bento #151

I found two bento pictures I hadn't posted here... I think I made these in March.

Here's what I think is in here:
- fried chicken wings? maybe?
- bean sprout and red pepper stir-fry
- slices of kabocha squash and takuwan
- mushroom
- grape skewer and okra!

with an onigiri on the side in the triangle container.

bento #150

I've been craving Japanese food.  Watching RRcherrypie's videos on youtube-- why are they so addicting?-- and I bought a few craft/gummy kits to make during the school year.

That lead to me getting out my bento and manga cookbooks, and of course then I had to cook.  I'm borrowing my parents' deep fryer (they hardly ever use it), so I could make kara-age!

I'm pretty sure I used this box with my last bento... probably because it's new.  And, black goes with everything!
- spinach with sesame seeds
- kara-age
- tamagoyaki (probably the worst-looking ones I've ever made)
- orange pepper and bean sprouts
- rice with some snap peas and carrot flowers

And, I just realized that 150 is a pretty exciting number!
