bento #163

Time for some curry!  I was watching Japanese videos on youtube, one of them contained curry, and that led to this bento.  Used up my last square of curry, so time to head to the Asian grocery at some point.

- Hello Kitty rice (isn't it nice that rice is white?  Makes it so convenient to make Hello Kitty!)
- curry with pork, carrots, yellow pepper, and onion
- tamagoyaki
- potato salad
- strawberries

bento #162

Wanted to use up some bologna and try making fried rice.  I've never really made it before, which is surprising!

- sweet potatoes, cooked on the skillet and finished with a little honey
- grape skewer
- baby carrots
- yellow peppers with sesame seeds
- friend rice (with egg) topped with bologna flowers, green onion stems

bento #159

Wow, I hadn't realized it had been so long since I had posted a bento!  The funny thing is that I have at least a half dozen in my folder that I hadn't posted, along with the two that I made today.  So, be prepared for a few posts this week.  :)

Back on the soboro bento track...

- Ground beef, pea, and egg soboro over a bed of rice
- sauteed kale
- a few blueberries
- sauteed mushrooms
- sweet potatoes steamed with a little honey

bento #164

It's a good thing I vaguely remember what this bento contained because the photo didn't turn out so great!

- onigiri with furikake around the edges
- pork rolls with spinach and cheddar cheese
- corn sauteed with spinach
- grape skewer
- baby carrots

I try to get as many colors as I can in a bento-- didn't have anything red to include this time.

bento #158

Another soboro bento.  I often make up batches of  bento-type foods, or even make two or three bento at the same time.  But I learned that I do like soboro!

- ground beef and egg soboro with peas.  I tried to make rice flowers stick out a bit, but it was hard to give them definition
- sliced mushrooms and red pepper
- sweet potato, steamed with a little honey
- stir-fried kale
