Pot luck the end of year party

We had the end of year party at our house. It was fun time, and forgot to take more pictures. 
This is before everyone brought dishes. We had more than we could eat! 
I found that it was a great way to have a party. We had variety of food, and 
easy to clean up, too! 

This is one of dishes I made, fried rice and stir fry chicken. 

We had a lot better food than snack vege. But just the sake of look on the counter :) 
What I've been liking is this cheese with cranberry in it. Yummy! 

Our party was successful. Amazingly, 11 kids were occupied with Wii, Lego, and 
some other games in the basement, so all moms and dads could have a great time, too :)

Santa rice ball

This is a Santa rice ball. The santa's hat was made with red pepper, 
and white part is egg white from boiled egg. 

Onigiri with Pig fish sausage

Just to make sausages look more interesting, I made pigs. 
I got this fish sausage at Japanese market, it was quite good :)

Elf on the sandwich

Kids have been kind of sick. Or not quite 100 %. 
A bad stomach flu is going around, and they don't have very much 
appetite. It's difficult to make something when they are like that. 
I have to think, something not to heavy, something filling, 
and something somewhat nutritious. 
Hope everyone will get through without getting sick! 

Salmon Flakes

Hi there! It's been kind of busy, and I've been lazy that a lot of lunch are 
repeats these days. Sorry for no update for a while! 
These are salmon bento, salmon flakes on rice. It is quite good :) 
If you want to try, salmon flakes are sold in asian market in a jar, 
refrigerated section.

Cat Bento

Today's lunch is cat's rice ball bento. 
I tired to curve "meow" on the apple, didn't succeed. 
JJ eats some Japanese flavor dishes. So I added Japanese pumpkin 
for her side today. Hope she will like it.

Today's lunch is pancakes. A little tip: I put small cut parchment papers 
in between pancakes, so that they won't stick together.
