Magewappa Bento #2 and Ninjin shirishiri Bento
Today's magewappa contains cheese-stuffed chicken cutlets,
slices of nori-rolled egg,
stir-fried radish leaf and shirasu (teeny tiny sardines),
mentsuyu (sauce for Japanese noodles)-braised carrot stars,
pink kamoboko roses
and a pickled radish.
The second bento has dishes that go well with rice.
Stir-fried pork slices flavored with syoyu and suger,
grilled mackerel slices,
braised shimeji mushrooms and chicken fillets flavored with yuzukosyo (yuzu citrus/green hot pepper sauce)
and ninjin shirishiri (stir-fried shredded carrot and egg) flavored with salt and black pepper.
Ninjin shirishiri is one of Okinawan home style dishes. Okinawa is south islands of Japan. I live in a big north island of Japan, though.
My travel report is continuing. We stayed at Hotel Kiroro last weekend. Kiroro city is like 250km (150 miles) away from our town. Although there was hardly snow around the town, Mountain Kiroro had tons of snow. My hubby, daughter and nephew enjoyed skiing a lot. I'll carry the rest of animal pics on next time!
