Today is the last of my looong holiday... yewww. Ah well everything has an end, I know. We had amazing summer days early in the holiday. After that, it was raining cats and dogs while we're driving home from Sapporo. It was a record rainfall so we had to get off the freeway. And now I'm staying warm with the room heat at home. Hey what's going on? What weird weather! Sakura trees in Sapporo were in full bloom, while ones here haven't even started to bloom yet. It's totally weird, isn't it? Because my town is warmer than Sapporo. Okay, in any case, we had a blast hanging out with our lovely nephews and shopping around over there. I got some bento boxes for Yuppi because I thought she needed larger ones as she's getting bigger. You will see them sometime soon.
These are bentos I made before the holiday.
A super quick bento. I had made shumai and saved some in the freezer. All I did for this bento was microwave the shumai and saute some sausages!
For these ones, I made a tarako tamagoyaki, shiokoji stir-fry of pork and cabbage, and curry potato salad.
Someone asked me how to make my potato salad on here. So I will write it below.
My potato salad for bento is so simple, but of course you can add other ingredients such as sliced onion, cucumber, boiled egg, etc if you want.
1) Boil cut potato in salted water until tender, and then drain.
2) Season with mayonnaise and a little vinegar. (I added a little curry powder this time.)
3) Mix well, then add salt to taste.
