Today was certainly back to work after a great Sunday spent playing cricket away from the computers for a ful day!
Today’s bento was also very much a classic bento.
The Missus steamed plain rice and filled one box with two layers of it separated with seaweed, a very popular way to remind the taste of a seaweed wrapped musubi.
She added home-pickled renkon/lotus roots with black sesame seeds, gobo/burdock root and carrot salad in gomadare/sesame sauce, and the last the mukago/yam nuts from my nighbor’s garden she had deep-fried beforehand.
The garnish was also a classic in two separate parts.
Karaage chicken/deep-fried chicken, Japanese-style, and friedsweet ptatoes with lettuce and lime for seasoning and more vitamins.
Salad of home-pickled cucumber, carrt, pepper and daikon.
Dessert consisted of apples stewed in roselle (hibiscus) jam I had made following a visit at a local farm.
A solid and tasty bento!

How does your Missus keep her magewappa boxes from absorbing the food’s strong flavors?
Dear Debra, greetings!
The boxes are either lacquered or treated not to absrb the tastes!
Oh, I’m so craving karaage! Mrs. Shizuoka Gourmet must love you very much, your lunches are always so excellent!
I wonder about the Missus’ love!LOL
She is always nagging and grumbling!
But I gladly admit that her box lunches are great!
