Bento content
-Sealed sandwich with aubergine caviar, sprouts
Red fruits jelly

Steamed rice onigri stuffed with sprouts and spread cream
Polish sweet red cabbage salad

My friend StL did all the travel to our place to say hello. And she even came with a present : a sandwich sealer. So I think the least I could do to thank her was to publish Bear’s bento. Thank you so much! For those of you who don’t have it one solution can be to use the flat part of the blade of knife to seal it.

English breakfast

Vegetarian, Bento, Cuisine, Recipes, Zoé

Breakfast
Poached egg
Beans in sweet homemade tomato sauce
Homemade bread

Lille, cold freezing mornings though the sun is out. A scarf, gloves and hat are more than necessary. A little flat, tiny kitchen. Big enough for a proper English breakfast to give me the strength to fight the icy wind.

Bento (Bear’s)
Olive and tomato cake
-Tup of mayonnaise
-Two steamed onigris stuffed with spread cream and sprouts (nori)
-Lentils sprouts
-Carrot sliced
-Mushroom sliced
-Quarter of apple

I don’t now how many photos I tried to take of my Mamie’s olive and tomato cake (my French Granny). So this is my last shot, it’s not good and doesn’t seems as yummy as it should. But I’m fed up of trying, I did everything I could possibly think of. So here you are with Bear’s favourite salty cake. With some little items to highlight it.

Mexican soup

Dinner
Mexican soup
-Bread

With this cold weather a good spicy soup is the best meal one can hope for. It’s a spicy tomato soup with chick peas. Add some bread and this gives you a well-balanced meal! It’s one of the meal which we really enjoy and can be really quickly done on a busy evening.
