BENTO #152

Since school commenced, #2 has been staying back at least 3-4 times a week. Since I only pack one Bento box for her, I tend to pack some rice so that the meal is substantial enough until tea time when she gets back.

This morning, I chopped and mixed up some Lollo Rosa, Basil leaves, tomatoes and ham. Then, I made a quick dressing with Olive oil, Balsamic vinegar, freshly ground black pepper and some salt. #2 had a plate full for breakfast before she left for school!

I packed the vegetable and ham combination into the smaller top box although I thought of packing it into the bigger bottom box. I realized that there was vinegar in the dressing and so refrained from doing that. I could only fit half an orange into the balance space.

I fried some chicken karaage this morning. I had prepared and coated the chicken bits in Katakuriko last night and that saved me some time. I moulded some rice and topped them with my favorite furikake.

This Bento box has kind of become a permanent feature because #2 complained about some spillage from the other plastic boxes. This box was a gift to me by Emily and is almost spill proof! I find that this Bento box size is just perfect and it has a matching bag which is not childish, which #2 is willing to bring to school.
