Touch of Nectar

{June 15, 2009}   Bento #43 – A new box!

On Saturday, the kidling and I wandered into a dollar store and found this box! I bought two. She picked the pink lid. I picked orange (also in turquoise and green – might go back for more). I like these because I can put both my breakfast and lunch in them and they snap all together.

On Sunday, I had time so I did a bit of lunch prep for the week (and future). I made a HUGE pot of sushi rice and made Spam Musubi. I’ve never made it before, but I’ve always wanted to. It would have been easier if I had a mold, but I made it work.

I also made some onigiri. Those I do have molds for. The larger size I filled with Hickory Smoked Tuna (from a foil packet). A bit dry, but very tasty. Lots of extras got wrapped up and put into the freezer.

Other preperations included boiling eggs,  making jello cups and cleaning/slicing fruits and veggies (watermelon, grapes, radishes and green beans) so I can just grab them and pack.
