Yuppi has a field trip again despite the rain. Today's bento features Karaage (Japanese fried chicken)! Looks like I make fried chicken for her field trip bento each time? Many kids are big on it. I was also no exception as a kid. Fresh-fried karaage is tip-top but it's tasty even cold, and marinated one is also good for bento. There are tons of karaage recipes out there, but I usually do in a simple way. I seasoned cut chicken thigh with some shoyu, ginger powder and black pepper, then dredged in potato starch, then shallow-fried it. The rest of this bento has two onigiri, usual tamagoyaki, honey buttered purple sweet potato, and a cup of grapefruit, orange and green grape for refreshment. Whoa I'ts already Friday!? And this one is the last bento this month!!! Happy weekend all!
