Beginner Bento

Well it appears that working full time and raising 2 kids is getting in the way of my blogging. But I'm not ready to quit, even if I turn into one of those bi-monthly blogs.

Anyways, lets talk about my new obsession; bento or Obento if you prefer. It's a Japanese lunch sometimes referred to as a bento box. It's art with food and I love it. Ya know, because I love art, and I love food. So I went crazy and ordered a bento box and several accessories. From Japan. So I may not get them for a while. But this hasn't stopped me from creating my very first bento lunch. One for Stephan, one for me and a modified one for Francis who got dibs on the leftover tortellini.

This lunch includes:
- onigiri (rice balls)
- dumplings (pot stickers)
- cut veggies
- steamed bunny bun
- cookies

And this is the one for Francis - yup, that's a cheese alligator!

domestic godess?

A friend of a friend was selling this little kitchenette so I picked it up this morning. When Naomi got home from daycare she was so excited she was jumping up and down.

Whoohoo, the kitchen of my dreams!!!
...careful ... don't want the souffle to drop!

Hi Honey, what time will you be home for dinner?

gotta keep stirring the risotto!
Hmmm ... I'm sure I bought eggs ...
