The weather has suddenly turned very hot and dry, making the absorption of liquids vital. However it seems that I Have taken it a bit too litterally recently as a hangover seemed to have chased me around for the past 4 days! LOL
The whole bento was classic and striving for balance and fewer calories as the Missus put it.
Three musubi/rice balls, two containing shredded umeboshi/Japanese pickled plum and wrapped in egomama/large perilla leaves, and one containing boiled edamame.
The Missus added home-pickled myoga ginger for extra taste and healthy nutrients.
Now, what’s inside those rolls?
The rolls came in two types: both were made of thin pork slices wrapped around yam/yamaimo and home-pickled fresh ginger root (the ginger roots are freshly taken out of the earth, as opposite to the somewhat dried samples found all over the world).
The greens are wasabi-na, a kind of lettuce with a taste reminiscent to wasabi without the ping, ameera rubbins mini very sweet tomatoes from Shizuoka.
The tamagoyaki/Japanese Omelette was plain and the supplementary salad consisted of fresh okra seasoned with katsuobushi/dry bonito shavings.
Shizuoka-grown Benihoppe/Red Cheeks strawberries for dessert!
Plenty of vitamins and nutrients! And ver tasty at that! LOL
