Why did I call this bento “crabby”?
Well, the Missus was “crabby”, meaning she was in a slightly foul mood! LOL
The other reason is that she did use you crab in her bento!
After steaming the rice she prepared simple balls of rice mixed with a few capers inside cellophane paper.
She unwrapped them, made an indent in their middle by pressing the ball with her thumb, filled the indent with mayonnaise and placed some crab in the middle.
All the crab came from frozen boiled pincers!
She then placed the balls inside the bamboo fiber box individually wrapped in lettuce.
As for the “Garnish” she included a salad of carrot tagliatelle and mixed boiled beans in one half and fresh tamagoyaki/Japanese omelette with lettuce and home-pickled radish.
For dessert she included a ponkan orange I brought from the other side of Izu Peninsula.
Simple, colourful and very satisfying!
I still have to get rid of the cold the Missus was so kind to give me!LOL
