So I have managed to pack a different Bento each day this week, and at the same time also add a little more to my freezer stash for future lunches.
I found a picture of Mondays very yummy but very ugly lunch but I didn't get a picture of Thursday's lunch which was not only tasty but looked really nice. I guess you will just have to believe me. ^^

Monday
Mabo Doufu & Strawberries and Kiwi Fruit



I really really love this dish,My version of it is made of Pork Mince, Tofu, Korean hot bean paste, Green Onions, Garlic, Ginger, Cooking Sake etc
Cook it all up in a wok and serve hot on a bed of steamed rice.

Tuesday
Teriyaki Chicken & Strawberries w/- Pears



Teriyaki Chicken - Skinless thigh meat, browned then I add the Soy, Sake, Mirin & Honey and let it reduce to a nice yummy glaze on the meat. I have Chinese cabbage and very sweet mini capsicums with this as well as steamed rice and grape tomatoes.

Wednesday
Mini Hamburger Patties in a Honey BBQ sauce & Pear and Tangelo Halves (Not Pictured)



Mini hamburger Patties in Honey BBQ Sauce, As the name suggest these are mini patties made from a mix of been and pork mince, breadcrumbs and egg. I cook them first them glaze them in the honey BBQ sauce which is just standard BBQ sauce with a dollop of honey added to it. I paired this with my Chinese cabbage, Broccoli, Asparagus, Steamed rice and some grape tomatoes. Under the lid is some chocolate coated biscuit thingers.

Thursday
No Picture - Stir fryed sesame beef and mushroom with spinach and capsicum, Steamed rice, grape tomatoes. Half an orange and 2 sticks of celery.

Friday
Omurice
Its Friday YAY!!!
I decided to go out today to celebrate a week of bento's.



I have never tried to make Omurice before but Maki at Just Bento assures us its easy so I thought I would give it a try and I followed her instructions and it worked and it looks great and tastes great too!!
The recipe is on her site do a search for Omurice and it will come up :)



I hope you all have a had a great week and I will try and catch up with my F-list over the weekend, I haven't turned my home pc on since Tuesday....

It looks so delicious and tasty!
Do you make large meals and save parts of the meals for your bento, or do you make small servings just for your bento??

I make small servings just for my bento.
Sometimes I will cook a little extra and store it in the freezer for a future Bento, I do this with a lot of meats. The seasame and Mushroom Beef I froze half of it.
I have 2 smalls aucepans and a small frying pan which are just the right size for one person and I use these for making my bentos.

hehe I am actually getting up an hour later than I used to three weeks, but thats only because my work hours changed x_X but yera I get up about 6am and manage to get dressed, drink two cups of coffee, make my lunch, nuke a frozen onigiri for breakfast and be out the door by 7.20am so I think thats pretty good time.
