Quickly posting Kids’ lunch boxes I packed in December.
It was a wet and cold month…..due to the finals and winter break, I only needed to pack lunches for two weeks.
Fried rice with eggs and carrots for Sheena.
Light creamy pasta with broccoli and carrots & baked chicken breast.
Three lunch boxes
I call this ~ Bibimbap lunch box.~Boys love it very much!
This lunch box consisted of bibimbap ingredients that would not spoil easily. Kids like kongnamul, but I don’t put any in their lunch boxes though. Kongnamul is one of namul that spoils really fast.
Although weather is cold, the kids do have to carry their lunches in their backpack all day in warm classrooms. Thus there is a chance of spoiling. It would be terrible to open up a spoiled lunch box. ^^
I also don’t add any garlic in the namul and meat in the bibimbap lunch box… garlic is great but smell wont be great when kids open their lunch box among their friends during lunch time.
This is how I prepared the lunch box.
Lightly saute rice with sesame oil, cool and place in a lunch container. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Finely chop beef (easy to eat at school) and season with soy sauce, mirin, sesame seeds and sugar. Cook the beef in a skillet and cool.
Make scrambled eggs and season with salt and pepper. Saute the julienned carrot in a skillet. Cool.
Arrange bibimbap toppings over rice. I arranged the toppings diagonally but it also can be arranged in any way you like.. circularly or vertically etc.
Kids will mix it well before they eating (without kochujang sauce).
Zachary’s box consisted of shredded lettuce, eggs, meat/bulgogi, carrot and lettuce. He came home, told me how much he really loved it. “I used to not like bibimbap but I love it now!”
