Kindergarten bento – Variation attempt (29/Nov/17)

As I am still suffering with my strained back, I didn’t get a chance to go to a grocery store to replenish bento ingredients. This means I need to depend on my stock in the freezer. It’s handy, but I’m running out of the options.

Today I made an attempt to go for a Soboro (chicken crumble) variation. I mixed the Soboro into freshly cooked rice along with wakana sprinkle. It tastes more or less the same as my bi/tri-colour bento, but hopefully the new visual presentation makes a bit of s difference.

Menu: Soboro & wakana sprinkle mixed in rice (with nori seaweed on top), Simmered pumpkin mixed with lightly fried bacon, Boiled egg, Steamed broccoli, Cucumber sticks, Cherry tomato

Apple mousse & strawberries for dessert

Kindergarten bento – Gyu-don / nikudon variation (13/Nov/17)

This is Gyu-don, which is a donburi with beef (gyu-niku in Japanese) slices with some broth and egg. It’s a variation from my mum’s nikudon recipe, the most popular dish in this blog.
