On the eve of the second post-summer break Saturday of Japanese school, we had the following discussion as we were driving home from daycare:
Me: What do you want for Japanese school bento this week?
I looked at my daughter in the rear-view mirror, and she looked back, confidently. “I’m eating ALLL of it,” she circled the air in front of her with her right hand. “Me too!” repeated her little sister, eyebrows furrowed and nodding seriously.
Hence – her lunch box per her request.
Sliced and peeled cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden
Roasted beets, cut into hearts
Onigiri with okaka filling
Boiled quail egg
Back into the swing of things we go….
