Lunch Box #1
Okay, call me a Kiasu (fear or losing) Mum. I'm learning how to prepare lunch box for my son who's going to Primary 1 next year. I'm trying out the ways of packing the lunch box, what I can pack and how much to pack in it. So I'm starting a new label, Happy Box, here.
It will be pretty much the same as those labelled Happy Meal except these will be packed in a box (obviously), which I think is a lot harder to do. I'll still make Kid's dinner for my daughter who is 'smart' enough not to be taken in by all the cute looking food. I think she find them weird and non-food like to be eaten. Yes, I'm still trying very hard to make her eat food other than her few favourite food. I have been recycling food ideas I did for my son for my daughter and so far I haven't been successful.
I'll think of new food ideas when I have finished trying out the old ones. Back to my lunch box ideas. My son requested to have Japanese Curry today and so I thought why not try to let him have it in a lunch box instead?
So this is my first simple and straight forward lunch box. It has meat balls and Japanese Curry. The results ... this lunch box is too small for him - he needs an extra serving of it. I use Glad Press 'n' Seal's multipurpose sealing wrap to cover the curry and it works well; no leaks. But I guess I can't use this lunch box. I must keep in mind to use 2 separate lunch box instead when I do make this for his lunch.
