Shoyu Chicken Bento (150)

Sorry for the late posting, I’ve hit 9,999 posts on Allakhazam and I’ve been busy prepping what I’m revealing for my 10k ding. Today I had a three tier bento but don’t let the pictures deceive you, this box is actually really small, maybe 5 inches long or less. It was a plain box that I got at Marukai this summer during E3 and I added a sticker to make it a little cuter.

Shoyu Chicken Bento

This is shoyu chicken made by my MIL with some white rice decorated with mixed veggies. If you’re thinking to yourself, “Geez I wonder if she placed those vegetables into her bento one by one”, the answer is, “Yes, I did”.

I used chopsticks. In Allakhazam IRC yesterday we were all laughing at this guy who doesn’t know how to use chopsticks. All in good fun, but I just wanted to mention how awesome chopsticks are. I even eat spaghetti with chopsticks, a habit I picked up from my friend Janis.

Kim Chee Crab and Avocado

I packed more kim chee crab and avocado without lettuce. I found after forgetting the veggies that it’s actually not too bad without it, especially if I don’t have room in the box. I bought the avocado at Foodland on Sunday and I’m very proud to say that I chose perfectly. The next morning, when I cut it open, it was beautiful and the best possible texture for slicing. It looks exactly the same as yesterday’s just with no tomatoes.

My tomato garden died while I was in Anaheim. Mr. Pikko claims, “Hey! I watered them!” but I have my doubts. The plants are all brown and I think they’re unrecoverable. Not too bad though, I must have gotten like 200 tomatoes out of those plants and now I have the pot space to grow edamame!! Weeeee!

Pomegranate Seeds

Finally, I had pomegranate seeds for dessert.

Actually, I lied, I had some godly pumpkin pie for dessert. George at work brought by some pieces of this pumpkin pie that his wife made and holy omg it was divine. I asked for the recipe and hopefully I’ll have that in my grubby little pumpkin pie loving hands soon. Yum yum!

    I’m sorry about your tomato plants, but no worries. This is Hawaii – they’ll come back if you plant some more seeds. =)

    Aww, poor tomato plants. ;_; But yeay, edamame! I tried to grow edamame over this past summer… I got it to grow new beans, and then… it started to die on me… and I couldn’t figure out why. ;_; I gave up on it when it was mostly brown. If your turn out better, tell me what you did! ^^
