Recently, NaNak had to stay back at school for an extra subject. Due to time restrictions, she couldn't have lunch before classes. So I thought, seeing as how I was free, why not make a bento(lunchbox) for her?
I made this Apple Salad specially for picky her, hoping that she would happily eat it with the surprise of getting a bento.
1粒 红苹果 1 apple
2汤匙 葡萄干 2tbsp raisin
1 1/2 汤匙 芝麻沙拉酱 1 1/2 tbsp sesame salad dressing
一些 鲜菜叶和小番茄 some greens and cherry tomatoes
1. Skin the apple and dice it. Put it inside a mixing bowl, add in raisin and sesame salad dressing, then mix well. Serve with greens and cherry tomatoes.
I made three similar bentos: one for NaNak, one for Mell(my goddaughter and one of NaNak's best friend), one for Hui(NaNak's partner-in-crime). After all, sharing is caring!
After eating the bento, one of them actually said that if she was a guy, she'd marry me! So if you thought it was a lot of work making these, the truth is that I felt highly amused! Hahahaha......

According to NaNak, the bentos were not only delicious, they also attracted many envious gazes from her classmates. Seeing her happiness, how can I not be happy?
