Happy New Year Tiger Bento

Posted on February 11, 2010 by Debra

It’s  Chinese New Year 2010, “The Year of the Tiger”.  


It was late last night when I started packing this bento and before completion… I  was cursing !   Hey…. Why can’t this be  “The Year of the Egg”? 

Anyway… long story short, here’s the final product; a featured bento with a base of roasted asparagus, white  tiger musubi, veggie gyoza, salmon patties, cukes, and tomatoes (for you Linda).

Even though this bento was a challenge for me, I kind of  like doing these charaben/kyaraben.  You may see another one soon.  In the meantime… Kung Hee Fat Choy!
