Koreanese bento #18: If I could only bento all day


Steamed shrimp and pork meatballs with steamed asparagus, baby tomatoes, radish flowers and a fruit cup; a bed of multigrain rice sits below.

It’s been a crazy few weeks with lots of travel and some new deadlines. I’m trying to limit my extracurricular activities until this project is done! But I can’t stop bento-ing, or exercising for that matter. So here’s one I made because the meatballs could be done in the microwave without sacrificing taste! Props to Makiko Itoh for the awesome recipe. You can find it in The Just Bento Cookbook, which is kind of like a newbie bento-maker’s bible!
