a quick post since i’m a little bit tipsy after a few drinks with my best girlfriend…
tomorrow’s bento in a magewappa box has two onigiri filled with flaked salmon. i mixed the salmon with chimichurri sauce (a new favorite in my household for serving with salmon — it’s so flavorful!) and mayo and then stuffed the rice, which was a blend of short-grain white and long-grain brown (texmati). the onigiri are topped with blossoms made from cheese and steamed purple potato — they look familiar to me but i can’t place them. cherry blossom? plum blossom? let me know if you have a guess!
the rest of the box has a steamed broccoli floret, a mini red pepper, a star-cut carrot, a roasted shitake mushroom, some slices of takuwan, a few pea pods, and a pretty sakura pick.
i’m trying to stick to a posting schedule of tuesdays-through-thursdays, with no bento on fridays because of a whole bagel-breakfast-which-turns-into-leftovers-for-lunch extravaganza that we have in my department on a weekly basis. so, have a great weekend and i’ll see some of you on twitter in the meantime!
