A lot of "firsts" with my bento experiences these days... I've had sushi a few times before, but just a mild California roll or something similar... no raw fish. ;) I like it as long as I'm in the mood; however, the taste wasn't as strong as I'd remembered. Sometimes the smell of nori can be a bit much.
Anyway, bento #4 (don't you love my creative titles?)
- sushi rolls with (tinned) tuna mixed with chili sauce and cucumber
- hard boiled egg (included a few bunnies... for my first bento in the year of the rabbit!)
- spinach cooked in sesame oil, with a few black sesames
- cherry tomatoes, cucumber
- a satsuma
I wasn't as good at filling in the spaces as I was with my first bento... in fact, as I was taking the picture, I noticed a gap behind the clementine, so ran and cut another piece of cucumber. ;)
I used brown rice to make the sushi... it held together okay, but hey, I need the protein! As much as I love white rice, it's not as healthy nor filling.
