(#137) Squash and Chicken

This probably is going to be my last bento for this week, tomorrow there will be early Thanksgiving party at B's class and early release on Friday, next Monday and Tuesday.

Anyway, since last night I saw at least 3 bento-er packed squash and chicken ...lol ...
Well, squash is good and I love it, and there are so many kind of squash that I honestly do not know all of it. But I know some are more watery than others.
And last week, a good friend of mine gave me 3 pcs of good sizes squash, I am not sure what kind until I steamed it, and it tastes so good and creamy, so this is not the watery kind, definitely will be good for soup. I never cook creamy squash soup, so I need to search for some recipes.

Back to the bento, other than steamed squash and baked chicken I packed the boys steamed broccoli, grape tomatoes. I packed fruit on the 2nd tier, its apple wedges, raspberries and fresh fig.


Here is the one for D :

Thanks Lyndsey, I am pretty lucky my boys are not picky, but there are some days where they can be really picky too ^_^

Thanks for your nice comments Lia, Kabocha with honey uuhhh sounds yummy!!!
As for thanksgiving, we got an invitation from a good friend of mine (she's the one who gave me the squash). So seems like I won't cook the bird at home this thanksgiving.

This looks like a delicious lunch and I really like the panda container that you have it in! I've never seen a fresh fig before....I only have had fig newton cookies and I'm guessing that's pretty different :)

Thanks a lot Jenni ^_^ I love those panda and frog container too, perfect size for my boys ^_^
I do not see fresh fig too often here, so whenever I see some I have to get it. I love its taste ^_^
