Hi bento pals! Today's bento was inspired by Babykins' recent autumnal post in which she featured ikura as a savory treat of the fall season. So here for lunch we have little inari pockets filled with avocado and ikura, a departure from the traditional rice-filled "fox inari". For decoration, handmade foodpicks made with cute and sassy little fox beads from Japan that I've attached to toothpicks:
I think the foxes look pleased with the new season and its russety-rich colors!
Baby tomatoes, baby romaine, butter-sauteed shishito peppers (yum!) and shimeji mushrooms are sharing this new round bento set from Bento & Co, whose always interesting selections are so hard to resist! I've been really inspired by the crisp fall spirit in many bentos in our community right now, how about you?
Have a lovely evening...
