FINALLY! Spring-like weather! It’s been in the high 50’s to low 60’s so the flower and trees are FINALLY starting to bloom! The daffodils usually show their faces at the end of March, but we had some hard frosts and cool weather lasting into mid April, so everything is late. (What global warming? LOL.) Today I got off work a little early and I have these cute new rice molds, so I knew that a bento was in order!
So for today’s bento, I have an onigiri flower growing in a garden of salad. (Onigiri is stuffed with tuna mixed with soy sauce and sesame oil). I also have yummy blueberries, cheese stars, an egg bunny, and a few Japanese sweets. A perfect light lunch for a spring day!
What’s your favorite onigiri filling?
