Lighter bento

Here is a bento from earlier this week:

June 15 bento

oh, and this is what the container looked like with it’s cover on:
seal face

In this bento, I took advantage of a sale on bags of precut salad, and an earlier trip to an asian market. The idea was to have a nice light salad with a little extra protein on the side. Shumai are great for bentos because they are self contained and really easy to pack. I steamed these for about 8 mins before allowing them to cool and then placing them in my bento. The mushroom are canned ones that I marinated in some oil and vinegar. Before eating the salad, I just dumped them right on with the oil and vinegar as well to serve as a dressing.
