Bento #3

Didn't need to take lunch to work on Monday and Tuesday as I had lunch appointments lined up but I knew that today, Wednesday will be a working lunch for me as I will need to do some final checks on my presentation materials for my meeting in the afternoon. Wanted to make a very simple, almost vegan bento lunch for myself as I reckon that I've been taking a bit too much meat lately.

So, last night, before I went to bed, I looked into the fridge to see what I have in there that are either leftovers or has to be eaten before it expires. Ha.. spotted a packet of Chuka Wakame (soft seaweed in vinegar sauce, with sesame seeds), some left over homemade terayaki chicken and some cherries with skins starting to look like my grand auntie's. That's what I decided to make as my bento lunch for tomorrow. Steamed some rice in the steamer before calling it a night.

This morning, preparing the bento was quite fast and easy. Just had to re-steam the rice ( and found that i do have rather a lot, enough to make 2 bentos) whilst preparing the rest food. Decided to do one for my friend Tobiyama, letting him have the teriyaki chicken pieces. This is my bento lunch, complete with some soup in a cup :)... I really needed the soup as it has been quite cold in the office lately.

Rice topped with some seaweed, bonito flakes and sesame seeds, Cucumbers, scrambled eggs which I fried this morning and wakame.

This is the bento for my friend, Tobiyama. The only difference is the chicken pieces.
