Today's bento is brought to you by last nights dinner. We had chicken teriyaki last night, so I packed that for her lunch since we are running low on food stuffs, and pretty much out of anything she will actually eat. I do not expect her to eat it all today, but I am sure that at least the rice and orange will get eaten. Fortunately my produce box will be in today, and hopefully I can do a little grocery shopping today or tomorrow. The weather is lovely, so I may do some baking today for the next week.
On the top is rice, with an umeboshi (pickled plum) that has been pitted and placed in the middle. On the bottom is a tangelo that has been segmented for easy eating and a cup with the teriyaki in it. There is also another jello shooter and tucked in the front a bottle with some of the teriyaki sauce in it to flavor the rice a bit.
I have taken to making batches of rice during the day now that I am home. Also, I learned that even if your rice says not to rinse it, rinse it anyway. Short grained rice is meant to be sticky, but not pasty. It takes a little extra time, but it is worth it. Now, if I could only find my 1/4 cup measure...
