My very first use of my only Hello Kitty bento which includes the adorable Kitty-chan in strawberry-milk pink and sparkles. The bento came with a matching triangle onigiri press.

Green peas, baby carrots (raw), octodogs (little smokies), onigiri and a couple of Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses!

I’ve decided to start counting my bento all over again in an attempt to get back into the habit of blogging them – let’s hope it sticks this time!

Baked chicken, broccoli and rice with stir fried peppers, sausage crabs and meatballs.

I had such a good day and am in the best mood. I’ve gotten almost all of my work done, the doggy’s been out multiple times which means I got a nice walk away from my computer. I’m drinking iced tea right this minute. Life is sweet.

Granted, this is only a momentary lapse in horrible. It was brought on by my mother being out of my life for a day and taking her hubby with her, which means I’m free to clean, work and so forth without hearing my name hollered from downstairs eighty times a day, lol! She’s still angry with me because I didn’t make a big deal when she asked what we would be doing for Thanksgiving dinner. Honestly, I’m not a big Thanksgiving fan – for the most part I just love the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and try to watch every year, which she doesn’t like because it cuts into my cooking-for-mom time.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I do actually need to start preparing for that. I know I do, but I’ve been procrastinating! My big issue is that mom and hubby like things just so – fatty, salty and generally not very tasty. They put butter in rice…. in rice! And not just any rice, but my beautiful short grain sushi rice. I love that rice, my gorgeous Wolfgang Puck 5 cup does an amazing job on it, I think it’s my all time favorite piece of cookware and I don’t know what I’d do without it. So I spend a small fortune importing this rice, I wash it several times, soak it for 20 minutes then cook it until it’s just right and what do they do? Put butter on it! I swear they’d put gravy on it if I turned my back for two seconds, lol!

Speaking of rice, maybe a wild rice and mushroom stuffing would be a treat? I don’t know if they’d like it, though, but I think Imouto chan will be happy with it. Now, how can keep my mother from literally stuffing it into the turkey?

Cinnamon-Ginger Shrimp Bento

First bento photo in awhile, I’ve been super busy with the move and work. We’ve got ginger cinnamon shrimp stir fry with broccoli, peppers and carrots. A little pancake sandwich shaped like a gingerbread man, some holiday candies, rice and a nice tamagoyaki slice!

Cheap and Delicious SPAM Fried Rice

Even though it’s brutally hot and humid, our meal for today is a delicimous concoction that vaguely resembles fried rice. If you don’t like SPAM, I don’t understand your language, because this is a dream to make.

Granted, we don’t have the money for SPAM so we had to get the half-priced Luncheon Meat (any generic discount SPAM or canned ham will do in a pinch!) we so affectionately refer to as Lint Loaf in our house. It’s really no comparison to SPAM, but it’s fairly good and it works well in this recipe!

Heat up your pan or wok to medium on a gas range and melt a tablespoon of real butter. Toss in the following:

1/2 Small White Onion – chopped
1 Clove Garlic – crushed

Saute until the onion starts to get transparent, then pour in:

1/2 C of filtered water (necessary out here in the boonies)
1.2 Bag of Frozen Peas
1 Packet Ramen Noodle Seasoning (your flavor choice)
2 tsp. Shoyu / Soy Sauce
1/2 Can of Lint Loaf / SPAM – Cubed

Stir gently, if you stir too hard the SPAM will become mushy and fall apart. Heat for 2-3 minutes.

Fold in:

3 C of Cooked Rice

Until thoroughly coated. Scoop out into a bowl and enjoy! I personally like mine with a liberal shake or two of white pepper and a couple of make-shift spring rolls. Don’t forget the green chai tea!
