Speedy spaghetti lunch for toddler

Newer Older

This was a super-fast bento (took less than 10 minutes to pack). I nuked frozen homemade meatballs, steamed the broccoli and kabocha squash in a microwave mini steamer, and plopped in a foil cup of leftover spaghetti I portioned out for freezing. Full details on freezing spaghetti here.

    Well, I hope he's more attentive to this bento than the one you brought for him on Friday :)

    Hey, tousle the boychik's hair for me. He won't like it, but it's gotta be done ;)
