Bento Kits and Lunch Boxes

My children  eats lunch at school once in a while  for menus that they like but most of the times, I prepare their lunches.  I don't mind preparing their lunches because it is fun especially with these  cute little bento accessories that I got from a dear friend who lives in Japan.  I always want to have  bento stuff but the only thing I could find here or online are  square  shapes and they don't even have  other accessories so I am thrilled that a sweet and thoughtful  friend sent me these goodies.
My daughter was absolutely thrilled because  likes  to eat  her food with cute accessories like these.  I thik it makes it more fun to eat their lunches when they see the pretty little things.  The  lunch picks  are perfect  for cherry tomatoes and  fruits.  The animal-shaped bread cutter  is  awesome because it makes a plain bread fun to eat.  I love the furi containers because it  makes my son wanna eat his rice (he is not fond of rice). 
These  accessories are all pretty.  My daughter absolutely adores these  music notes picks!
These Mickey Mouse  mini forks  are so adorable.
Daughter is a big fun of Hello Kitty stuff so she's so excited to see these.
I love these  silicone containers.  It makes it very flexible to  put in  their lunch boxes.
If your kid love sauce, ketchup, or any kind of dressing, these cute  plastic bottles are perfect.
My son was very pleased when I made his  bell peppers with these alphabet  shaped cutters.
The lid of the bento box got damaged but I will be fixing this with  mighty glue.
I also love the postcards that she included in the packages!  Thank you so much sister!
I still yet to learn the fun and art of making bento but for now, here's what I can do for the kids' lunch.
Thank you so much once again sistah.  We greatly appreciates  all these!  The kids said thank you so much as well!

Banana Nut Bread Made by Our Little Chef

Here's another    delicious  treat that our little pastry chef has made in the kitchen.  It is a banana nut bread.  After the very first success that she had making the  coconut cream pie, she has been  so inspired to bake and this is one of them.  
 I am just glad that she let me take pictures while she was preparing  the batter.  Usually, I am not allowed in the kitchen lol.
 The kitchen get  messy when she is there but it's okay, as long as she is   enjoying what she does and she is learning, that's what matters.
 This banana nut bread is the nuttiest I have tasted.  She  put a whole bag of walnuts in it lol.
 Love, love, love, how it turned out!
It was really good that I  ate it for breakfast  for so many days ha ha ha.  She is very cautious now when she uses the oven because she burned her finger on the very first time that  she baked by herself.  I will post some more of her baking adventures soon.  

Stunning Performance of Alleluia by Anna Clendening

When I am in the zone to listen to music, I go to  youtube and find some amazing voices like Anna Clendening.  Her audition to America's Got Talent made me cry.  Her story  is very touching as well.  Glad that she found  herself fighting through music. It's nice to see inspiring stories  like she has,  I wonder if artists like her  shops at www.musiciansfriend.com for their music instruments?

Pork Roast

This is what we  are having for dinner, a pork roast.  I started  cooking the pork last night before I went to bed so that the meat will be so tender today.  Then I added some veggies this morning.  I loaded it up with carrots since I have lots of carrots from my garden.  Celery is also a great addition.  I chose not to add  potatoes this time for a chance.  I added  lemon grass and it just makes the taste and the smell so good!
The price of beef is  so  expensive nowadays that we started just buying pork , chicken and even incorporated  ground turkey as replacement for ground beef.

Music and Song

Whenever my children arrive from the school, the first thing we do is go through their  school bag and see if they have  home work to do or papers to be signed.  It is  better to do their homework  first thing  because  they don't forget about it.  This photo was in my son's folder today.  
The photo reminds me of the korg synthesizer that I saw online.  I am glad that the school where my children goes  still  teaches about God and the music teacher is very dedicated in teaching the children.
