Toddler lunch

11 Feb

I found a stainless steel bento box to replace my son’s current plastic bento box. This totally reminded me of my lunches when I was growing up in Korea. In those days, classrooms had a stove in the center to keep the room warm. And everyone would stack their rice containers on the stove to keep them warm.

My son went back to school today after being stuck indoor all day yesterday thanks to the snow day. (Except for a 10 minutes trip out to the driveway to help his dad “shovel” the snow.) I am going to resume keeping a record of his lunches because I am totally lame like that! Here’s what was on the menu today: chicken nuggets, tofu with soy/sesame dressing, broccoli, korean sweet potato and fruit.

Yesterday was a snow day for most people living in the Chicago land area. I don’t remember seeing so much  snow ever in my lifetime. I worked from home and my husband worked on clearing the driveway. That took him SIX hours. I asked if he wants to get a snow plow after this ordeal and he still said “nah.” What??

This is a view of our patio. The pillar you see on the top center is about two feet tall.
