Bento 128: Saba(again!) with rice

March 21, 2011


In case you’ve not noticed, I am hooked on hot smoked saba. Truly I am. It is simple, easily available (in all supermarkets), healthy and super duper tasty. The problem is each time I buy saba, there is enough there for 2-3 portions. It does not last forever (after all it IS cooked fish); so I usually have to eat them fairly close to each other. It is also one of the most perfect food eaten cold – mmm.



Tomorrow’s bento consist of rice, hot smoked peppered saba; steamed brocollini, cherry tomato and carrot ‘bouquet’ over rice with chives as stalks. Spring is definately arriving – flowers are springing up everywhere !! It is getting noticeably warmer as well; which is wonderful. The garden is being prepped to bring another bountiful harvest in the summer; and I can hardly wait. I do love edible gardens :).


PS: Have you seen the amount of stuff that is currently up on ebay supporting the bento4Japan cause? It is amazing how generous people are!! Please bid away – we have raised close to $1,000 already; which was our initial goal. All in under 1 week. How amazing is this?

You can also join in the raffle here. There is currently only 5 donors; and with 4 prizes this is a no-brainer!! Join in the fun; donate and bento!!
