Easy To Do Halloween Bento Snack Box


 My lil' Ms. GJG loves snack time. She would always ask me what's in our pantry and would even decide what snack she'll bring to school.

Currently I am at a stage where I need not to worry much about what they want as my children are still too young to request for a TexMex night of tacos & burritos or an All-American night of burgers, fries and pizza. I figured I should enjoy this for I only have a few more years ... [ Read More ]
