It's my birthday today! and I spent the morning in the kitchen, making bento... not sure if this was my idea of an ideal birthday activity... but it was fun to eat the bento, outdoors, under the warm sun and cloudless bright blue sky. For some reason, the slightly cool weather disappeared for the day and it was very hot.
I wanted this bento to be a little special, yet not too tedious to make. I finally decided on making large maki rolls containing (real) crab meat, prawns, avocado, egg, cucumber and kewpie mayo. Surrounding the rolls are edamame and the 3rd tier in the bento contains apples, kiwifruit and blueberries.
