Galbi-Marinated Tri-Tip

Tri-tip that has been marinated in a Korean galbi marinade along with oi muchim (marinated cucumber) are what the kids are having for lunch today.  Also in the box is white rice with some Pokemon nori cutouts.  In a small separate container, there are some fresh whole apricots and a small packet of furikake.

Storm Trooper Bento

I found some really great Star Wars cookie cutters and used the Storm Trooper one this morning to make salami sandwiches.  I could have gotten more elaborate and made nori cutouts for the facial details, but I didn't have enough time. The little salami rosette doesn't really go with the Star Wars theme, but whatevs:)  Also in the box are pickles and apples.  My son is super excited about this one.

Spam Musubi

Last two weeks of school!!!  The kids want bento and of course they wanted these, their absolute favorites:)  They both got 6 pieces of the Spam musubi, cucumber that has been marinated in seasoned rice vinegar and soy sauce, and watermelon for dessert.  I put up the recipe for Spam musubi on my Martha site.
