Today marks my brush with the bento stratosphere. My guest post is up over at Just Bento, so give it a gander if you’d like to see my fancy dessert bento and mini cakes!
To those of you checking me out from just bento, welcome! I hope you stop by again because I have a few things to post from this weekend, including a pretty awesome squid salad I made yesterday.
In the meantime, here is my bento from Friday:
I was still trying to use up the two large bunches of cilantro I had bought at Haymarket. While most of it ended up in a pesto-like sauce I now have in my freezer, I decided to add a bunch of it to my salad to mix things up a bit. Adding fresh herbs to salads is a great idea to add some extra flavor without adding any fat or sodium. You’d be surprised how they can freshen things up, especially if you are like me and have been eating the same salad mix for 4 days. Also packed with this lunch was a small container of light rice wine vinegar for my cucumbers and lettuce.
