Suh - LAH - kerr

Yup. That's my name, don't wear it out. I know you've been waiting for it, so without further ado:

my lunch.

Yes, I know that posting photos of my lunch everyday may qualify me as being, you know, WEIRD, but since I've pretty much been regarded as such in one way or another all my life, I guess I'll just keep on keepin' on, you know?

Oh, and before I start, I just have to say, gentlemen, just because it is hot outside, and you don't have boobs, does not mean that it is okay to walk/drive around without a shirt. Just don't do it, okay? Thanks.

Now that your appetite is all nice and whetted, I give you the three measly bento lunches I made last week.
Top tier: stemed white rice with furikake and fake scampi. Seriously, the easiest, yummiest thing you can cook in five minutes. Toss a tablespoon of butter (I used Smart Balance, trying to be healthy you know) and a clove of garlic that you pressed, along with a few generous pinches of parsley into a small saucier. When the butter is melted, toss in the raw shrimp and stir until cooked. Piece of cake and delicious! Oh yeah, and a little piggy of soy sauce.

Bottom tier: a hardboiled egg, broccoli, carrot stars and steamed pork dumplings. Now, these are new for me, and I've seen them in the store before, but always passed them up because the picture on the package made it look like each dumpling was topped with the dumpling equivalent of a sphincter. Who wants to eat sphincter dumplings? Not me, so I passed. Well, the husband insisted last time, and it turns out that when you cook them, they don't look like the package at all. Therefore, they were okay to eat, and they ended up tasting really good.

Lid: ha! I don't usually post the lid, but it can hold goodies too! Here, we find some Pocky. I didn't eat all of those though, I shared.
Top tier: heart shaped onigiri with soy-ginger chicken filling (some had black sesame seeds mixed into the rice before shaping), broccoli, carrot shapes, and a hard boiled egg adorned with a nori star. I have this set of tiny cookie cutters (actually I think their original intended purpose was to cut Fimo clay, but I've always used them for food) and they have a bunch of non shapes that are cute, but not actually anything. Check the cake decorating and polymer clay sections of the craft store for super reasonably priced mini cookie cutters for veggies and the like. They're a quick way to add super cute to your bento.

Bottom tier: gyoza, edamame, more carrot shapes, and a fishy of gyoza sauce.

Side dish: fresh strawberries and blueberries with some Koala cookies that I wrapped in Press N' Seal so they would stay crisp. That stuff ROCKS.
Top tier: loads of edamame, a hardboiled egg, and a flower shaped onigiri with soy/ginger chicken filling adorned with carrot petals.

Bottom tier: steamed pork buns, carrot chips, and curry croquettes.

Side dish: frozen mango chunks and koala cookies wrapped in Press N' Seal so they would stay crisp. The cookies are called Koala's March and are filled with chocolate. YUM.

Ok so when do I get to try one of these lunches out? Seriously? I mean it's either that or I come steal bacon from the bacon bowl at the Hilton.
