Tae Kwon Do Bento


As I am sitting at the Dojang and watching my girl do her second Taekwondo class of the day (woohooo!) I am delighted to be putting up this bento that she had for school lunch recently. She is so enamored of TKD and wants to start entering tournaments. She recently got her third green stripe on her yellow belt and will soon be testing for green belt. I love watching her practice, it's funny sometimes and just plain awesome other times.
Left side: Sauteed tofu heart, cheddar cheese blocks, purple grapes, cherry tomato, sweet gherkins, baby corn and carrot letters.
Right side: Jasmine rice covered by sesame carrots, green peas and corn. Mozzarella cheese dobok (uniform) with cheddar cheese belt, parsley sprig green stripes.
I got the appellation of "good, good, good mommy" for this bento, lol. Warms my heart so, it does. I'm going to have to start thinking up extra excuses for making bentos this summer. I've gotten spoiled by schooldays!

Thank you all so much! I was surprised by how much A-chan liked this bento since it wasn't very cute, and I'm glad that you all do too!!

It makes me so happy that she loves taekwondo so much. When she first started she was afraid to jump with both feet off the ground and now she's doing incredible jumps, etc. She has soooo much more self confidence and perseverance now!
