Wednesday In Japan. . . Bento Boxes one more time...

Another quick post.
We still have recovering dogs,  
plus for me lots of paper work and  payments to the IRS.

As I have said before Bentos can be super simple, complicated  or beyond fabulous
but always tasty.
.
Here is granddaughter on her first day (who couldn't wait) at pre-school.
I love that she is right there next to one of her teachers. A shy violet she is not !
She is fluent in  both Japanese and English.
I love the school shoes they change into, outdoor shoes are in their cubbies.

 Her first school Bento Box lunch made by Mum.
Tamago, a type of omelet made up of thin layer of egg, soy sauce
mirn and a pinch of sugar,
 along with minced chicken meat balls, rice and a tomato salad.
.
Her second Bento Box lunch made by Dad.
She loves tomatoes and the tiny peanut butter and jam sandwiches,
where a big hit.
In her very own and super cute Anpanman Bento box.
She love Anpanman (bread superman) me too !
Super popular anime character in Japan.

  1. So happy both gud dugs are recovering. Your granddaughter is adorable and has such good parents to make those special Bento box lunches every day. I'm afraid they wouldn't look quite so wonderful if it were left to me to build a Bento...all thumbs!

    1. She is a hoot. Her parents have done a great job with her getting ready to go out in the big world.
      My Bentos never look that good either.

    1. Opps, that one slipped through.
      Mirin is a sweet cooking rice wine used as a condiment, like Sake but with lower alcohol content but somewhat higher in sugar . Very traditional flavor. use with teriyaki sushi, tempura and in all the sauces.
      You don't need much and heating it burns off much of the alcohol

  5. hee hee... That little Mia-chan must light up the entire room! What a cutie!

    The Bento boxes look great. The Japanese have a wonderful way about presentation that only the French come close to matching.

    It's gud to know that the gud dugs are doing better!

  9. So much obvious love from her parents with these delicate and eye-lovely creations! Of course, I shared this post with my daughter, who thinks you are an amazing artist. You do have an impeccable aesthetic eye, Gayle.
