Wasabi Salmon (264)

I have two lunches to post today as yesterday I had a brain fart and simply didn’t post my lunch! D:

I’m not a big fan of this one to be honest. I didn’t have much food to use so I ended up making little green musubis with furikake mixed in, then added some cut slices of pineapple sausage with carrot sticks in the middle of them. There’s chow fun leftover from eating Panda’s for dinner, then four kiwis off to the side.

I’ve got extra of the little “Petit” onigiri molds if anyone wants them. It’ll be $3 per set and I’ll send this First Class mail, so shipping should be pretty cheap. Pic here:

You can press three little onigiri at a time. The kiddies absolutely loved them! I had the green rice leftover from Saturday when I meant to make green Spam musubis for the UH homecoming game, but then I decided to take a nap instead!

Today’s box is a green version of the one I used in the bento lunch pictured above:

It comes with the divider inside! This one will be $3. Comment if you want it! I might still have that other green one as the person who originally commented never replied to my email. I’ll give her one more day!

I went to the Marukai Membership Store on Dillingham yesterday to look for bento items, but found almost nothing of interest. The 99 cent store on Ward is still the best place for now. While there though, I did buy a head of green leaf lettuce, which I’ve now decided that I LOVE for outside garnish.

In this lunch I have some green rice with ume, then a piece of Wasabi Furikake Salmon, broccoli, a grape tomato (stole from Mr. Pikko’s Costco spinach salad), baby carrots, and takuan flowers. I put some Catalina Free salad dressing into the little green container to “convert” the greens into a nice salad, which was so fun! I took the rice, salmon, and broccoli out and heated it up in a ceramic bowl I keep here at work. Then I tore up the garnish lettuce, poured the dressing on, and I had a salad with tomatoes and carrots! It was great! ^_^ I’ll have to do this “convertable salad” thing more often. It worked out quite nicely.

  • I’d love the petit onigiri molds! I don’t have a triangle shape, just a cute star/heart/bear one.

    Let me know if the previous Hello Kitty commenter backs out, I like that box!

  • Hi there,

    I love your blog. I live in OC, CA, but my husband’s family are all from Oahu. Anyway, I noticed you’ve been mentioning that you’re into survival prepardness now and I wanted to let you know about my site, which is new, but I’m planning on having lots of new info. Check it out, it’s especially for women.

    Take care!

  • I noticed your lunch posted on the livejournal community and had the very same thought about the lettuce garnish – I love it! It’s so fresh and beautiful and really gives a finished look – nicely done!

  • The outside garnish looks so awesome~ I’ve used garnishes like that to place nuggets or other veggies on them, but never thought about using it all the way around. Thanks for the idea! 😀

    As for the other green one (is it the one that says cute style?) I’m up for it~ I wanted to post for that one but someone had claimed it first ><;

  • I like the recycled chow fun.

  • Deena T.

    If it’s not already taken, I’m interested in the box. Couldn’t find any at 99cent store this weekend.

  • Liann M.

    If you have an extra green hello kitty box I would like it also.

  • I’m so new to bento making but your site is such an inspiration! I’m going to get me one of those onigiri making kits. It’ll make life easier and more fun for sure! Thanks

  • Viv M

    I want it!

    You never really replied to my other comment, so I was uncertain. But as I’m starting my own mini-bento-empire, I’d take the Petit Mold, and … both bento boxes!?

    *le gasp*

    You can contact me at my email, which I had to supply, so you should know it. Please get in touch soon!

    If you’ve not already gotten rid of it, I’m interested in the onigiri moulds.
