Yoshida Sauce Chicken Bento (382)

Today something small, but pivotal happened. Mr. Pikko has an eye infection and had to stay home, so I had to take the kids to school myself, which doesn’t sound like any big deal except that we’ve been walking Baby Girl in to her kindergarten class all this time, slowly waiting for the day when she’d feel ok with going in by herself. It seemed like a good day to try, so we started talking to her about it last night and much to my delight, she got out at the school ramp, blew me a kiss, and walked in by herself, turning around to wave goodbye three times with a happy smile on her face. It was a great way to start the morning. 😀

Yoshida Sauce Chicken Bento

I made this in a hurry this morning and didn’t have time to take a picture at home, so when I got to work I took a picture of it in the parking structure with the sunlight shining on it. It’s got rice, leftover Yoshida Sauce Chicken, broccoli, takuan slices, ume, 1/2 a boiled egg, and baby carrot sticks. It was very easy to put together, taking me about 30 minutes, but this was with egg boiling and toddler breakfast demands and sitting down to watch the GamesCom videos about FFXIV. I think without all of that this would have taken me 10 minutes tops.

I hope to have a 501 Bento Lunchesreview up soon. I know it’s late, but it’s been busy busy lately! D: As of this morning, I’m down 3.5 lbs and still building muscle!
