Tz is having his school holidays now so it gave me sometime to pour a little ♥ on my hubby. I made him bento lunch today. Men is easily contented when wife made them lunch or dinner. And when I put a little extra effort in doing something different for him which does not cost me anything but time, I can ask for a little something special in return the next day… haha… well…. most of the time it works so long he does not take the special lunch bentos for granted >ω<
So today’s bento was a “spur of the moment” recipe as I wasn’t intending to wake up early to make him lunch and trust me, I was not planning to ask him for anything. The ingredients I used here are not pre-planned, just what I had in the fridge.
Hubby Bento #01:
Rice topped with shiso leaves furikake I bought from a little supermarket in Nozawa Onsen in Japan.
Salt-grilled Japanese okra…. just the way hubby likes it, simple.
Shoyu ginger-marinated grilled chicken wings, all wings separated in halves for quicker marinating about 20 minutes.
Soft-in-the-center boiled egg
Added sliced steamed carrots and coriander for decorating.
Voilá! His bento done in 30 minutes.
Happy lunch, happy hubby, happy me!
Note. Shiso leaves, bamboo leaves are generally used to keep the food in the bento safe from bacteria. I used coriander here too as I think it has similar properties.
