It has been nearly two years since I started bento wa. So I guess it’s a good time for a little reflection. It seems like my bento style has changed a bit…maybe I’m creating more new recipes than I used to. However, these days I often feel frustrated by my poor photography skills more than anything else. I keep thinking I would like a macro lens; I love the hazy background so many bloggers achieve! I’ve learned a lot from my fellow bloggers so far.
Simple lunch here, some noodles with leftover stir fried minced ginger chicken, and lightly cooked fresh vegetables. There was a nice sauce with it, but I forgot to put it in the picture! Sesame paste and mirin with soy sauce. This was so easy and light, about the nicest lunch I have made in a long time. It was nice to mix and toss the ingredients together, and get the contrasting flavours and textures. How I wish my picture was more special!! It doesn’t represent how happy I felt about this tasty little meal. Oh well, there’s always more to learn.
