Row, Row, Row Your Boat Bento

Lol, I do not know what to call the bento today, it's a bento inspired by the Children's song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". I am sure most people must have sang this song before. However, the inspiration for the bento was not from the version of this song that I grow up with. :P It comes from an alternate verse, that I learnt with IT, when he was a toddler, in his playgroup class. The alternate verse goes like this:

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream,
If you see a  crocodile,
Don't forget to scream.

Bento for IT, in the box are cold soba, asparagus, satay, strawberries and blueberries.

Bento for LT, same food as above.

Bento for IT's recess, in the box are cold soba, satay and grapes.

I skipped LT's box for School for today. :P

Hubby's friend who goes regularly for off shore fishing gave us a few big fish he caught. Hubby told me to cook fish head curry with the fish head last night. I don't like fish, but I love the gravy. So, I kept some to go with my prata today. :P

Round 2 for me, satay from last night. :P

And round 3 is baked portobello. Oops, ate too much today. :P


  1. I like ur lunch rather the bento today!!! Haha....coz I dislike cold soba :p. Wat a coincidence, I'm going to attempt the baked mushroom tomorrow! Fm Emily

    1. Lol, I dun like cold soba much either, but the boys love cold soba. :)

  2. Love e in e wild feel of ur box! The boys eat asparagus? Ray doesn't like. Lol at ur lunch marathon :D

    1. Yes, they do eat thin ones but they dun like the thick ones. But for Lucas, need to cut into small pieces n mix with other fd, then he'll eat.

  3. What a funny modified song, sounds great though :) Love your bento but the roti canai and satay is killing me to book a plane ticket for this summer. Can't find the authentic ones here :(

    1. Lol, yah, no idea where the version comes fr, n then the tr will scream with them at the end of the song. Do u hv frozen roti canai n premix for satay over at the Asian stores there? I can't mail over the frozen roti canai, but I would love to mail over the satay premix if u can't find over there. There's a pretty gd brand over here, tt comes with the peanut dip as well.

    2. You are so kind Ming! I can find frozen roti canai here at the Indian grocer and peanut sauce at Asian grocer. Limited brands but better than none. Have to learn to make own roti canai soon, I tried making 'chapati' and turned out good:)

    3. Rina, I've not made it fr scratch b4, over here we are spoilt with lots of Asian fd. Not sure if u know, u can check out this website,, lots of gd Asian recipes. :)

  4. Love the tiny lil boats and the tiny twist on the song lyrics..
    Did you pack sauce separately for the soba?
    Your lunches makes me drooling.. :)
