Rice Ball Bento

This was the Middle of Summer and a cooling bento was amongst us. Rice balls covered the black sesame seed and salt, radishes, grapes, and lettuce.

Pork and Rice Bento

Hello Bento People! I am sure you like a nice lunch. What is better than pork and rice with a side of KimChee? Well, I'm sure you will say "Nothing!"

Cheese and Crackers in my Paris Bento Box

A week or so ago I made this bento with Paris on my mind. What a world we live in. Such evil and such goodness.

I like a lunch like this - a little bit of everything. We have black grapes and dried pears in one box. A mix of cheese, tapenade hummus, purple radishes, and a Bubbies dill pickle in the other. Crackers on the side.

Under The Dome Bento

This special box has a domed roof, so if your bentos are little tall, you don't have to squash them down. It is a single layer with a moveable divider, quite generous in space.

I filled it lots of rice, sliced chicken, cherry tomatoes from the garden, and jewel-cut carrots. And a sesame smile.

Salmon and Dumplings Bento

Leftover take-out from my fave Japanese restaurant makes a bento lunch at my job. Teriyaki salmon with shrimp dumplings and little sauce on the side.

It's funny how happy work can be when lunchtime looks like this!

Tater Tots and Homemade Ketchup Bento

Inspired by Sheri's lettuce wraps, I've sliced roasted pork really thin and wrapped it with Bibb lettuce leaves on one level. Store bought tater tots with homemade ketchup and one half of a tangerine on the other level.

The back story on the ketchup is I read the ingredients on the major ketchup company label and noticed it included High Fructose Corn Syrup. So I found a recipe in my make-it-from-scratch pantry book, and now I have 2 and a half quarts of ketchup in my freezer.

Please don't tell me what's in those tater tots.

Tangerine and Stir Fry Sides Bento

The vegetable stir fry was left over from last night's evening meal. It has lots of walnuts in it which are very good for you. The tangerine is my one a day since we have been gifted with a tree full of picked fruit. Healthy habits to start off 2015.
