(#138) Ayam bakar kecap

Howdy y'all ^_^ Hope you are all enjoyed the festive of Thanksgiving.
We however did not have a Turkey dinner, sadly! turned out the snow has ruined our Thanksgiving plan :( Don't get me wrong, I or I should say my kids enjoy the snow so much. Me? ..mmmm maybe ...but not much, especially when I have so many things to do but get stuck at home because I don't drive on the snow. It's way too scary for me, in that situation I have to depend on my husband.

So here's what happened, a very good friend of ours invited us for a Thanksgiving dinner over at their house, and everything was set. I was supposed to bring some Indonesian croquette and some fruit platters. Done!! I prepared everything and so excited to get together with such great people.

But Thursday morning when I got up and looked out at the window the snow is about 10cm high, it must've been  started early and it keeps getting harder and harder. We were starting to debate weather to go or stay instead.
The thing is, our friends lives almost at the top of the hill. (a very stiffed hill I should say). We do have a 4 wheel drive car but I am a bit scare to go up there in such condition. We called each other back and forth and finally decided to stayed home. Thanks GOD I already marinated the whole chicken that was supposed to be served on the previous day. So I pulled everything at the very last minutes. Despite the fact that we didn't got to enjoy a pumpkin pie but our Thanksgiving dinner was scrumptious and everything was great  ^_^ The boys and hubby had a great time playing in the snow.
These below pictures were taken couple days before Thanksgiving, some snows has melted, but then we got so much more the next day and on Thanksgiving.



Anyway, back to the bento business. I did not take any picture of yesterday's bento. I packed just a regular leftover pizza from Sunday's dinner, something easy so D can eat in the car, because his first ski lesson is started yesterday, so he and bunch for students from his school went up to Mt. Baker in the morning and Oh My!!! he had such a wonderful time skiing, he said he had a blast and skiing is his things now ..LOL ...
I packed the same thing for B by the way.


For today's bento I packed them some leftover ayam bakar kecap, it's Indonesian style grilled chicken with sweet soy sauce, I personally prefer to enjoy it with white rice but they requested some pan roasted potatoes with EVOO, garlic and herb. So I prepared just as they requested ^_^
Other than that I put some baby yellow carrots, petite green beans, baby roma tomato with bear and elephant flag to add some cuteness ^_^ Last but not least is mozzarella cheese.
I add some chicken meat to filled the gap on the chicken cup.


Some watermelon packed separately in my new triangle bento box collection, the other one is in black color (not pictured) :


And in the morning I decided to packed them some yogurt with honey for a snack time (not pictured) ^_^

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone!

Hi Lina! Glad to hear you are ok after all that snow. I was worried about my relatives getting stuck or worse, having an accident. Do you have a recipe for the chicken? it looks so good, and I am trying to figure out how to put drumsticks in my bento.

Sonoma Bento : Thanks a lot for your concern. The snows has all melted right away the next day after Thanksgiving. Thank's God so I can send the boys to school after 1 week stuck at home ..LOL ...
The chicken I packed is not a drumstick, it's a drumette part of a chicken wing, so it snugged perfectly in the box.
