A couple of new bentos

It's been a long while since I've posted a bento, but here are two I've made recently. Hopefully, I'll be more organized and back to making bentos regularly soon.

Top: carnitas "sandwich" and sausage

Bottom: cherries and blackberries

Top: veggie curry, lamb, carnitas, and pickles

Bottom: mac and cheese with peas and bacon bits

Today's Bento

Top: noodles, teriyaki stir-fry, and there's ponzu in Pokémon's head

Bottom: cabbage and salsa, cheese, greens miniera

Cabbage and salsa is one of those things I picked up from my dad. He has a number of interesting food preferences left over from the days when he lost something like 40+ pounds (I'm not sure exactly how much since I was little when he started his weight loss). One of those is shredded cabbage with salsa. I've modified it by sautéing the cabbage first, but it still keeps the heart of this odd combo that I've grown to like.

yesterday's bento

Top: greens miniera and rice

Bottom: radishes, teriyaki meatballs, sautéed cabbage, sautéed carrots

Top: Strawberries, radishes (they are the braised ones again - tucked in with the strawberries), goat cheese, carrots, and cabbage, meatballs, and marinara.

Bottom: Rice, avocado, greens miniera, and regular greens.

I have one more day of regular greens, which is about all I can take of them. I like the greens miniera better, which is a good thing since I have a ton left. I am all done with the strawberries, and to tell the truth, I am surprised they made it this long. I really like strawberries, and they usually start to go before this, anyway.

Not pictured: two teriyaki meatballs that I forgot to fit into the top compartment (yes, there was room).

It was really really yummy.
