In the large container: a hard boiled egg, tuna in oil, boiled new potatoes with herbs, and steamed green beans. In the smaller container: a mandarin orange, walnuts from the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market, and a Ghirardelli chocolate. The bento boxes are from a set of four that I picked up at Border's Books.
Here's the ManPans frying pan in action. It heated up really fast and kept the heat well. Normally my burners have cool spots in the middle, but this pan heated up evenly across the surface. And the sauce came together in a flash.
Here's our dinner. This sauce was really tasty and super easy. I recommend checking out Martha's Everyday Food section for easy dinner ideas. And big thanks to La Fuji Mama, Bella Limento, and Salty Seattle for hosting the Food Ninja contest.
i saw the cute bento boxes and went to Borders to get a set for myself. thanks for the heads up :) xxx MarleneReplyDelete
I totally did the same thing, Marlene! Sheri of Happy Little Bento posted pics of these bento boxes from her visit to Borders, and I totally went out the same day and bought them. The power of suggestion in action! :)ReplyDelete
Those boxes are soooo cute! I haven't had a Nicoise salad in such a long time, it looks so yummy. And the steak, oh my gosh, cut me a slice please! :)ReplyDelete
Your bento and steak look amazing! Are you going to put your "major award" in the window for all of the neighborhood to see?????ReplyDelete
Thanks Susan! I love Nicoise Salad and seriously need to eat it more often. So tasty.ReplyDelete
Ah ha ha ha! I am so glad you got that reference, Heather. I just rewatched A Christmas Story last night. Classic! "I can't put my arms down!!"ReplyDelete
I have been out of touch this past couple of weeks and i'm trying to catch up on your posts. Your steak looks yummy...and I can't help but notice the Budweiser sitting beside your steak pan. haha...my husband would do the same if he had to cook!ReplyDelete
Hee hee, I am glad someone finally noticed, Mrs. P! I figured, if I am cooking with something called a MANPAN I should probably be drinking a brew while I do it. :)ReplyDelete
