Salmon and Rice Bento

Simple pan-fried butteryaki salmon and black/white rice onigiri make up this bento for my second-grader. He also gets a few steamed satsumaimo in the lettuce cup. On the side I've added kabocha, broccoli and asparagus, and in the fruit section he's got grapes and a beautiful strawberry. A really quick one today, which is usually how Mondays go around here.

Last weekend we got wild weather: thunder and lightning storms, and even a freak hailstorm that scared TinySprite at first. Excuse the lousy pictures, but we were caught totally unprepared, and since we never see hail like this (and it was almost snow-like) we got all excited and stuff. Hehe. Too bad we totally missed the supermoon, but it was clearly visible the days before and after. Looked just about how it always looks. Happy Monday!
Oh, and Bento4Japan is getting updated with fresh new auction items every single day; so if you haven't checked it out recently, you may want to take a look. Remember, all proceeds go to Japan Disaster Relief. Thanks ^_^


  1. How fun! Unexpected hail! Thank goodness they weren't too big,otherwise it's no fun.
    Love the colors in your bento! I miss using lettuce. *sigh*

  2. really a wild weather
    I love your black/white onigiri :D and I should make kabocha someday :b

  3. Whoa. That is some kind of hail. So unusual...I love your black/white onigiri.. So pretty to the eyes and yummy to eat. There are some incredible things being auctioned on ebay Bento4Japan! I can't believe the variety!

  4. oh hail! Aw.. we missed the super moon too. Stupid clouds and snowfall. Disappointing.
    Lovely bento! A really good one for a monday ;)

  5. Hailstorm? Weather went crazy. It didn't damage anything right? Bento is so colorful and vibrant! What can I say, you are the master :)

  6. Crazy hail! I haven't seen hail in such a long time. I love your fish bentos!! You make me realize we need to start eating more fish, lol!

  7. Wild weather indeed! Beautiful bento as usual, however, with beautiful bright balance of wonderful foods--THIS is how to eat!
