Today’s bento is quite straightforward yet with an assortment of flavors.
There’s no elaborate positioning and placing of foods in my bento – just a simple spread of everything I’ve prepared.
I still wanted it to look quite pretty though. The only difficulty I’ve encountered is making sure everything’s leveled; there’s a little bit of rice at the bottom to help me with that. However, I didn’t want to put too much because although I didn’t count the calories for this meal, I wanted to make sure it’s still not too much for me. Looking at it though, perhaps it’s still a bit too much food for lunch. Oh well, I can save some for dinner if I don’t finish it.
Here are the food items in my bento: Deli-style roast beef (cut and folded to look like a flower), ajitsuke tamago (Japanese soft-boiled egg), raw broccoli and carrots, thin egg strips, and tuna soboro.
