Steamed chicken with noodles bento

December 16th, 2008


Today, because I woke up late, I decided to pack a quickie bento for hubby.  I call this a quickie bento because almost all the items can be prepared and cooked at the same time:

  • Instant noodles: I boiled the noodles and while waiting for it to cook, I prepared the noodle sauce on a separate plate (soy sauce: dark and light, oyster sauce, sesame oil, dash of pepper)
  • Steamed chicken drumstick: I rubbed some salt on the chicken drumstick and let it steam in the wok till cooked.
  • Broccoli and carrots: lightly boiled in a saucepan for a few minutes.

I also threw in a container of chilli sauce for good measure.  Having basic ingredients in the fridge comes in handy when we are short of time and need to pack a quick lunch.

What I did with Turkey Leftovers

December 9th, 2008

Yesterday evening, I roasted the pre-marinaded turkey breast I bought from the supermarket before Thanksgiving.  I believe it had herbs and spices, and because the instructions seemed so easy, I could not resist trying it out.  Besides, another reason I bought it was because I wanted it as a backup in case my Thanksgiving roast turkey failed.  But my roast turkey turned out okay, and I was left with this turkey breast to roast now.

Anyway, I roasted the turkey breast last night and we had it with steamed rice for dinner.  The flavors were just right and the meat was very tender, but since it was such a huge serving, we obviously had leftovers, which I refrigerated.

And so today, hubby and I had our lunch comprising turkey leftovers!  His was a double-decker turkey sandwich. 


I toasted the bread and spread some butter on one slice, and some cranberry sauce on the other.  Then I cut the turkey into pieces and mixed the meat with some mayo, added a piece of green lettuce and voila!   A delicious healthy lunch!  Cherry tomatoes were also added for fiber and color.


As for me, I didn’t feel like having a sandwich for lunch, so I made myself some instant noodles with some sliced turkey meat on the side.  I threw in an English muffin too, because I wanted to have that in between meals.

I used the double-decker Bento box I recently purchased from Mitsuwa, simply because it come with a pair of chopsticks.  I bought this box primarily for my hubby because it looks more masculine compared to the other ones I have.  Looks kinda stylish too, huh?
