Mmmmm, Bacon

Pippy likes bacon if it is cooked to death, so I try to have real bacon bits on hand. Not the most nutritious thing in the world, but it helps to flavor things and at least gets a little protein into her diet. Today's bento is actually pretty well balanced, assuming she eats the pea shoots. Hopefully they will be exotic enough for her to give them a try. I probably should have packed some dressing for it.

The top has onigiri stuffed with some sweet and salty bacon that I cooked up first thing. It is just crispy bacon (get rid of the fat if you are cooking real bacon) cooked with mirin, soy and a little sugar that is cooking until all the liquid is cooked into the bacon then, to make the surface less sticky I covered them with black sesame seeds. On the bottom are fruit kabobs of mango, raspberries and blackberries. They must have been really fresh when I bought them because it has been over a week and they are still really good. On the bottom is a bed of pea shoots.
