The summer and the oppressive heat do not want to leave place to a cooler Autumn/Fall and yesterday Shizuoka was the hottest place in Japan with temperatures reaching 37 degrees Celsius in Shimizu!
We are in more need of fluids than calories!
The Missus kept the bento as healthy as possible:
She prepared the usual sushi rice and mixed it vegetables (red and green pimentoes, shimeji and maitake mushrooms and celery leaves) she had previusly fried lemon and herb oil. The juices became a natural seasoning to the rice. she added some lemon slices for effect and additional seasoning.
As for the side dish and dessert she placed sliced olum tomatoes and celey leaves at one end, Japanese-style mimosa eggs in the middle (the yolk is mixed with mayonnaise and chopped Japanese cucumber pickles), and nashi pears wrapped in raw ham with a few white grapes at the other end.
Light and tasty, and artistic, LOL!
