Hi there! What's up with you? Our summer is almost over, sadly... Yuppi's summer break was also over already. That means making her bento. She often needs bento at school. What I fixed for this bento are crispy chicken breast, pan-fried potato stars, two Dekofuri-flavored onigiri, and a fruit cup. For crispy chicken, I sliced chicken breast, then dredged in starch generously, then shallow fried until it's crispy. And then sprinkled it with some Magic Salt.
Here is Magic Salt which I use for bento and usual cooking very often these days. For those of you who are curious what it is. It's similar to Crazy Salt, but I like Magic Salt better. The package says... It was supervised by Three-star French chef Daniel Martin, consists of natural salt, black pepper, sugar, sesame seed, tomato powder, parsley, fried onion, garlic, tarragon, and processed starch. You can use it instead of Salt & Pepper, and it's also good for salad dressing as dried herb. I think this can be a big help for simple quick cooking.
By the way, we went to Rusutsu Resort --- a huge amusement park hotel. Had a blast with so many rides, attractions, and fireworks! More photos on Slide Show, flickr.
