Sweet Sour Meatball Bento
Good morning! I thought spring had come at last but I turned on the room heat again today. It seems like Mr. Spring doesn't to want to come over here. The only good thing is that I can still enjoy hot drink and food. Well today's bento contains two brown rice onigiri, spinach namul, shrimp and boiled egg salad, and sweet sour meatballs. When I made the Hamburg Bento, I saved some of the patties in the freezer. And this morning I thaw them and dressed with sauce of shoyu, sugar, vinegar and starch. I think sweet sour salty things are good for bento because they taste good even cold. As you know I was having an affair with white rice for a short while, but I started using brown rice again. White rice makes bentos look bright, but I still prefer brown rice. Now I'm trying some ways to cook brown rice as I want it to be. Not dry but not too sticky. Hmmm a bit difficult but so interesting!
Today's photooo! This one has been the most popular on my Flickr page lately so I had to share it heehee. You can find out the details of these strawberry tarts here.
