This bento is my first entry for the Bento Blog Network's Bento of the week. (edit: voting is up! vote here) I chose swimming, like others did... I originally chose Equestrian Dressage, but I didn't have a horse cutter and my attempt at making a cheese horse fizzled REALLY quickly.
|Olympic rings made out of cherry tomato... with red and white food picks (Go Canada!).|
The swimmers have nori swim caps and mouths, and carrot swim goggles. Their divider is made out of fat-free deli ham. I've forgotten what sort of cheese the swimmers are made out of, unfortunately... The deli cheese I bought no longer has a tag on it.
To make the salmon salad, I wrapped some frozen salmon in foil and baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. I then took it out of the oven, removed the foil and flaked the salmon meat while removing (and discarding) the bones and the skin. I separated out the 2 oz I was going to use for my bento, added 1 tablespoon of Safeway brand "whipped dressing" (I buy it because it's cheap and I had it on hand, but you can use whatever you like), 1 chopped green onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Very simple, very tasty.
Salmon salad, 2 oz: 130
Mixed veggies: 22
Cherry tomato x5: 20
Broccoli, 2/3 cup: 20
Sticky rice, 3/4 cup: 177
Mystery cheese: 60?
A little over my goal, but I'm not going to sweat 29 calories. ^_^
