(# 237) Smoked salmon sandwich

Nothing's special for tomorrow's bento, hubby worked late on Wednesday so I fixed the boys some simple Indonesian dinner and we have no leftovers. So I prepared some sandwiches for tomorrow's lunch.

For the sandwich I use oat bread, smeared with honey mustard and home-made smoked salmon plus lettuce, no tomatoes *my son requested to omit the tomatoes so it wont be slippery he said * :P

Inside the upper tier are some home-made hummus with baby carrots packed in a separated lil containers, next to it are some heirloom tomatoes, black olives, sliced apples dusted with cinnamon and fresh fig.

(# 232) Roasted Chicken, galaxy bento

Hello my bento pals,
I hope you are all having a great weekend.

We went to Anacortes today and stopped by the farmers market on the way home, I got some rainbow carrots, cauliflower, sweet corn, blue berries and so on and so on, what FUN!

For tomorrow's bento I prepared some leftovers roasted chicken, some sauted potatoes and sweet peppers, sweet corn, rainbow carrots (too bad the color isn't showing :( ...) but they are orange, yellow and purple.

I realized everything was too pale in colors so I put some Italian parsley. Was thinking on steaming some broccoli but I do not want to waste, so it is what it is :P
I also made a star, moon, space ship and some other galaxy stuff from cheese, I hope it won't be melted by lunch time :D
There are also some blue berries packed separately, and some yoghurt for snack time.

(# 228) Beef Bulgogi Gimbab Bento

What's up with me and Korean food lately? almost all of the new bento posts are contains Korean food.
We loooovee Korean food :) it's simple, easy to prepare yet so scrumptious according to my kids :P and I don't blame them ....

For tomorrow's lunch I prepared some beef bulgogi gimbab/kimbap with ebi furay, I made some ebi furay from scratch and I must say I am so happy with the result, hubby said he can just eat the whole plate ...
The ebi furay I made *however* is not the kind that using panko bread, but regular tempura batter, so maybe I should mention shrimp tempura instead? well, I can careless about the name this time :P
