Oyakodon Bento 5

Posted on October 13, 2010 by Debra

Another quick post… I need to call it a night!   This bento box lunch is a  simple “dry” oyakodon.

It’s just  eggs and chicken over rice.   To disguise these common ingredients, I’ve added green onion, nori, renkon, and enoki mushrooms.

Hmmm, the  splash of pickled red ginger —beni shoga, furthers the  deception don’t you think?

Adding this to “What’s for lunch Wednesday?”

Vegetarian Fried Rice Bento Box 4

Posted on November 09, 2009 by Debra

friedrice_bentoIt appears, after looking back on recent photos, that my bento boxes have become more utilitarian in design.  No fancy picks, purple potatoes or kamaboko roses!  Hmm…I’m not sure why, and my first instinct is to say that we are too busy.  Yes, we are that,  but we are always busy, nothing has really changed so I don’t have much of an excuse. Saba Man hasn’t commented, which is no surprise.  His easy going manner, (yes, he’s a keeper) and cast iron stomach allows for much experimentation. “As long as it tastes good”, is his usual answer.  Maybe the upcoming holidays will inspire me!  How about you?  For those who celebrate, any plans for cute Thanksgiving themed boxes?  I need some ideas please!

Okay, here is today’s plain ole bento box!

It’s fried brown rice with veggie sausages, onions, and bell peppers.  Topped with green onion slices and chopped egg omelet.  Carrot sticks, three bean salad, fruit nut bar, and a token fishy cut carrot!
