I'm making a special 'contest' Bento for Friday to start my holiday weekend. It's ambitious enough to merit its own post once it's done. It involves grilling, lime-fiesta spice, and learning to make homemade Parisian macarons! Keep your fingers crossed!
MONDAY June 27: Vitamin Bento (lots of colors = good stuff!)
Kimono Long bento box
TUESDAY: Using-Up-The-Last-Overs Bento
Bagel Lunch Box, new Shinzi Kato 'Cute Red Hood' single-layer bento box
THURSDAY: Super fast, freeze-ahead, Bento-For-One technique
Shinzi Katoh 70's Poodle Onigiri box
I took two Cheeseburger Croquettes out of the freezer, had the peas portioned out in the refrigerator ahead of time and put them in the box in the morning. I added them to the top of the stir-fry when microwaving for 45-1:30 at lunch. They were great - though the texture is a bit more watery than if they had just been prepared, but that's to be expected. Heat them a few seconds more if that's an issue.
Another portion of Stir-Fry Spaghetti inspired by the recipe in Bento Love. This freezes well and was still just as tasty. It will be a new menu item on my Bento rotation!
