Left over minced pork, some eggs and French beans made a delicious donburi.

Snack Bento

This was a snack bento, prepared in a jiffy. In it is a "kai tan kow" (steam egg cake - a la Chinese style), some grapes and papaya cubes.

Onigiri on the go

Today, #2 travels down south with a college mate and several college staff. Apparently there are scholarship interviews taking place in two states and assistance is required.

#2 still struggles with her braces and asked that I make some Onigiri for her to take along just in case.

The large triangle ones are filled with Salmon and Avocado.
The barrels are mixed with furikake - a variety of beef and chicken.

The top box was packed with a croissant filled with Avocado, Mayo and Salmon.

The croissant cut into three pieces and packed in cling wrap.

A close up of the Onigiri.

Bento 302

I packed this box from left overs, one of those random days when a quick lunch bento was necessary.

This bento was mine and I had rice, some left over minced pork, vegetables and bits of waxed meat.

I really enjoyed it.

Mix the above with pork or beef or both. Add an egg if necessary.

Wrap in ready made wrappers or home made ones.
