Mr. Bento - August 31, 2007

Last day of the workweek, last day of the month, Friday, August 31, 2007, and my Mr. Bento has quite a mishmash of stuff in it. The big bowl is a mix of Asian, southwestern barbecue, and German. The star is toasted brown rice, and it's ringed with chicken bratwurst, yellow bell pepper, and onions, tossed in Rudy's BBQ Sause (that's how it's spelled). Tri-color grapes are from Whole Foods; sourdough bread's from TJ's. The little dressing container is balsamic vinaigrette, going over the salad with little yellow tomatoes.

Entree is chicken bratwurst, vegetarian beans, and habanero-sauce-fish. The salad has yellow tomatoes on top, blue cheese dressing on the side. Mixed grapes for dessert, and Trader Joe's sourdough in the breadbowl.
The grapes are from Whole Foods -- they have a tri-color box. Got the tomatoes and brat there, too, but the greens and bread are from TJ's.

Mr. Bento - August 10, 2007

My Mr. Bento will have a wide variety of contents for the final workday of the week, Friday, August 10, 2007.

My first attempt at molding eggs,using the Williams-Sonoma ice cream cookie molds, as suggested by biggie. Definitely follow her advice to use extra-large or jumbe eggs. The large eggs just didn't fill the molds up enough. The brown tinge is from soaking the eggs in tea, with the highlights applied with katsu sauce.
