The Extremely Last Minute, “What am I Going To Make?” Bento

30 Nov

Bunny Egg and Trader Joe's Onigiri

Thanksgiving weekend came and went in a flash.  The past few days I made soup bentos with leftover food (I’ll post those tomorrow).  I was extremely happy to CLEAN out our refrigerator last night because I swear I couldn’t fit another thing in there.  But much to my dismay, I woke up this morning in a panic that I didn’t have anything to make a bento.

All the leftovers were gone and we used most of the staples over the weekend.  I sat there for about 15 minutes, waiting for my coffee to kick in, and wondered what I was going to do.  No sandwich because I had no cheese and I ran out of soy nut butter.  I had no butter, because we used it all during the weekend. I didn’t have rice made and didn’t have time to make rice.  Oh my goodness…. what am I going to do? I honestly wondered if I was going to have to run to Togo’s for Ms. Little Bubbles lunch.

Thankfully I found a Trader Joe’s frozen onigiri in the freezer, and saw that I had eggs.  So, I hard boiled the eggs, threw them in a mold to at least make them cute, cut some apples and carrots and called it a morning.  Phew… I survived another close call.  🙂  BTW, I steamed the carrots in my cute bear silicon microwave steamer.

The bento box I used is a “new” box.  I’ve had it for a year, but never used it before today.  It’s a REALLY cool box.  It’s called Gel-Cool.  You freeze the top the night before and voila… your bento is kept cool for hours.
