The picture for this bento is lost. If I can ever find it again, I will upload it for you, dear readers.
For a quick lunch this morning, I defrosted the other half other pork tenderloin, made a week or so ago. I then put it into a saucepan with a bit of BBQ sauce and made some shredded BBQ pork. Then, I tried to figure out what to do with it. As I was toasting my half of a mini bagel for breakfast, an idea came to me. I put some of the shredded pork on the bottom half of the bagel with cheese on top. A few minutes in the toaster oven and voila, a weird sandwich I don’t know what to call.
Other items found in this bento include:
Steamed yam – Okay, we’ll see how this works out for me. This is a new experience this time. I purchased some frozen yam patties at my local produce stand. I was told this was just straight yam. I think it is, but I steamed it for way to long. It ended up being a viscous (sp?) mass. Not too sweet though. I think I’m going to have to try this again and steam for less time.
Egg – Below the steamed yam is an odd looking thing to the reader. I’ve been reading Lunch in a Box and love the egg molds. But I try not to eat the yolk of eggs for cholesterol reasons. I eat EggBeaters instead. So in an attempt to combine Biggie’s info on egg molds and quickie egg tamagoki (sp?), I cooked the Egg Beaters until cooked but still slightly moist and then pushed it all into the mold. You can’t really tell I used the fish mold, but that’s okay. The main goal is that it kept it all into a neat little package. I’ll have to try this again soon.
Lastly, I have some salad to go with it all. Hopefully this all tastes okay together.
