Sometimes just a plain bento box is required. Nothing fancy, a pragmatic commuter snack that can be eaten sans utensils and without fuss. Today’s featured bento box is exactly that; “Hapa rice” musubi with takuwan and some edamame. That’s it. Simple to make, easy to eat. Now I am not advocating eating while driving and Saba Man does most of his ”on the road” noshing in the parking lot before he hits the freeway. But he could certainly eat this while in motion, if he was on the bus, train or with a carpool. Nothing to spill, no liquids or mess.
Other suggestions for a commuter snack bento are: sliced apples, boiled eggs, chunks of tamagoyaki, mini chicken drumettes, and strawberries! Do you pack snack bento boxes? If you do, what is the purpose and what kind of goodies do you include?
