Bento #89: Meatballs & Corn Muffins

PhotobucketA pretty basic freezer meal this time around.

Corn muffins

Flattened meatballs with spaghetti sauce and frozen carrots

Butter for the muffins and tonkatsu sauce for the meatballs if the sauce didn’t do it for me.

Not pictured: a piece of leftover cheescake I had made for a work potluck…yummy!
