When I heard the Missus talking to herself this morning while she was pondering on today’s bento she reminded me of a piece called “Hesitation Blues” performed by Hot Tuna (Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady of Jefferson Airplane) a long time ago!
She didn’t seem to come to terms with what was available in the fridge!

She finally decided to prepare some steamed plain rice with shredded carrot which she later sprinkled with black sesame seeds.
I actually suggested it as it is very tasty and healthy!

As for the side dish she mainly combined “leftovers” with vegetables from her family’s garden!

She first introduced some violet sweet potato and walnut salad she had made the day before. The sweet potato were brought to us yesterday with the renkon/蓮根/lotus roots. Actually lotus roots grown in Asabata, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City are famous far beyond Shizuoka Prefecture borders!
She fried them with green peas in curry powder before adding them to the salad.

She thawed leftover shrimp and pork belly rolls and fried them before placing them on a bed of fresh lettuce adorned with a few Ameera Rubbins Pearl Tomatoes from Iwata City.
Finally she added plenty of tamagoyaki/Japanese omelette for dessert!

Well, I certainly won’t mind her hesitation next time!
