Today's bento was inspired by a lovely and exotic bento set from a friend (thank you Jennefer!) and the discovery of a savory new spot for Vietnamese fare in Santa Rosa--Kettles Vietnamese Bistro. Jamison and I had a late lunch there yesterday...
This rustic covered iron bowl contained my entree of savory rice with ginger, chicken, scallion and roast pork
Jamison's yummy noodles with seafood, sparked with tamarind
Today I added garden arugula and asparagus (yep--asparagus coming up in mid-November!), carrots, mini pepper and scallion to the leftover savory rice for a bento lunch:
From the garden a salad of mixed greens, radish, nasturtium
I love the vibrant colors and elegant shape of this bento set!
