Just a simple n rather quick bento, small portion for those who are dieting..
- onigiri with baked anchovy flakes - thin omelet roll cuts - pan fried okra with sweet soy sauce n garlic - pan fried mini sausages cut into octopus and crab - water melon with colorful sugar/choc rice - papaya
I got the idea to cut the mini sausage like this from the anime 'ano hana'
What you see here is slightly smoked and fried salmon on a bed of fresh field salad, accompanied by cherry tomatoes, steamed carrots and fried tofu. And what I also see, is that my pear looks suspiciously white in this picture.
I got the fried tofu recipe from the lovely Thanks again! ^^ 14.03.2012
- onigiri with home-baked anchovy flakes n sesame seeds - baked mini chicken wieners (i had fun cutting them into octopus n crabs ) - cherry tomatoes (home grown) - mixed veggie salad - boiled carrot+corn+peas with mayo n white pepper - canned pineapple cubes with sprinkles - Arabic dates (dried) - pickled young mango
So today I brought these product samples to my workplace to give them a try with some of my colleagues. Yeah I got some positive responses from them
I'm planning to have my students make mini bentos just like these (I'm gonna add cherry tomato later) and sell them (to represent our faculty) at a booth during our next convocation day. I hope this plan will work and we can earn money to fill in the 'student/program savings account' later
O-bento is not popular in Malaysia as well as cheap healthy food. By carrying out this plan, I hope this can promote cheap, healthy, well balanced food among students, and reduce their desire to eat oily foods with extra sugar and preservatives.
I'm sure it's hard to fully accomplish this, but a try is still better than not trying at all, and a small change is still a change. I guess it's worth a shot ^^
