A pretty little box to sweeten my return to work after a long (and needed) vacation.
The smaller layer (in front) contains stirfried Japanese broccoli in soy and pad thai sauce, miso flavored tamagoyaki with spinach, breaded tofu and a fishy with chili, vinegar and soy dressing for the tofu (which didn't get salty enough in my opinion - going to have to try marinating it next time! I heard teriyaki dressing works well, or garlic).
The lower layer contains a mix of brown and jasmine rice with egg furikake and black sesame, handpicked raspberries and red currants from the garden. Can you tell it's berry season?
The BF's bento features a starfish onigiri made with a sandbox set I bought a while ago and have been itching to use. If you don't have a way of getting cute onigiri shapers, small sandbox shapers are actually quite useful! Just be sure to moisten (and wash!) them thoroughly before use and have patience - it might take a little while but in the end the star slid out perfectly shaped even though the shaper didn't have a hole!
Otherwise it is the same food as in my box, but he gets a bunch more tofu and slightly less rice than me. Yay proteins!
Were you in a location to see the eclipse today? You can watch a partial eclipse easily and safely without astronomical equipment by spotting the shadows on the ground. When light filters through foliage, it will leave sharp, stenciled spots on the ground. Normally they are round, but during an eclipse, you can see the shape of the covered sun disk instead!
Warning: Never look at the sun with the naked eye or through a lens, even when looking through foliage. You can seriously hurt your eyes!
