    Hamburger Steak Bento and fresh fruits on a table.

    Another weekend went flying by. I cooked and shot four recipes on Saturday and got to have dinner with my friend Melanie from Far West Rice. My husband’s cousin and his family are visiting from Japan and we had a great Sunday lunch at the Beach Chalet in San Francisco. It’s one of our favorite places to go since my husband loves their beer and I love watching the ocean waves through their glass window on a clear sunny day.

    As the weekend is coming to an end, even though Monday is a minimum day for my son’s school (which means school dismisses before lunch), I start thinking about what to pack for this week’s lunch menus.

    If you follow my Bento (lunch box) Series, you probably noticed that I usually put the leftover in my son’s lunch box from previous dinner menu. I also pack leftovers in individual containers and freeze them for later bento use. This is helpful when you eat out and do not have leftover to pack for next day’s bento.

    3. Pack cooled Hamburger Steak in a silicone cup and put in bento box.
