Mr, Bento - August 1, 2007

August already? For the first day of the month, my Mr. Bento will be filled with a black rice ume onigiri, a feta + tomato + onion omelet with ketchup, stewed tomatoes with roasted corn and basil, and tuna salad with a black sesane star.

Mr. Bento - July 31, 2007

Here are my Mr. Bento's contents for Tuesday, July 31, 2007. Yogurt & Cheerios for breakfast. The contrasting ume onigiri (pre-made and thawed) are homemade. The wasabi mayo on the tuna salad came in a kewpie bottle with a star tip, so I made a crude attempt at flowers with pickle stems. The fresh basil on the stewed tomatoes, as usual, is from a potted plant on the deck. We got in at 11 pm last night, so I threw it together this morning.
