Saba Man and I shared a rare weekday off together. So we decided to drop the car off at the shop for a routine check-up. Off course that was just too optimistic of us because the shop called to tell us that our “whatchamacallit” was leaking… we had no choice but to get comfy in a loaner car.
Not a big deal but it was hilarious when we both forgot about this detail when we went to lunch It took a more than a few moments to realize that we were looking for the wrong car after leaving the restaurant.
Anyhow, this bento is partially filled with leftovers from today’s Chinese lunch; shrimp with cashew and garlic gai lan (Chinese broccoli).
The main event —mahi mahi glazed with miso butter! I also caramelized more of those tiny potatoes in the same pan and they turned out perfectly.
A veggie- mushroom stuffed steamed bun, yellow carrots and a fresh strawberry fill the remaining space.
So yes… Saba Man is back to work, albeit driving a strange car… but at least he has some yummy leftovers from our day together.
