Last night I made a mini dinner bento... I was already working in the kitchen, so made it up ahead of time for when I'd be hungry. I didn't think I had anything but veg to put in it, but a little poking around in the fridge and freezer produced two onigiri and some leftover tuna soboro that needed to be used up.
- two brown rice onigiri, one with tuna soboro inside, the other with it sprinkled on top
- sesame spinach
- cherry tomatoes
One of the things I'm realizing about bento is that all the flavors in bento don't always complement each other. I'm a fan of simple tastes: two items at most on my pizza, no more than two veg/additions in my salad. Therefore, combining four or more things in a meal is odd for me... I think three is my limit, but that's not exactly bento! We'll see how this works out.
