April 14th Bento

I wasn't going to make bentos at all today, but I was awake early this morning, so I figured I might as well get up and make lunch. So this is what an unplanned bento, made by rummaging around the fridge looking for anything edible looks like:

On the bottom we have inari sushi from yesterday's batch, sesame fried bok choy, steamed broccoli and snow peas, and lotus root and red peppers (cooking method was in a previous entry).

The top is a little cake, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, honey tangerine (these are so amazing!!), kiwi flowers (it's faster to punch out flowers than to peel them), more snow peas, cucumber, gyoza and more broccoli.

I decided that rather than do a main carb and a main protein, I'd just include two foods with both (the sushi and the gyoza).

BF said he thought the bentos were really yummy, and they didn't take much time, so I guess that's all I can ask for!
