So far this week, I haven't had a chance to try out some of the bento recipes in my new Just Bento Cookbook that I got as a birthday gift over the holidays thanks to this wonderful person --> KLTworks. I did buy all the ingredients I needed over the weekend but what with the kiddo sick and me trying to catch up with work.. there hasn't been time.
I did however, manage to find a kabocha squash and roasted them in the oven with olive oil, onions and a bit of balsamic vinegar. I tell you, they're good hot, warm or cold! For yesterday's lunch, I quickly put together a picnic style bento because everything I had seemed picnic worthy. The tortillas are filled with old fashioned chopped ham.. I also added sweet bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and olives with a hummus dip with some salami/prociutto mix rolls. On the side? Roasted kabochas sprinkled with roasted sesame seeds. Yum! Quick and easy.
