Obento April 28, 2010
Today's bento has three sorts of skewers.
Rolled asparagus/bacon skewers
Rolled chikuwa/cheese skewers
Cherry tomato skewer
Braised shiitake mushrooms
Stir fried bamboo shoot and shirataki (konnyaku noodles)
Boiled egg balls
Brown rice topped with hanabira-fu (pink flower-shaped gluten puffs)
Have you ever seen chikuwa? It's a grilled fish paste tube-shaped, a kind of kamaboko. I think it's a good item for a bento dish. It's okay to eat both cooked and non cooked. You maybe able to find it at an Asian food section of supermarket. Today, I rolled it with processed cheese slices. Chikuwa goes well with cheese and it's so easy to make a chikuwa/cheese roll. So how about it when you can get some chikuwa!?
