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

In the right tier, a "rainbow" of:

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.
