Made weird but tasty fusion fried rice this morning with basmati rice, Korean chogochujang sauce, homemade smoked pork, peas, takuan, egg, green onions and sesame seeds. We all got that today, with the face on my son’s bento eliciting a happy, “Kitty!” from him. This is also the inaugural use of my son’s Thomas the Tank Engine 270ml bento box, which thrills him no end (“choo choo train!”).
- kitty face made of turkey lunchmeat, eyes/nose = cheese, whiskers = nori
- watermelon and nectarines
My husband’s lunch (above) adds stir-fried kale with garlic and red wine vinegar, and mine (below) adds bananas and grapes in my new Urara dragonfly box that I picked up for US$1.50!
