Quail eggs

I miss my hometown BANDUNG so much where we can get the freshest quail eggs anytime at all for nothing. Here in Bellingham I will be lucky enough if I can get some "fresh" quail eggs at the Asian market. And it’s not available all the time so whenever I saw some I have to get it. And even so I still get little upset because I pay almost US$2.00 for ten pieces and "at least" 4 of them are rotten, not to mention I always have trouble peeling the skins off so I messed up at least 2 or 3 of them *bad me*. But I am still thankfull because at many other places you'll have no choise but to get the canned one.

Anyway, for today’s bento I packed D some left over fried rice with kamabako, elephant and rabbit quail eggs, teriyaki meatballs w/ zucini, steamed broccoli, cucumber and flower carrots. Same thing for B too but since he didn't really like fried fish cake so I pack him plain white rice. I prepared the apple at night so it turned a little brown in the morning, I ended up replacing it to a new one but too late to take another picture.

I also packed some fruit separately. I cut the persimmons into half to show the beautiful center part, I arranged on top of lettuce bed for color. If only I have some fresh berries I think it would be perfect, but for now peeled oranges would do.

I know what you mean about being homesick, especially when it comes to something you want and can't get! I love your box from what I can see in the corner :) It's super cute!
