I love her recipes made just for Bento...and Max's Bentos are great. The last meatball one is very tasty.

Amazon and I have had a long time relationship...

It's an awesome website for bentos.

Amazon is an easy one to have those multi-year r/ships with.

yesterday's bento...

1. enoki mushroom, leek & rice vermicelli soup
2. Filipino pancit noodles
3. kinpira gobo, baked ham slices, dill pickle spear
4. celery & daikon with peanut butter
5. hot green tea

Soup is chicken & pork base with a couple drops of chilli infused sesame oil. There are always scraps of broken rice vermicelli in the bottom of a bag that's good filler for bento soups. The pancit is traditional chinese sausage & cabbage, with a few other veggies. Gobo is burdock root. Here's the wiki: Arctium lappa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It's a bit tough and fibrous. Braising in soy sauce and mirin with carrots is a very common tsukemono dish; I often have a batch sitting in the frig.

A thing of beauty Spork! I love Filipino pancit, the ladies here treat us alot with their home cooking. They like feeding me because I will try anything they cook. At least try it and they know what they shouldn't tell me when I ask for a recipe.

Looks wonderful spork!

I love the enoki mushroom soup. In fact I always like enoki mushroom no matter how it's cooked.

Pancit is the basic stir-fried noodles of the Philippines, and every home kitchen will have their own recipe. Much like Japan's yakisoba. I bought a bag of the thicker type of pancit egg noodles in the refrigerated section of my local Asian market. Chinese sausage slices and cabbage are the most common, but any stir-fry ingredient is good. I think I added carrots sliced like the sausages and thin green pepper sliced like the cabbages. Sauce is variable, but usually contains soy sauce. I added oyster sauce and dash of worcestershire. The thing that distinguishes pancit is that it's almost always finished with the requisite tartness of Filipino cuisine, usually vinegar. I used lemon juice. I like it cold, as well as hot.

The enoki mushrooms look just like rice noodles. I think I'll play around with that combination some more...

I took a photo of raw gobo root, too.

No pictures today but I did pack two lettuce rolled chicken salad snacks (must work on rolling, it will be a mess to eat!) low calorie dark chocolate mousse with strawberries, pretzel crackers and a wedge of laughing cow herb and garlic cheese (for snack) and a hard boiled egg with 1 slice whole wheat bread for my breakfast. My other snack will be all the medicine I am taking for my bronchitis I love my bento box, I have plans for turkey chili one day, and I am already looking forward to it.

I've been sick for several days. Some kind of tummy bug. I go between feeling better and feeling not-so-great again. I need to consider something for lunch, but nothing sounds great at this moment. :(
