I was able to get up early today yeay haha!! So I had enough time and made a flower garden in the bento. Today, my nori-ben theme is beginning. Nori-ben is the most typical Japanese bento. It was wee babykins' favorite bento, which always included red hotdog-octopuses and slices of tamagoyaki. I felt happy whenever I took it to the kindergarten.
Today's bento includes a nori-ben,
broiled shrimps flavored with mayo and Parmesan,
spicy teriyaki chicken,
carrot/cucumber pickles flavored with yukari (salty purple perilla leaf),
I dipped pieces of nori in shoyu then put on the rice.
★babykins' quick spicy teriyaki sauce (for about 1 chicken breast)★
1 tablespoon Shoyu (Japanese soy sauce)
1 tablespoon Ketchup
1 tablespoon Water
1/2~1 teaspoon Curry powder
(This taste suits both rice and bread. If you make this spicier, you could add grated garlic or onion and other spices. I barely use garlic for bento dishes though.)
Please look at today's our OYATSU (means snack, sweet and tea break).
