Busy mom saying hello

Hi all. This is my first post. I'm a mom working two jobs and trying to get away from daddy sending t.v. dinners to the baby sitters. I'm just now getting started. Interested in making some of the cute stuff, but may not go totally japanese since my kids haven't eaten anything Japanese yet unless you count bourbon chicken at the mall food court. They do like my americanized rendition of stirfry, but much prefer their nuggets. I'm a personal fan of German food having lived there six years and think some of it may render itself to easy bento boxes if prepared in advance. Looking forward to meeting you all online and getting some ideas. First stop is finding someplace even slightly local to buy some bento accessories for the cute stuff.
