Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Husband Bento #23 – Chicken Wraps

Yup! The title of this bento is simply Chicken Wraps (….creative brain juice running low, can’t think of one… haha).

The ingredients are nothing fancy. Just
◊ Grilled chicken thighs marinated overnight with garlic, coriander roots, pepper and fish sauce paste
◊ Sautéed cabbage and carrots with shoyu, sake, sugar and balsamic vinegar
◊ Some fresh herbs
The only thing that is different is the wrap itself. I made korean jeon or pancakes (thinner than usual, like a crepe) to use as wraps. I added small tiny dried ebi or prawns (you can buy from Japanese stores) to the pancakes.
Accompanying the wraps are some mashed potato with cucumber salsa salad, a jumbo Nira (chives) tomago-yaki, some radish pickles and a chestnut yokan  (Japanese wagashi) as dessert.

Check out the adorable little spoon which I bought from a talented ceramic artisan in Chiangmai. I love how he mixes raw wood with ceramic and cute patterns on it. They are clouds with tiny raindrops…. Awww….. ♥ ♥ ♥….

…Sorry, there is no recipe on this post…. >x< …. I will make it up on my next post. However, if any of you need the recipes, just drop a note to me. Have a great day ahead!

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.
