No Brown Apples in my Bento

6 Aug

This was a bento I did earlier in the week and didn’t have a chance to upload it.  I think there is a total of three gyoza bentos this past week!  Yes, I made a lot of gyoza.  For this one, I made yaki soba noodles to go with the gyoza.  I purchased the yaki soba from a Japanese grocery store in the area, then added peas, kamaboko and hot dogs.  For the fruit, I put strawberries and apples.  To keep the apples from going brown, I dipped them in salt water. I didn’t leave them in there too long as I didn’t want it to get salty.  I’ve tried lemon juice in the past, but I didn’t like the taste of the apples after I put the juice on it.

Pandas love Meatloaf

Mmmmm... Pandas Loves Meatloaf


I know, I know…. Meatloaf bento??? I was uninspired for dinner last night and we ended up with meatloaf. However, it didn’t cook in time so we had to eat leftovers. Go figure. 🙂

Bentos definitely don’t need to be Japanese food only, and this proves that. However, rice is a staple in my house, so the bento has rice instead of mashed potatoes. 🙂
