In Danish we have a saying that something is "neither fish nor fowl" and I guess it fits this bento, seeing as the "fish" is made out of chicken *L*

When I saw that Kroger had some new food like lotus root and purple potatoes, I thought "Cool!" When I saw that they had no prices, I thought "Lame." When the produce clerk had no idea how much the purple potatoes were, I thought "Quite lame." When I went to the self-checkout and they were not in the system I thought "totally lame." When she shrugged and gave me two pounds for 79 cents I thought, "Cool!'
When I went back the next time and found out those potatoes are actually $2.99 a pound... LAME.

In the morning, I reheated the rice in the microwave (just 1 minute to soften them up, as rice gets hard and clumpy in the fridge), portioned them into the bento boxes and left them to cool down. In the mean time, I stir fried the asparagus, dished them out, followed by the pork in the same pan. A couple of cherry tomatoes added colour.
Recipe for shogayaki is posted on Soy and Pepper.

I'll try not to be away so long again!
If you have the cookbook the recipe is on page 58.
The ingredient list for the Soboro calls for Teriyaki sauce in the cooking instructions on page 59 it say to add the soy sauce which isn't on the ingredient list. So is it Teriyaki or Soy sauce that I should be using?
First, look at my adorable water bottle! My husband got it for me for my birthday (in November) and this was the first time I had a chance to use it.
Under the lid of the bento, Dulce de Leche Girl Scout cookies (apparently nobody else in my playgroup likes these but yum yum I DO). In the top half, cheddar cheese, a tofu pup, and macaroni and cheese (cold). Bottom half, pita bread surrounding a silicone cup of avocado, grape tomatoes, and an avocado-stuffed onigiri. You can't see it but there's a spoon for the avocado in there.
In the sidecar/sandwich box, a sunflower-seed butter and jelly sandwich cut in a cute shape surrounded by Quaker Quakes (cheddar).
I think next time I'll use my Laptop Lunchbox again - I love it and I miss it! But using the more traditional looking box is a lot of fun too, and I have two other boxes I haven't used yet...
I'd planned a "kid friendly" version of the one I had with me today (#514) but since she has no means of heating her bento, plain rice aren't really an option. They're rather uninteresting after a night in the fridge. So I decided on potato salad as a substitute. And tempura praws because she doesn't like peanuts. Nor is she overly fond of oyster Sauce-cooked vegetables, so I decided to tempura-fry some broccoli because she LOVES that.
And then only when I was packing it all did it dawn on me that because almost everything was deep fried.. it was all the same colour of brown :(
So.. although there's actually a nice variation of things in this one, it all looks rather bland and brown. Oh well. Hopefully she'll value the effort anyway :)
