- cucumber slices
- chicken thighs marinated in soy sauce before I cooked them
- flower onigiri
- cherry tomatoes and orange pepper slices

bento #136

Two last left-over kebabs.  If I need bento two days in a row, I'll often cook a bit extra for the next day.

- chicken thigh and pepper kebab
- hog dogs
- carrot sticks and asparagus
- one onigiri

Bento with asparagus in them make me think of spring!

bento #135

I decided to try something a little different this time: kebabs!  Since so many of my bentos feature chicken thighs, I wanted to shake things up a bit.

- chicken kebabs with peppers
- a few carrots, asparagus, and a hot dog flower
- two onigiri (wrapped in plastic so they won't dry out since I freeze some ahead of time)

bento #133

This was one of those days where I took leftovers to school for dinner.

- salad with red peppers; dressing on the side but not in the picture
- ww couscous with chicken; I cooked it with chicken broth, various spices, olives, onions, and peppers.  It was very good!
- a clementine
