On the nights when my hubby has to work late, little girl and I normally eat something semi-homemade. I have had the pleasure of reading up blog postings from ladies who make beautifully displayed bento boxes lately (Cooking Gallery and My Little Messy and Cheeky), even though I am not remotely as creative, but the idea of making meals look like a work of art is really appealing to me, so I’ve decided to play around with displaying dumplings, dipping sauce, a Mexican breakfast taco and sweet papayas. What do you think about my first attempt? Little girl was wooing and ahhing the whole time, and it took her less than 10 minutes to finish the whole plate. The one I made for myself was not as pleasing to the eyes, but it didn’t hurt my appetite one bit! Oh I forgot to mention the dumplings were handmade by my parents, they are smaller than the store bought ones, but definitely more flavorful because the stuffing was chopped up and mixed by hand, also combined with love! Yummy!
Here are a few more photos, hope you enjoy. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
