My Three Kid Circus

This may be as crazy as it gets… but we're lovin' it!

And so soccer season begins…which means dinner in the car on Thursday nights.  I’m not sure why its taken me this long to figure out that I could pack a Bento dinner.

The Contents: potstickers, carrot sticks, frozen peas and corn and almonds.

The Details: My kids LOVE frozen peas and corn and really, by the time they ate these, they were pretty much thawed out anyhow.  I didn’t have time to pan fry these potstickers so my kids just ate them boiled.

The Verdict: Why haven’t I done this before?  So easy, and while it wasn’t enough dinner for my middle son, it was definitely enough to tide him over until 7:30.  That being said, if I do this particular dinner again, I will throw their potstickers into our stainless steel thermoses to keep them warm, and just do a smaller container of peas and corn.  The saran wrap is just one more thing to deal with.  Won’t be as fun in terms of presentation, but logistically, I think it’ll be better.

*I do apologize for the bad pictures.  Our camera has been broken for a long time and I’ve been using my phone’s camera.
