In this entry, my bento lunch boxes are more on sandwiches, bread, western food et al. Sandwich option is indeed faster and more convenient to cope. We are talking about in the rush morning and you want to sleep until the very last minute as possible. lol Again, some Japanese styled bento-s are shared here too, for those who are really into rice. Yeap, I have friends said they must eat rice.
Lightly pan-fry a slice of luncheon meat.
Dice cucumber, sprinkle some salt, mix and its access water squeezed, stir in some Japanese-styled mayonnaise.
Take 3 slices of sandwich bread stacking luncheon meat & cucumber into layers. Remember to spread some butter over the bread slices that sandwiching cucumber salad, as cucumber salad can be washy in extended time.
Marinate salmon fillet with olive oil, chopped fresh dill, salt & pepper. Pan-fry in the morning with a little bit of olive oil. Get a case of salad leaves (cut / tear), squeeze some mayo, arrange the dill salmon on top along with a cut of lemon.
Boil the corn in water for 15 minutes, spread with butter salt.
- Karage chicken bento with poached broccoli and red capsicum. The tsuke-mono in the middle is takuan.
- Gobo ごぼう・牛蒡 onigiri-s, grapes and Japanese grapefruit.
How's that, huh? Hope my posts can inspire ya some ideas for preparing bento lunch box. And, I repeat, these bento-s are not solely for adults, many can cater for kids as well, you just make them a little "cuter" and more playful in theme. lol
