Long time no bento! No new posts even. That one I have to apologize for, but the past few days have just been too busy. Mostly, I’ve been waking up with little extra time to pack lunch, so I’ve been subsisting on store bought meals. I was missing bento badly though, so I made it a point to wake up early yesterday to prepare one.
One song was playing in my mind as I was doing this lunch, “When the Moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s Amoreeee~~~” Heehee. Appropriate, isn’t it?
This bento is prepared for the Moon challenge at Bento Challenge.
â€¢ Steamed rice with a Lumpiang Shanghai fence. A nori cat, looking up at a Babybel Moon adorns the rice.
â€¢ Bean sprouts sauteed in oyster sauce.
â€¢ Sweet Chili Sauce
â€¢ Steamed Asparagus
â€¢ More Lumpiang Shanghai. (recipe here)
Stoopid me, I actually left this bento at home. Fortunately, it was still good when I got home, all it needed was a quick nuke in the microwave. Quite serendipitous actually, because I was too tired and cold (got drenched in a downpour) to cook dinner. I guess luck can spring from misfortune too.
