Sassy Bento 5.8.08
Sassy gets leftover today, which she helped pack. Well, she watched me pack and made "MMmmmm" noises because she doesn't like to touch wet icky food.
Top has edible joke and vitamins.
Middle is leftovers of white rice, smoked gammon in sweet ginger, sesame and soy sauce with steamed sugar snap peas.
Bottom has Babybel cheese, a fruit bar, raspberries, blueberries and a mini lollipop. She gets a plum and a nectarine for extra snacks.
Recipe for the sauce:
1 thumb of ginger, peeled
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1-2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp water
Puree together in food processor and then add to a hot pan near the end of cooking to cook garlic through.
I use this sauce a lot and it suits all meats and veggies. It takes no time and tastes amazing. You can shift the flavours a bit by adding vinegar, or a half cup of fresh squeezed orange juice, a tbsp of oyster sauce; lots of choices. You have to try a few and see what you like. This also works great as a marinade.
