Chirimen Bento

This bento was said to resemble the colorfully patterned beautiful chirimen fabric -- by some very kind bento friends over on flickr. Perhaps it may be also due to the large variety of seemingly random food items in this bento! The egg scramble has all kinds of leftover veggies thrown in, which is often how we make egg scramble. Most times we only think of making it when we notice lots of veggies in the drawer nearing the expiration date. Anyway, this one has tomato, onion, mushroom, red pepper, and is sprinkled with homegrown chives. On the side are peapods, star cut radish, leaf cut golden beets, and tomato & pickled bittermelon salad. Also some sweet potato sticks. I had to put the fruits in a separate bowl because there were so many ~ this is why I love summer so much! You can see white nectarine, lychee, cherries, straw-, black-, blue-, and raspberries.
What do you think? Too much? Well, let's just say the boy came home with 2 empty boxes :)
