It was a very simple lunch (except for the omelette, which, if I do say so, was flash!) Usually after I make a bento I think, hmmm….it could have been more interesting. But this one did have one of my favourite combos, corn and umeboshi. I love the sunny bright look of corn, it lifts brown rice for sure, which can look a bit drab at times. I don’t know what it is about the flavour combination of corn and umeboshi together, I guess it’s the combined intensely salty/sour/sweetness. I just crave it sometimes. Here I was thinking of a macrobiotic recipe I used to make, brown rice with umeboshi, onion, corn and cabbage. So good! I would have made it today, only I didn’t have cabbage.
This time I used my magewappa bento box…one of my favourites too. I love its soft and subtle colour, and the lightweight feel of it. It seems, I’m not sure how to put it, maybe, “compatible with food”. Maybe “in harmony” would be better. But that’s getting way too serious, so for now I’ll say goodbye! 🙂
