A super short post because I’m cooking before tonight’s evening of television. In case you haven’t heard, LOST Season 6 starts tonight and I only have 20 minutes to get all this done. The rice cooker is switched on, the kabocha is roasting and the chicken is marinating. After the show is over… I pack the bentos for tomorrow’s lunches.
Today’s featured bento however was assembled last night; it’s a “dry oyakodonburi”. Brown rice topped with chicken and egg. I have lots of broccolini so we are sticking with that for a few more lunches and the ubiquitous tomatoes are in there too! The “oyakodon” as it is sometimes called is garnished with shredded green onion, nori, beni shoga and wasabi peas. So there you go!
Oh yeah…today I saved another $35.00 towards my challenge. See the $aving Challenge page for the running total. I’m extra happy with myself because I made the right decision and not stop for take-out. I wanted to pick up bahn mi and munch on that while watching LOST. Ack! It was tough but I drove past the deli shop knowing that giving in would mean failure. So here I am typing furiously before I head back to the stove to stir the chicken!
