Father's Day 2015 (And A Bento!)

We are a very simple family and we always prefer to have just a tiny celebration at home whenever there's an occasion.  Our Father's Day celebration might not have been grand but the important thing is we are together as a family happily.

I cooked spaghetti with Clara Ole Three Cheese sauce, added in some shiitake mushroom, peas, ham and some all purpose cream. It was a very easy recipe really. And oh, may I just say that the Clara Ole Three Cheese sauce was sooo good! I'm not paid or sponsored for saying this, it's really how I think it is. Even hubby said it was really yummy. I think it's probably now our favorite spaghetti sauce! 

I also cooked Maja Mais with cheese overload, hihi! Cheese is my hubby and our son's favorite thing in this world! We didn't have a grater though so I had no choice but to cut the cheese in cubes. :-P

Also made a simple and rush dedication because hubby was coming back inside the house already when I did it and I didn't want him to see what I was doing, haha!

Olaf Bento

I shared with you in the previous post about my recent bento tools haul. I happened to chance upon a snowflakes plunger at The Landmark in Trinoma so I got that one, too. And I can't wait til Christmas before I start using it, hahaha! So, I thought, maybe I could try my luck and make a Frozen-themed bento. Since my kid is a boy, obviously I couldn't make Elsa or Ana, hahaha! So, the best option is the super adorable Olaf! 

And so, tadah, here's what I made for Trev's bento.

Angry Birds Bento

Trev and I were at the grocery the other week when I spotted this green-colored fish balls. My mind almost instantly thought of transforming them into piggies since I still have some angry birds fish cakes at home. So, I got a pack and made my thought into reality. Hihi!

This was the result.

Butterfly Bento

Oh, this was one of his requests. He specifically wanted me to prepare a butterfly bento because the other day, he witnessed a butterfly emerged from its chrysalis here at our frontyard. It was so amazing! Now, he knows the life cycle of a butterfly already. Hihi! He always looks at our calamansi plant because there's quite a lot of caterpillars in there right now and some have transformed into a chrysalis already. 

Anyway, he remembered about it the night before and so the next day he asked for a butterfly baon.

Thus, here's what I was able to come up with.

Owl Bento

Okay, this is really an owl bento, because that's what I planned to do. However, when the little one saw it, he said that it's the bird daw from the movie "Yellowbird". Okay, I just conceded and agreed! Hahaha! 

I will just make another owl bento in the future. I hope he sees it as an owl next time! :-P
