Bento days

Sometimes after a long working day, cooking in the kitchen can be a bit of a chore. I love  cooking days when I have the whole day to myself, the kitchen to myself  and all the time in the world to prepare my lunch bentos.

I also love cute bento boxes. When I was in Japan, they had so many pretty bento boxes of different shapes and sizes. I wanted to bring them all home.

Added with kailan and steamed rice, tomorrow’s simple lunch bento.


It’s been a while since I last made tamagoyaki so they look a bit wonky (^__^).

Hooray for bento days!
