Shige Chan is a famous producer in Shizuoka City who not only grows top-class cress and tomatoes but also makes and sells udon seasoned with them!
They do make not only for great taste but also for great health!
So the Missus having prepared and cooled down a batch of cress udon, she seasoned them with tomato puree and a secret ingredient she refused to reveal. She lightly stir-fried large shrimps cut into small pieces and added them to the udon before tossing the whole lot and filling a bento box with them. Naturally she decorated the udon with fresh cress for design, taste and welcome fibers, iron and vitamins!
As for the side box, she prepared an avocado and walnuts salad she placed in cups formed with Trevise leaves and completed the dish with boiled egg halves seasoned with black sesame seeds and a few fresh radish and their edible leaves beside a couple of French pickles.
Dessert? The walnuts! LOL
Once again a very healthy and tasty Autumn/Fall Bento!

Avocado and walnuts combination rocks! I will test it soon.
When I read about your wife’s culinary secrets I start thinking I shouldn’t reveal my secret ingredients so easily (especially when I mix tofu with lean ground meat as a dumpling filling and then I reveal it to my tofu-hating guests who, unconscious of the hated ingredient, love the dish 😉
Actually it’s a bad example. I enjoy such situations a lot.
Don’t worry too much. It’s not so much the ingredients or the secrets but the skills!
There will be two to come on Tuesday and Wednesday!
