“strawb-inari” bento

15 09 2010

we’re still getting temperatures in the 70s this week, but i have a feeling it’s the last dose of summery weather.  so let’s have one “last hurrah” summer bento, no?

three inari pockets filled with furikake rice and topped with beni shoga and edamame, steamed broccolini, fried chicken with a lemon slice, a baby tomato with a lovely “jewel” pick (from a sweet friend — thank you!), and a few lemon-peel swirls make a simple chilled lunch for tomorrow.  i added a few sweet, summery strawberry accents:  printed wax paper, a little berry-shaped baran, and a vintage embroidered napkin.

starting at a new job has meant a bunch of lunch dates with new colleagues over the past week, but i’m hoping to be more regular with my posting soon.

Aw, love the edamame butterflies! Those jewel picks are gorgeous~! Enjoy your summery weather! I’m trying to squeeze every ounce of summer out of these last few days myself! Inari sounds perfect…

This bento is both lovely and yummy Megan. As Susan did, I have educated myself about Beni Shoga by googling it hehehe. Yup, I’m so thrilled with MotoGP this season, but Jorge has to be careful since Dani is going to be wild LOL. As the very bad news, the horrible accident that happened to Shoya Tomizawa has created a big condolence for us as MGP fans.

thanks so much for all of your sweet comments, sheri, lia, steph, lisa, arkonite susan, susan y., debra, kidsdreamwork, jenn, tata and mils! sorry for my late response 0_o

@ susan and ta, yum, i love beni shoga, hope you get to try it (or have already been enjoying it and just didn’t know the name!)

@ sheri and kidsdreamwork, didn’t think of them as butterflies, but loving that concept!

@ ta, that was so horrible with tomizawa, he was so young, it’s terrible. i hope they improve safety precautions so there are no more tragedies!!
