Today’s Lunch Box/Bento (’09/38)


The Missus started devising and prapring today’s bento last night when she stewed the chicken, with the firm idea to taste it herself at home by herself toady!LOL


She first boiled eggs before taking care of the chicken. The chicken was first fried then slowly simmered with the eggs in the Chinese shashu pork style with soy sauce, sake, star anise and I don’t know what secret (don’t expect me to ask her, or it will start another argument!). She provided home-made pickled mini melons for the “salty additive”.


It was basically only light reheated when the chicken and sliced boiled/simmered eggs were placed on freshly steamed plain rice. She added some of the “juices” to season the rice and topped it with a goodmeasure of black sesame seeds.


the salad was a simple affair of chopped greens with mini tomatoes and a few walnuts.


Finallly, I was provided with “ume tare/pickled plum vinaigrette” for the slad, and apricot jelly for dessert.

Ma ma yokatta!/Not bad!

    1. Dear Kamran!
      Salam Aleikum!
      Make sure you eat properly before going to school!
      It is never a good idea to skip lunch at school, I can assure you!
      Make sandwiches (chicken and veg are very good for health!) before leaving!


      1. Walaikum Assalam!

        Luckily I do eat a healthy and filling breakfast, but lunch is my weakness… I have the last lunch period of the day, so I am always munching on my sandwiches (or some fruit) in between classes, just so I can think straight. Today, I made a bad move not to pack anything… Thanks for the tips… Now, I have a sandwich idea for tomorrow =)

        Bon Appétit!
