In the bento: Small dill pickles, carrot flowers, raspberries, two flower shaped onigiri with carrot flower centers, two fried tofu sticks and a piece of steamed broccoli.
To reheat the onigiri for the bento I took them from the freezer and placed them on a microwave safe plate. Next I sprinkled them with a little bit of water and microwaved them for one minute. The fried tofu sticks were already deep fried before storing them in the freezer. To reheat them I put them into a 400 degree oven straight from the freezer and cook for 7 minutes. Reheating them in the oven takes longer than the microwave but preserves the lovely crunchy texture.
