Panda Onigiri

Did you know that you can make rice balls ahead of time and freeze them? You can! It's one of my favorite ways to shorten bento prep time in the mornings. This morning I took these two out of the freezer, sprinkled a bit of water on them and popped them in the microwave for one minute. It only took a moment to put on the nori once they were in the bento.

In the bento: Two panda onigiri, an orange slice, a cherry, grapes on panda picks, black olives in a cup, babybel cheese and tiny carrot stars.

There is a small pink puppy soy sauce bottle on the side. Luckily it's relatively flat and fits inside the lid of the bento, as does the small fork!
