Leftovers re-bento'd

One of the things I've learned since making my bentos is how to make the most of leftovers and giving them a bit of a revamp. I've gotten used to digging through the fridge to see what is in there before building my bento.

Left: Carrot and sugar snap pea tomato fried rice
Top right: Cucumber and cherry tomato with japanese dressing
Bottom right: Chicken and ginger patties

The chicken patties were uber easy to make. It's basically a mixture of chicken mince, grater ginger, soya sauce, pepper and a dash of sesame oil. The fried rice was basically leftover rice toss with chopped up veggies, ketchup and a heap of cracked pepper.

Left: Sliced cucumber on a bed of cha soba and carrot salad. The dressing was stored seperately.
Top right: Leftover purple and yellow sweet potatoes and sugar snap peas
Bottom right: KFC crispy strips

The KFC crispy strips weren't crispy anymore, but they tasted absolutely fantastic cold. I also love cold sweet potato, they go sticky and fudgy, its almost like eating a brownie. Except its good for you. Probably not so good for those sitting around you...... ;)
