I made some fried rice! So that's what I had for lunch, instead of eating it at Uni though I had two classes cancel so I was able to eat it at home, which means I could warm it up! Anyway this bento contains:
I decided to do something a little different since I had some ground chicken. I made a rice burger! It was really good. I didn't have a bento box to really fit it in so I used my smallest bento and just packed sides that I could munch on. Anyway this bento contains:
Rice Burger: Teriyaki Chicken Patty, Rice and Green Onion "Bun", Nori
New bento. With being sick I haven't been eating right still. Food just isn't as appealing when you're so stressed and sick that it makes you worse. I packed a small one, but it was full of flavor at least. This bento contains:
Sautéed Herb Potatoes: Potato sautéed in oil and butter with rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes Broccoli Corn on the Cob: Butter and Salt Honeydew Melon Cherry Tomato Picks for Corn
Beat the eggs on high until they're fluffy. Add sugar (slowly) until that gets fluffy too. Mix baking powder and flour, then mix those into the egg+sugar mix. Heat the milk on a stove until it nears simmering, then steep the ceylon for 4-5 minutes. Add butter to milk and mix together. Don't allow the mixture to actually start boiling. Add hot milk to the batter (slowly) and beat until it's combined. Don't overbeat, or you will have chewy cake instead of fluffy. Bake at 350 degrees F. About 18 minutes for cupcakes, 30-35 minutes for a cake.
While the cake is baking, make the whipped cream. Uh... basically just take the heavy whipping cream and beat it on high with like an eggbeater or something until it becomes whipped cream. I like to go a little longer than necessary (but not as far as the butter stage) so that the texture is a little thicker and it resembles clotted cream. (Or you could also make clotted cream, but that's a different show).
Let the cupcakes cool, then pipe the cream and drizzle a light honey on top.
Sushi bento with crab meat, avocado, and carrot. There is teriyaki chicken, broccoli, and rice in the thermos. It's leftovers, so it isn't worth showing, haha.
I won this bento set from a giveaway! I have such bad luck so I was so surprised and happy to receive this set, even though it has some small defects (which is why this set was given away). I wish the thermos worked, though. It doesn't retain heat because the seal is too loose.
What you see here is slightly smoked and fried salmon on a bed of fresh field salad, accompanied by cherry tomatoes, steamed carrots and fried tofu. And what I also see, is that my pear looks suspiciously white in this picture.
I got the fried tofu recipe from the lovely Thanks again! ^^ 14.03.2012
i was out of greens, which is why i lined this bento with very thin zucchini slices. i first made a quick ratatouille: sauté zucchini, eggplant, onion in a little bit of oil, add canned tomatoes and break them up a little. season to taste w/salt, fresh herbs of choice and pepper; put this onto the zucchini slices, covered it with a brown/wild rice mix and added a cucumber panda and some cute panda picks. the top tier has celery and cucumber bamboo, black sesame and nigella seeds for sprinkling onto the rice and a green tea mochi.
another bento box by me - i tried my onigiri mold for the first time. light is bad as usual, because i have to prepare these at night so i can take them with me the next morning. this one took me maybe 15 minutes.
in there are two brown rice onigiri filled with miso paste with nori faces and wrapped in spinach leaves, sliced zucchini, chopped bell pepper, flower-cut kiwifruit and a zucchini star on romaine leaf.
(i first lined the box with chard leaf, then put in the black sesame rice kitty*, spread plain brown rice around her, added the nori details, then moved to the top tier, which i lined with chard, too. then i wrapped the red kimchi onigiri* partly in chard leaf, too, placed it on top of the chard, stuck in a panda pick, added some purple homemade kraut, a sakura made from the chard stem and a flower-cut pickle.
*brown rice mixed with ground black sesame. *brown rice mixed with kimchi juice and filled with cut up kimchi.)
