Oyako Donburi Bentos

Lots of bento pics today! I took the day off yesterday because hubby’s eye was so red that I needed to drive him to the eye doctor. Later I was supposed to pick up the kids at my niece’s softball game and since it was at 5:00 I figured, what a great excuse for making bento! I decided on Oyaku donburi, which is always a hit with the kidlets.

It’s quite easy and very yummy! I chopped all the ingredients much smaller for the kid’s version. For the other half of the bento I defrosted edamame (frozen, pre-cooked from Costco) and shelled them and added mandarin orange slices for them both and added raisins for Buddy. They both look exactly the same, but I took pics of both anyway. Here is the one for Baby Girl:

After the game I came home and cooked for myself. Hubby had eaten a big lunch and declined dinner, so I was able to add onions to this dish for the first time in like, I dunno, 10 years?? Usually I drown it with onion powder. As expected though, he kept going to the pan after I was done and eating food out with his hands. >:( Anyway, here is tomorrow’s bento:

I’d made miso soup to take for lunch too, but then we started watching Lost and by the time I remembered the soup it had been reduced to goo and had been sitting out too long and I didn’t want to risk eating spoiled soup. Fruits are mango and strawberry.

My throat still hurts. In fact, it feels worse. The cotton feeling is gone and instead I feel like I have a marble going down my throat everytime I swallow. *sob* 3 Points meal. 2 for the rice and 1 for the kamaboko.
