Just one!

Today I only had to make a bento for myself, while i enjoy making bento for others it can be quite a struggle to think of what to pack as well as taking a little extra time to prepare.

So it was quite nice to be able to wake up later and only have to throw together a fast and tasty lunch.

This lunch took about 15 minutes in total to make, pack and photograph.

This lunch contains:

  • Mixed salad
  • Cherry tomatoes and
  • Egg coated noodles ( I think they need a name.. maybe Ramago? a mix of Tamago (egg) and Ramen (Noodles)

<u>To make the “Ramago”</u> (This is for one serving using a packet ramen)

  • Put 100ml of water in a pan and bring to boil.
  • Add noodles and any spices and stir to break up.
  • Keep stirring until all of the water has evaporated and then turn off heat.
  • Break an egg into a measuring jug and mix.
  • Put the noodles into the egg and stir to coat.
  • Add noodles and eggs back to the pan and cook fully over low heat.
  • Once the egg is fully cooked, turn of heat and serve as desired.

Oh!Bento’s Busy Day!

Ok so wow today has been nonstop! Hence posting so late!

First off this morning I had to prepare two bento. One for me and one for someone involved in the training course I’m currently on.

It was fun and I made the kitchen look like a warzone!

Here is my bento:

Then the wonderful Sheri over at Awesome Sauce and Asshattery made a great post about my DIY bento picks ( You need to head over because she looks great in a yukata!! )

And then my guest post about how to start making your own bento went live over on SushiSushi!

And to top it all off I was up until 23:10 washing the pots and cleaning the kitchen 😦

But overall it was a great day and tomorrow I have to make lunch for me and two of the course tutors 🙂
