As we are leaving on our (very short) Spring holiday tomorrow to Kume Island near Okinawa Island, the Missus had to concoct today’s bento with whatever she could find in the fridge and the “pantry”.
My bento friend at Hapabento will note that my (?) half is using traditional (and small) bento boxes until she finds one of her liking make of cedar tree wood. I agree that the woven box ought to be fine, but I’m going to contradict the resident dragon!
This time she actually used two boxes as the rice and meat garnish took all the space in the bottom tier.
The rice was plain steamed rice, but the chicken that she fried with mushrooms (shimeji maibly) and cut leeks provided for plenty of “sauce” and seasoning, agremented with black sesame seeds..
The pickels were all home-made: red daikon, mini lemons and wasabi stems and leaves.
The second granish box made for plenty of colours!
marinated carrot salad and celery leaf, tamagoyaki containing shiso leaves, boiled peas in the pod and radishes.
Plenty of vitamins and fibers!
For a better view of the tamagoyaki.
Frankly speaking I love these “leftovers” bentoes! LOL
