Today is back to school from the Winter Break for The Kid. Here's a hot lunch from a cold day (for us) in December: alphabet soup, saltines, grapes, a piece of homemade Hanukkah gelt, juice and a sticker. Oh, and a spoon and a napkin! It took me a few tries to arrange them, but I managed to wedge all the non-liquids into a smallish bento box using oval disposable liners to separate the food. (Sometimes I feel like I should apologize to the Japanese for all the non-traditional things I do with my bento gear!)
I hope all of you are healthy, warm and well, and enjoying the new year!
