Chinese Chicken Bento
So it is not the prettiest bento lunch ever, but it really was tasty. This Asian themed lunch was spicy and packed with unusual flavors. I had chicken strips that were marinated in soy sauce. I made Asian Coleslaw, chocked full of peanut butter and rice vinegar and topped with pepper flakes for an extra kick. Want that recipe? I also packed a couple of my Italian Love Knot cookies, not so Asian, but light and lemony, so they complimented well. In addition, a brought along some home made yogurt sweetened with Butter Pecan flavoring and made even more interesting with some fresh blueberries and some spiced nuts.
Once I got home tonight, dinner was a breeze because the hubby made it. The grill was the star tonight, and we filled up on a burger buffet. I love having great grilling weather. My youngest is off at a high school football game tonight. Until then, I plan to take it easy! Maybe have some Pumpkin Bake for dessert later. Lots of reasons to love fall.
