I've been viewing bentos on a number of different blogs. What are bentos...they are the wikipedia states "Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine." But there are many more bentos that are not Japanese cuisine. I think the real definition is more like "a single portion takeout or home-packed meal that is pleasing to look at and has fun designs."
Today, i finally made my first official bento.
Mine is not near as cute as other bloggers have made theirs. (i'm just starting)
Contents - Cucumbers, Green peppers with a Radish (tried to make a cut design), Blackberries and sockeye salmon salad with lettuce on a pesto garlic tortilla.
The making of the bento was fast and it made me happy. The meal will taste good tomorrow for lunch so I've achieved what a bento should, as least that's what i think.
here is some food porn bentos i enjoy reading....
I have tried to add a link to bentolunch for this wednesday's viewing.
