I love to try out new restaurants and the best time to do that is during Seattle Restaurant Week! During these 2 weeks, many restaurants will be offering 3 course dinners for $30 and some even offer 2 course lunches for $15. Click HERE to find out which restaurants are involved in this fun event. Seattle Restaurant Week will be on Oct 19 – 23 and Oct 26 – 30, 2014.
It’s leftover day today! We made fried rice vermicelli noodles for dinner last night. Just like fried rice, fried rice vermicelli is also a one-pot wonder filled with rice vermicelli, meat and vegetables. Don’t you just love one-pot wonders? I also packed some mini homemade banana chocolate muffin, sweet potato chips and pomegranate.
For those who are not familiar with rice vermicelli, here’s what it looks like:
It is noodles that is made of rice. Since it is dry, it needs to be soaked in water for a while before cooking.
Happy Monday, everyone!! Monday mornings are always a mad rush at our house especially if it had been a lazy weekend. So bentos are usually very simple. Today’s bento contains potato bread from Macrina Bakery in Seattle, onion and carrot omelette, pepperoni slices and Asian pear.
Have a great week!
When I took a hiatus in March, I did not expect it to last this long. Apparently when you take a break from blogging, it is really hard to get back in the swing of writing again. But I do miss blogging. I missed having my own online journal, a place where I can always check back on bentos I packed, restaurants I visited, cakes I baked and food I cooked. So even though the thought of shutting down this blog ran through my mind a couple of times, I just could not do it. I could not erase 7 years of blogging . So I am back again! Hopefully I will be able to continue this blog for as long as I can.
And here is my first bento for the school year!
This year will be a nut-free and citrus-free year for C. It will be a challenge for me because I will no longer be able to rely on my ever-reliable Nutella or peanut butter sandwiches.:P Today’s bento contains cheese and jalapeño sausage , flaxseed crackers, carrot sticks with Ranch dip in the piggy container and grapes.
