Autumn Bento

Autumn Bento, originally uploaded by sherimiya ♥.
Here is my contribution to the "Autumn" theme bento!
Pan-fried snapper in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. We ate them with sour cream/lime juice, cabbage, scallions and cilantro in tortillas for dinner. MisterMan gets leftover fish for his bento, along with mushroom & zucchini sauteed in garlic and olive oil, various color carrot skewer (purple, yellow and...I found MAROON carrots!), peapods, and lotus-cut radish. I tried to cut the lower petals more curving -- for this I used a rounded cutting edge. I think next time I'll make the petals wider.
Fruit side has strawberry, red grapes (under), Asian pear and red raspberries.
"Autumn" part comes in with sweet potato maple leaves with sesame seed detail ~ this is how my Japanese maple is starting to look these days.... less red and more bronze....


  1. I've been resisting autumn, but looking at your bento has put me in the mood. I must get some pumpkin now.

  2. Hi hapa bento! yes, get. pumpkin. now!!

  3. I love those purple carrots! They add such a lovely visual effect without any extra effort

  4. BentoBeginner, you're exactly right... and thus they are a staple in lots of my bento :)
    Thanks :)

  5. Nice blog! Your bentos are very colorful, fresh, and beautiful. :)

  6. Thanks a lot Susan! I like to read your blog too; I'm originally from Ewa Beach, and the local references make me nostalgic :)
