I am kidding, although I did make mean faces at my hubby for about 15 minutes while I was bummed about the loss of this fun bento box. Of course, it cost only about 5 bucks, so it's not a financial blow. But they don't sell them any longer at the Disney Store, and the one I found on eBay is going for 25 dollars. Yeah, I don't think so. (Yes, that's a Tecate beer in his hand. I was determined to get a pic of him shamefully displaying what he did, and he wouldn't put his beer down for the photo.)
The bento I made in this single tier bento box is pretty straight forward. Udon noodles tossed with a homemade shoyu and peanut sauce with sliced carrots and green onions, frozen Aidell's teriyaki meatballs, and frozen edamame. I decided not to heat up the frozen items this time, since I pack my lunches in the morning and they'll thaw by lunch time.
Beverage Pairing Suggestion: The beer my hubby is holding, to drown my sorrows. :)
Oh that's so sad :( Poor Ariel! I've been lucky and hubs hasn't broken any yet. The teriyaki meatballs sound wonderful! I've seen Aidell's sausages but not the meatballs, I'll have to look for them.ReplyDelete
Aw, RIP Ariel box. I have had a latch break on a box very much like that, and I've lost a divider. So sad. It looks like a tasty bento though!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your condolences, Heather! Keep an eye out for the Aidell's meatballs, they are perfect for bento as freezer stash.ReplyDelete
Thanks sheri, I think I may be able to pick myself up and move on now. ;) The bento was tasty, but would it have been even TASTIER in the Ariel box?? LOLReplyDelete
Oh noes... :( I would of pouted for another 15 minutes or so.ReplyDelete
You're great to move on so quickly.
*moment of silence* for the cool Ariel box. RIP
:) Thanks Debra! I have sooo many bento boxes, so it's not such a horrible thing. But still, it was really cute. It reminded me of your sad bento spill recently. I would be more upset about dropping a finished bento than breaking an empty box.ReplyDelete
Oh no! Bento box is like a treasure for us hehehe ... Maybe your hubby will buy a new one for your, Valentine's Day surprise? My hubby broke the clip of my Hello Kitty egg mold before and now I have to use rubber band. Yummy bento will always cheer you up :)ReplyDelete
Lia is right! You should have him break the other clip and then you can use your bands to hold it together! Love your simple bento. let it thaw, so much easier! :)ReplyDelete
Your poor bento box! Time to buy a new one! :) Love the bento- the noodles look delish!ReplyDelete
Bad boy, bad! Did you whack him on the nose with a rolled-up sushi mat? Or rub his nose in it?ReplyDelete
Last time I was at the Disney store, I was sorely tempted to get the little green bento box with a picture of the aliens from the Toy Story movies, but I really can't justify buying more containers unless I "accidentally" break some.
Thanks for your sympathy, Lia! It was bound to happen sooner or later. So many delicate parts to our bento gear. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Mrs. P! I already tossed Ariel out, but dang, that might have worked!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Susan! We'll see if I can figure out a way to get one or two more bento boxes past him. :)ReplyDelete
Ha dragonmamma! I have that Toy Story bento box! It's so cute!!! How bad am I that I haven't even used it yet?! Seriously, I have a problem. :)ReplyDelete
