As I need bento on Mondays and Tuesdays, the Missus has began a new pattern withrice on Mondays and home-made bread on Tuesdays. Incidentally bento is always sandwiches on Fridays when I go and teach at university.

Today’s main dish was chicken “sasami/breast fillets” she fried with ktechup, basil and what else (she would never say anything!) served with cornichons, boiled egg on a bed of chopped greens with lettuce and chikory leaves and a few plum tomatoes.
I used dressing stored in the fridge at work.

The bread she made last night waswalnuts bread.
She calls it an open-sandwich bento, but she would be surprised to find out I just break the bread and eat a piece at a time with the main dish.
As for dessert I had “mikan/mandarine oranges” from her family’s garden.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments!
    Bento are a great concept for eveyday food as they do have to strike the right balance!


  2. Hi Robert,

    Love this healthy dish, it has a right balance!
    I’ve never tried mikan, I suppose they’ve a similar taste to an orange or tangerine 🙂
    Have a great week!!
