Bento 28

Today Jason and I went to my favorite Japanese Market and we got all kinds of goodies. We had a simple asian dinner with boiled edamame pods, miso soup with nori, brown rice to go into the soup, and kimchi. It was really good but I was still in the mood for asian food. So I came up with these bentos for Jason and I tomorrow. Unfortunately we won’t be able to have lunch together tomorrow, but at least we’ll both have similar meals! I made some carrot and avocado sushi and put a little container of soy sauce for Jason. I filled up a container for myself, plus filled a little hello kitty bowl with pickled ginger and wasabi. Then I added some kimchi to his,and apple pieces and mixed nuts to both. Because my bento box has so much space it took me a while to fill up all the spaces. Our kitchen is a little bare, so it was hard coming up with things that would go together but I think it works out well.

Bento #23 – Cute Snack Bento

Today I just needed a snack bento for lunch, so I decided it would be great time to use my cute cupcake themed bento box. Because I normally need to pack larger lunches, I have rarely used this small box.

I bought some canned mock abalone and felt it was finally time to try it out. I stir fried a few of them with some cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and green onion and added some spicy teriyaki sauce and they turned out really good. I’ll do a full review later, but here’s the bento.hellokitty
On the left there’s the stir fry and on the right there’s baby carrots, tomatoes, a small fig, soy yogurt, and a cute little hello kitty container with raw pumpkin seeds, almonds, and soy nuts.

Here’s the picture of the hello kitty container. Jason got 2 of them for me for my birthday and this was the first time I was able to use it. I think it’s so cute!

I also entered this bento in a competition, click here to check it out.
