Happy Tanabata! What day is 7th July? It's the day that the two lovers in the sky, Orihime and Hikoboshi can meet only once a year. They are pulled apart on opposite sides of the Milky Way. If it rains this day Orihime can't cross over the Milky Way to meet him. So we wish them good weather this time of the year. Plus, in my area, we have a tradition that kids walk around on the evening to get treat from people. You know, it is just like Halloween!
This one is yesterday's bento. I made tariyaki chicken, boiled egg salad, carrot tuna salad for it. And a cup of calpis jelly for dessert.
Today I made tori (chicken) soboro for bento. Today's dessert is fruit ramune jelly. Ramune is kind of a soda pop that's old style, and contained in a strange shaped bottle. By the way, have you ever eaten soda pop jello? It's refreshing and pretty good.
Hey doesn't this bento look like the Milky Way? I didn't mean that at all though. Soboro Milky Way!?!? Heh
