Miso Pork and Sauteed Vegetables Bento

Chrysanthemum Turnip; Persimmon; Miso Pork Chop; Sauteed Eggplant, Bell Pepper, and Kabocha Squash; Homemade Ginger Kimchee; Onigiri with Umeboshi paste and Shiso

When I was in Tokyo, I picked up a few Onigiri for the airplane. They had these clever plastic wrappers around the nori such that you pulled the corners in a certain order and voila, crispy nori on your Onigiri! I was so shocked to find these on Amazon, I just had to order them to try them out. They turned out to be really easy to use and super handy. I highly recommend these if you like making Onigiri for your lunch.

in honor of the chinese new year i made a dim sum bento. well not a great dim sum bento, a lot of my favorite dim sum items were missing. actually, the truth is i didn’t have time to cook dinner so i had a lot of pre-cooked things.


Rice with umeboshi, potstickers, shu mai, egg roll, cherry tomato, hard boiled egg, sesame green beans, and a hot dog.

his bento

his bento - 12.05.2006

ginger pork on rice; tamagoyaki with spinach; takoyaki with mayo, nori flakes, and red ginger; green beans ohitashi

this bento is very christmas-y on accident. actually i started making it and realized how green it was gonna be, so it was either carrots or takoyaki for color. i decided he’s been a good boy so i’ll give him a little treat. i got some frozen takoyaki already made, so all i do is take one out and heat it up in order to add it to the bento. they are really yummi and even have a tiny piece of octopus inside!
