The first bento of the new year! The chicken and rice soup was too salty- I made the heart too big and it over-salted the soup. Sorry! The stirfry is a frozen mix that I just made really fast and threw into the container with one of my frozen rice baggies. The rice cooker broke during the move, and while it cooks fine, it’s ‘keep warm’ cycle doesn’t hold in moisture so it gets dried out and gross. We lost a whole batch of rice that way. The second batch I used what I needed and froze the rest right away in one cup portions in the freezer- now if I need rice, I just take a baggie and microwave it.

Tomorrow’s bento? Probably the same thing. Only with chicken.
