MHBB #7

Japanese today:

1. Miso soup with shiitake mushrooms
2. Sweet wild rice rolled sushi — this was a Korean product that you cook 1 part sweet wild rice-3 parts regular rice. It’s a similar rice to the one we use for Filipino puto bumbong — this turned out okay, but I don’t think I’ll be using it again for sushi anytime soon.
3. The sushi was supposed to have some simmered wakame inside, but I started late and couldn’t get it done in time:( — so instead I packed steamed mussels drizzled with a bit of ginger-miso sauce similar to but a bit thinner than this, with some ginger juice added.
4. Daikon and carrot vinegared salad.

+ A banana and Stash White Christmas tea

Lime theme today:

1. Lentil soup, made from a base of the leftover chili last night (the chili recipe will be at LTC — finished off with what else? A squeeze of lime
2. Rice, as usual — I asked him and he wants it in the BIG container LOL
3. Sliced grilled flank steak — marinated overnight in lime juice, garlic and salt and pepper
4. Pan-fried plantain banana slices, glazed with maple syrup and lime juice

+ Gypsy Cold Care Tea

My Husband’s Bento Box: Food Blogging Event For One

Unless anyone wants to join me, that is.

I’m starting MHBB, “My Hubby’s Bento Box“, so I can keep track of what da hubby eats on a daily basis. I got him this for Christmas:

Zojirushi Mr. Bento Stainless-Steel lined Lunch Jar, Silver

because I was getting frustrated with the single Rubbermaid and Tupperware containers we had here that could only hold one or two types of food. He needs a greater variety.

The Zojirushi Bento box has 4 containers, 1 really large one and 3 other smaller ones. I’ll try to get pics in, but I have not mastered the art of Bento box packing, so they won’t look as pretty as Japanese lunches.

Day 1, from the bottom up:

1. “Vietnamese” beef and bean sprout stir-fry, I’ll link to the recipe when I have it posted at N&R
2. the largest container: Banh Pho (again, recipe will be at N&R soon)
3. rice
4. sliced up pear

+ a banana and a packet of green tea
