker that I just got from eBay. Speaking of which I have to mention this ebay store  JstuffSale_dotcom, this is one of my favorite ebay stores, the service is great and many times she give me little extra bento stuff, so I’d recommend any bento-er to visit her store.

Alright back to the bento shall we, there is a star and a heart stamped on top of the rice, I filled the heart one with capelin roe and I meant to fill the star one with a star cucumber to add some color, but as I stated earlier bebe just kept on crying so I decided to cover the empty stamp with flowered carrot. Bad choice! knowing the capelin roe is orange so it's double orange :P Oh well, there are always next time when it comes to bento, right? ^.^

Next to the rice are some omelet, fresh celery stalks and flowered carrots and radish, and some parsley for garnish. On the next tier I had some fresh apples, strawberries and cucumber.

Have a great weekend ^.^
