Soba Bento

This is Soba Bento, and it is the first time I put soba in the lunch box. CC loves soba and she seemed to be more excited about this lunch than yesterday's Angry Bird :) Soba is Japanese noodle made of buckwheat. When you buy soba from store, just like pasta, you boil water, then boil soba for 5 minutes.  After that, cool it under running water. I normally pinch some out, then make little bunch for eating. Because when it drys, it starts stick together, and make it difficult to eat. How you eat is put the soba into Tsuyu which is a kind of sauce made out of Dashi (Japanese kind of soup stock), soy sauce, sugar. 
You can buy Tsuyu at the store, too. For lunch, I put tsuyu in a small container. 

Today they have a picture day at school. Hope pictures will be taken in the morning, just in case they spill sauce on the clothes....
