The Laughing Otter- because life’s just too short

So, because I love him…

Posted on: September 28, 2008

I spent all last night looking up new recipes that are easy, fast and efficient, that I can put in Orion’s (and Ennosuke’s) lunch.

I worry less about Ennosuke. He can eat at work. Orion can’t- he has to bag his lunch or pay through the nose for ickie food-court food, like pizza or cheap sandwiches. Not healthy!

So I have discovered recipes for spam fried rice, Omuraisu, chicken katsu. tea marbled eggs, and chicken dumplings, all from Cooking Cute, a bento website I adore.

There’s also recipes for yakionigiri, or fried rice balls, and curry gyoza, both from a site called Lunch in a Box.

Today we’re trying the spam fried rice and a fridge-cleansing yakisoba stir fry.

Now if only I could use stuff before it goes bad! I lost half a box of peaches to mold, a cucumber that got soft before I could get to it, and I still have two more cucumbers, a bag of pluots, a handful of apples, a bag of potatoes and a bunch more peaches.

The peaches, or at least seven of them, are going to a neighbor. I can’t eat them all!

I’ve been thinking of calling my cousin- he’s a chef, I bet he’s got lots of ideas for easy bento fixins.

So I’m off to make some fried rice and pack up a quick lunch for Ennosuke (Orion doesn’t work today) and maybe get a relaxing little bit of time to rest before I make dinner!

Thanks, be safe and have a great day!

Oh! And some other pictures for you:
