I’m not supposed to get a bento on Saturdays, but the Missus and I being very busy from early morning, my other half decided to make one for both of us. It is simpler in concept than the bentoes she usually makes on Mondays and Tuesadays (none for this week as this was Golden Week Holiday), hence today’s title.
I took this pic to compare the sizes of our respective bentoes. The Missus’ is smaller (front one) and I had some extra dessert!
Today’s bento was not only smaller, but also lighter and definitely in healthy and nutritious-conscious style:
Over some plain steamed rice, she placed lightly pickled carrot parpadelle salad, Home-made pickled wasabi stems, plum tomatoes and freshly boiled peas from her family’s garden.
Then sliced soft boiled egg, katsuo/bonito flakes (not the shavings, but thin flkes like the ones for tuna. You can buy them anywhere in Japan. Very practical and tasty!) and home-made pickle myoga ginger.
As for dessert I had orange wedges and strawberries from Shizuoka!
Simple, colourful and healthy!
