This morning I realized, to my dismay, I set the rice cooker for the wrong time – having reversed a.m. and p.m. Luckily, I have a “quick steam” setting which saved my bento for today.
I used 1 cup of the Kagayaki sprouted brown rice, and 1 cup organic brown rice, and found the onigiri stayed together well. I don’t know whether this was because of the cooker setting, but for today’s lunch, it worked.
Today’s lunch included:
Onigiri with sesame seed and katsuobushi furikake, wrapped in a strip of nori
Corn on the cob – boiled
Roasted beets in star-shapes
I’ve had two completely finished lunch boxes this week (hopefully today will be a home run too) – and Tuesday, she left a little bit of asparagus and a little bit of her onigiri. She happily cheered as I told her this morning, tomorrow is Pizza Lunch day !! – and the little one followed suit.
“Pizza? Me? Yay!” she clapped.
Next week – I’ll experiment with the onigiri seasonings and shapes, as well as experiment with variations on the asparagus.
