A mother asked his boy "Do you like your lunchbox today?" The boy replied "Yes!".
As the boy grows older each day and becomes more vocal, he begins to ask "Can you make Lion, Panda, Dinosaur, Giraffe....etc??". Next, he just asks you to keep it simple or no cute stuff because he has already grown up......

Quinoa ("Keen-Wah") and Oatmeal
Bento No. 262
This is something interesting and it is the first time I cooked quinoa and oatmeal porridge. Why quinoa? I first bought it to make crackers that I found the receipe here but the ingredients somehow did not bind together and hence, there were no crackers but a bowl of mush sadly. But I will try again with smaller portion. 'Never give up', a phrase we used to encourage our boy. That is how my storage ended up with a packet of unused quinoa. Personally, I prefer rice over quinoa. However, since my boy does not like rice porridge and he has requested for oatmeal instead. So I added some quinoa into the oatmeal for a complete protein and nutritious porridge. For taste and sweetness, I stirred in some sweet potato boiled in black sugar water - my own concoction! On the side, he has steamed egg with minced meat, blanched cauliflower, bunny apple, grapes and pomelo. To my surprise, he likes it :))
