Sausage salad bento idea

Bento is not only rice, and you can eat a delicious meal with other ingredients like potatoes, green beans and... cornichons! This is my bento idea for days when I literally cannot look at rice, e.g. the day after sushi day. And, because most of the ingredients are pre-made in jars, you can quickly assemble this set when you're short on time. What's not to love about this bento idea?!

Tamagoyaki, or Japanese omelette

Japanese word tamago means an egg and word yaki usually indicates that it is fried in some kind of way — with this recipe you can make a wonderful Japanese delicacy that not only tastes great, but also is a great way to make a great-looking little dish for your breakfast or bento!

Tamagoyaki has really interesting taste and springy, delicious texture.
