Today (Monday) should have been a day for a simpler takeaway lunch, usually sandwiches. But last night the Missus found the edamame too salty for direct consumption and decided to include them in a bento today to attenuate their saltiness. Talking of edamame, you can expect a posting soon!
Therefore today’s lunch box consisted of edamame nigiri/rice balls with edamame and a little furikake/Japanese seasoning mix, Chicken Karage/Fried Chicken (not deep-fried, although prepared the same way and sauteed), Tamagoyaki/Japanese omelette (another posting soon!), pickled ginger and French pickled cucumber, cherries and orange.
Had a side salad to complete the lunch (and dressing in the fridge).
I won’t complain about saltiness!
