Chicken & Pork Rice Burger 3

While living in Japan, I used to frequent a burger restaurant called Mos Burger.  It basically sold Japanese-style hamburgers.  Many of the toppings were catered towards the Japanese palate, so eating there was always an adventure.  One unique burger on their menu was the rice burger.  Instead of using a wheat bun or lettuce, the […]

Mini Italian Meatballs in Lunchbots Duo

Pasta with some type of sauce is a weekly staple in my house.  Normally I make some type of tomato based sauce to go along with my pasta.  Last week, I pondered between making a simple meat sauce, or homemade meatballs.  My kids really don’t have a preference, so the decision was purely mine to […]

Spicy Asian Shrimp Pizza in Easylunchbox

I’ll be the first to admit, my kids are pretty adventurous eaters.  Maybe it’s due to the fact that during their formative years, we lived in Japan, and they really had to adapt to the local cuisine. Or maybe it’s because their Mom is easily bored, and loves creating new dishes.  Whatever the case, I […]

BBQ Chicken Wings in Lunchbots Duo

The other day, my kids wanted to have a picnic lunch in our backyard.  Initially, I was surprised by their request, since picnicking is not something we typically do.  But the more I thought about it, the more their idea of having a picnic in our backyard appealed to me. So now that we were […]

Spicy Asian Shrimp Naan Pizzas

The first time I was introduced to naan pizza, was at a little cafe in Kobe, Japan. I remember being a bit skeptical when I saw curry chicken naan pizza on the menu, but decided to be adventurous and give it a try. I quickly realized that I was totally overanalyzing things, since naan bread […]
