Dinner and bento – stir-fry and fried rice


For one of my dinners while Jac was away, I stir-fried chicken, baby corn, mushrooms, bok choy and green beans with lots of garlic. I would’ve loved some tofu in there as well (or maybe even tofu instead of chicken), but didn’t have time to go to the shops to buy some. Oh well, next time.

I ate a big serve of the stir-fry with freshly cooked rice. The mushrooms were nice and squeaky, the bok choy stems and green beans still crisp. I chopped some of the garlic finely, but left most of it in discernible shards – I love cooked garlic that you can really bite into, chew and taste. I’m sure I’ve said many a time how much I enjoy the simple meals I cook for myself. :)

For my bento the next day, I had leftovers: chicken and vegetable stir-fry and fried rice from the day before. Underneath the stir-fry, I packed plain rice. At lunch time, when I removed the compartment of red grapes from the lunch box and zapped the rest in the microwave, the juices from the stir-fry had soaked into the white rice, making it extra yummy.

Jac got home very early on Tuesday morning. I’ve been very busy working on something important – details to come. Replies to comments and emails will be coming soon too.
