Hot Dogs and Rice

As I started to write this entry, I realized how weird hot dogs and rice may seem to some people.  I’m Japanese and it’s normal for me to eat rice with everything.  Don’t laugh, I’ve even been known to eat it with my spaghetti.  🙂

I’ve been busy with work lately, and haven’t had time to think of cute fancy bentos, so Ms. Little Bubbles has been getting fast and dirty bentos.  This bento took me less than ten minutes.  I made the rice and hot dogs the night before and just had to cut the carrots and slice the strawberries in the morning.  The all beef hot dogs were sauteed in shoyu (soy sauce) and mirin.  I would have added onions, but Ms. Bubbles doesn’t like onions.

    I am American born and bred but I love rice with everything, including hot dogs! I’ve never tried sauteeing hot dogs in shoyu and mirin though, I bet that would be delicious – thank you for the idea, I will try it for lunch today 😀
