Bento # 575

My kid's lunch for Monday. Not the most inspired. I think I'll regard it as "Modern Art" - but it was late and I was out of ideas.
A cool thing: I found fussili based 100% on rice. So now my kid can have rice AND pasta in one go *L* They're meant for gluten intolerant people of course, but I thought it was fun since I'm mostly substituting the traditional rice with pasta. And now.. I'm substituting rice with ... rice.

(no subject)

White tier: Teriyaki steak cut into pieces on a bed of brown rice, and wakame in sumiso. Om nom nom.
Pink tier: Homegrown apple dipped in chocolate. This was a good idea at the time, but it got a little messy, and didn't taste as good as the chocolate strawberries (duh!). But, as today is an organic chemistry exam, I thought it was worth a little extra effort. ^^ Next time though, strawberries go with chocolate, and apples go with honey.

BBQ Bento

Another leftovers bento.

Contents: Barbecue chicken, cottage cheese, garlic dill pickles, a sad little faceless cheese bear, and a fishy of garlic salt.

I'm more of a cottage cheese and peaches girl, but the Hubs likes his savory with garlic salt.

Three by three

Three bits of brocolli, three thai dim sum, three strawberries and... well that's as far as it went but the rest is some garlic and herb cream cheese, a babybel and under that in a little ziplock bag are some rivita and a soy panda hiding in there too.  A nice light lunch for tomorrow as it's so muggy here... well, for northern England it is anyway!!

Bento # 576

It's not often I use this box, because it's so large. Not only is it 900 ml, which is huge, but it's also very deep and thus hard to arrange things in a pretty fashion in it. But since today's bento was partially leftovers (the potato gratin) and I had some watermelon which had reached the "eat NOW"-date I decided to use some of the space for that. Watermelon is.. well.. mostly water and as such not very filling, except in the box.

Choo-choo! Bento #44

Fried rice again!? I did not make the rice this time though. My mom bought it for me from a restaurant, making this a very quick and easy bento to throw together :)

I am using this new Liberty Men's Lunch Box that I got from FIT Japanese Store. It holds 1000 ml! Perfect for my husband!

Details and contents here.
