525&526: rice and beef


Hubby stir fried some really spicy beef last night. I'm thinking it should be great for bento since strongly-flavored foods fare better at room temperature. Muffin gets rice, veggies and some of those huge grapes.


Yay, a bento for me! I have veggies, beef, rice, and some chocolate cookies in the plastic wrap.

I should get myself a box because the one I really like is the red one (above) that I use daily for Muffin. Maybe I should just swipe that. Or get back to the Lock and Lock. I just like a more streamlined, grown-up look for my bento. One reason I packed a bento for myself is to see how the spicy beef is at lunchtime to test my theory of strongly-flavored foods are a little more bland at room temperature.

Hey, if Muffin is going through a growth spurt and needs more food right now anyway, just use that as an excuse to swap boxes with her!

Good idea! I can give her the big Lock and Lock!

Yeah, get a new box, and get me one too. LOL I feel like Scrooge McDuck wringing my hangs in anticipation. LOLOL

Let me know how your beef experiment goes. I think the same thing too, but have never really tested it.

Great. At dinnertime the beef was almost too spicy but cooled off for lunch it's great! Still spicy but okay.

You deserve a box you like as much as any of those you make them for!!!

Well, I don't make myself bento as much. But maybe I would if I had a better box! Yeah. I'll tell myself that.

About Me

I'm usually cranking out two bento a day (sometimes even on weekends), one for 7th-grade Muffin, the other for me.

What I do varies from speed bento to more elaborate "theme" bento, but either way I'm using techniques to get it done quickly, with enough variety to keep it fresh.
