Here are two bento pictures that have bad background color choices. The yellow is overpowering in the top one, and the red overpowers the bottom. Even though these are not great pictures, I still like the bentos! The top bento was one of mine while the other shows a bento for myself and one for A-chan that we recently took for lunch on a long trip.
In the top bento: Half a golden plum, sugar snap peas wrapped in soy turkey, carrot flowers, colossal black olives, Korean sweet potato slices and two curry filled onigiri.
The curry filled onigiri were an experiment. I wasn't sure whether they would be too messy, but they turned out quite perfect! A tiny taste of curry and vegetables in the center. You can see the curry gravy barely peeking through the rice on the sides.
In the bottom bentos: Rice mixed with tofu soboro, apple slices, grapes, carrot flowers, raspberries , black olives. My bento has a wonderful ribbon of sriracha hot sauce.
Normally the tofu soboro would be layered on top of the rice. But since there was a good likelihood of eating in the car I wanted to try and prevent as much mess as possible.
It's been a while since I've posted and I apologize. Last week was crazy! I did pass my huge test and the great news is that I have officially been accepted into college! I'm both a little scared and a lot excited. I can't wait to get started, it's going to be a great adventure.
