For your amusement, fresh from a hard boil, maintaining/massaging its new shape till it cools, I've heard you can mold a quail egg into a cube, triangle, etc.

My first Tamagoyaki and I tried out the Plum Vinegar on the spinach. This was so fast...30 minutes total, just because I wasn't used to the egg dish.

Princess Fiona, they look just beautiful! And so healthy too. I am avidly searching out recipes so that I can get started on this.

Thanks, Leanne! Health reasons are why I started looking into Bento, portion control is another good reason! It is chock full and only 600 calories, making everything fresh I control the sodium and fat content, too!

Umesu <sp> is one of my favorite things to put on broccoli (in the summer when it's hot, I'll splash some in a glass of ice water and drink it...).

Here is what I cobbled together for tomorrow. I started to make Sesame Noodles but had no sesame oil. Instead, I used chili oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and scallions.

Looks very good! Tonight, I'm going to play with making Instant Miso soup, pre-saute' some bok choy, grape tomatoes, green onions and a chili pepper to add to it tomorrow. Will add some turkey from the other night. I'll be loading it into my Mr. Bento.

Steamed some granny smith apples. Nothing added, for a dessert.

I love Miso soup and bok choy, but have never made either. Apples are also terrific! I cannot wait to hear how they turn out for you! Greek yogurt is making a great dessert option for me. I also like the sugar-free chocolate pudding as a change as well.

It's really fun to think about putting lunch together. I'm so glad that you suggested this.
