The Missus had planned a sandwich bento when she belatedly realized she had already prepared for the rice to be steamed when she entered the kitchen!
-“Sorry, very simple bento today!”
-“No worries (no problem!)”!
It was simple, indeed, but as I have to look out for calories (Missus’ orders) these days, It was not an issue. LOL
The rice had been freshly steamed together with a piece of konbu/seaweed. She made four musubi/rice balls that she wrapped in shiso/perilla leaves. Twp were rice mixed with Japanese style cucumber pickles (finely chopped), one was mixed with hijiki/sweet seaweed and the last one was topped with a umeboshi/Japanese pickled plum.
As she can make tamgoyaki/Japanese omelette in a jiffy, she prepared one containing small pieces of cheese and gree/red pimento. Very tasty, actually.
For dessert she included some apple. kiwi fruit and grenadine compote (home-made) from the refrigerator.
As for the salad, she prepared the usual assortment of chopped greens, hand broken lettuce and cabbage, cut plum tomatoes and bits of jiro kaki/squat persimmon to which I added dressing kept in the fridge in my work place.
Can’t complain, can I?
