bento #60

I had a chance to try out a few recipes from Yum Yum Bento!

- chicken rice ball.  I planned to make some baby chick tamagoyaki to go with them, but that didn't happen
- garlic asparagus
- pork and mushrooms... with ketchup and soy sauce for a sauce.
- bananas, cherry tomatoes, and grapes

The chicken and pork recipes are from p. 21 in Yum Yum Bento... except I they used shrimp instead, and I added the soy sauce.  Hey, I'm not good at following recipes!


  1. I love the sprinkles on the bananas (even though I dont like bananas). The chicken looks so cute though! Excellent job on it.

  2. I love the little chick, adorable!!!

  3. I always change recipes. That's why I don't like baking because you have to follow the recipe so closely.
    Your bento looks really tasty

  4. I don't like baking either! "Recipes are guidelines."

    I was pleased with the cute factor of the chick too! I didn't have corn for the beak so had to substitute with carrot and it still turned out great!
