Chicken and Rice Bento 3

While I was on vacation last week I had the opportunity to pack a couple of real school -lunch bentos!

They were for two very sweet high school students who were gracious to indulge me with my hobby. Okay, obsession.

Their mom said they eat about anything but I kept things pretty basic with teriyaki chicken, fried rice, tamagoyaki, cucumbers and sliced tomatoes.

Luckily for me their pantry had a stash of containers and I was able find these…a perfect size!

Everything worked out great and I heard that the kids enjoyed their bentos that day!

In-Flight Bento 17

Posted on August 10, 2011 by Debra

It’s a melancholy moment when I pack an in-flight bento.  But happy memories overshadow the sad good-byes especially when I include foods that are reminiscent of the fun-filled visit!

Salmon is de-riqueur for a Seattle-style lunch and Rainier cherries from our trip to the farmers market evoke happy flashbacks of a enjoyable vacation!

That alone should conjure desires for return trip…and to seal-the-deal…I added baked chicken, sautéed asparagus, steamed carrots, tomato, white rice and a luscious chunk o’ purple sweet potato!

Bought some rainbow chard for the first time!

  

Not a bento post but I did use the chard in this bundle (far right) for two bentos here and here!  Arriving at this farmers market was  serendipitous; what a nice way to stumble upon fresh produce!

Bobby’s Hawaiian Style Restaurant 9

Posted on August 13, 2010 by Debra

The first thing you’ll notice about the food at “Bobby’s Hawaiian Style Restaurant” is the lack of greens!  Unless of course you order the lau lau!   But I’m not complaining…it’s the nature of Hawaiian-style food and it’s delicious!
