    LoveBones Nonochan is right, it's tamagoyaki :) Here's some information on SPAM from Wikipedia~ I kind of want to try the garlic spam! Wonder where I can get it... :P

    nonochan Thanks so much nonochan! :)

    texasmomof4 Thanks Texasmomof4! :D

    shoppingmum I actually did buy SPAM lite, but I think used a little too much teriyaki sauce. I found a recipe online for spam masubi that instructed me to marinate it in teriyaki ... but I think it's unnecessary since it's wayy too salty! I'll try again tonight with no sauce. :) The giraffes are made of cheese. :)

    sandizzle meehshell ♥ Jennie bunnie has learned not to use sauce with low sodium spam. :P hehe.

    jencu Jen! You should totally start making kindergarten bentos for Brandon when he gets older! The tiny boxes would be a perfect size for his appetite. :D

    My spam to rice ratio is 1:8 because of the sodium ... hahahaha. But spam musubi is total love (as is spam onigiri :] )

    Super cute bento like always, Jennie!

    i know... i don't have time though! i would totally pay for someone to make them for him though! ;)

    Wow so cute! Were you able to close that box? The food looks so tall! And I can't believe you have never tried spam!! How long did you marinate it? When i make musubi i just marinate 15 minutes, but i like it plain too. Plain spam with jasmine rice and soy sauce is comfort food for me and a staple at my house!

    This looked so good I had to pull some spam musubi out of the freezer for lunch!

  8. Chaya! 103 months ago | reply

    Love it! I also love the way you cut your sugar snap peas.

    I guess it's time to go to the store and buy some spam ;D

  9. ♫ sheree 103 months ago | reply

    Your Hauness Yeah, I actually cut the spam into realllly thin slices at first, but it didn't hold up as well. So I cut them about half a cm thick. :)

    rarebliss. I know! I've seen spam masubi in 7-11 in Hawaii! :D

    jencu Oo I bet he would love them tho. They don't have to be so detailed. You should check out some other Flickr Moms who make bentos for their kids, there's a lot of them on Flickr. :D

    Laura Bento Yep was able to close the box, I just rearranged the spam masubi so it was flat. :D I only marinated them for 5 min, but I think I will try them with no marinade tonight!

    texasmomof4 Hahaha! I hope you had a yummy lunch! nom nom nom...

    BentoRecipes Yay for SPAM! (^_^)/
