Glut of bento update

I have been a little behind in my bento update. Here are some made in the past week and a half:

Maple honey ham (very strong flavour!) and cucumber in whole wheat bread, grape tomatoes and marble cheddar cheese.

Egg fried rice, edamame and teriyaki shitake and king oyster mushrooms. I was going to put this lunch in the microwave at work so the edamame were put in there frozen as they were.

Edamame, roasted peppers and chicken and bacon pasta salad.

Inarizushi, edamame, onigiri with chicken teriyaki filling and strawberries.

Potato salad, cucumber batons and strawberries.

Rice with bacon furikake, pork and cabbage dumplings, and stir fried peppers and asparagus. The bacon furikake is just finely chopped bacon fried in a pan until crisp. I then placed that on top of the rice and added some regular furikake mix (nori, sesame seeds and bonito flakes). It got the thumbs up from AP, but then I think that's the case for anything with bacon ;)

OOoooooo I love the idea of bacon furikake, one of my favourite furikakes growing up was sukiyaki flavour, but bacon just takes it to another level.

Veggiegirl: Thanks! |

Didally: Bacon makes everything better, right? ;)

Eliza: Heh, I often make myself hungry looking at food blogs!

Jags: Thanks, some tasted better than others! ;)

Noobcook: Aww thanks :)

Marc: Mmm sukiyaki furikake sounds lovely!

Bacon furikake sounds like a fantastic idea! I just bought some new furikake... I have got to try your bacon idea!

Great looking bentos. You got me at "bacon furikake". I thought, "they sell that in a jar? Where?"

But it's homemade, huh? Even better. I'm going to have to ask Annie to make this for me.

Thanks for the inspiration!

I agree with the "everything looks great" comment!
it's hard to find partitioned lock&lock boxes in France. It's possible, but they come in huge sizes....

Nilmandra said...

Chocolate Shavings: Thanks!

Marie: I'm sure you will like it if you like bacon :)

Tigerfish: Usually just whatever we have leftover from dinner and from the fridge/freezer, heh.

Nate n Annie: LOL! Bacon always wins ;)

Mo: That's a shame. I've seen the large ones too and they are definitely too big unless you are packing for more than one person or very bulky items like salads. Hope you find something suitable soon.
