“Look Ma, no salad!” LOL! That’s how I feel this morning as I post about today’s bento lunch. To make the last two days of this week easier, I bought a pound and a half of rotisserie chicken wings from a local grocery store on Wednesday night. Along with that, I purchased garnet yams and green beans. Yesterday’s lunch had salad. Today, steamed beans and roasted yams.
And before I sign off on today’s post, let me say something about these yams. I like them. As in, I really love them. Not due to the way I am cooking them but because of the way they taste naturally. Sweet potato is one of those vegetables that I convinced myself to like when I began this food journey in 2007. However like broccoli, it was a vegetable I refused to eat. I always found them too sweet. Today, I do eat them but always roasted, baked, or steamed plain. The most I might add is an herb seasoning, but no cinnamon or sugar. And still there are times when a sweet potato tastes too naturally sweet to me. However, these yams I’ve found are much less sweet. They still have a similar taste, but not that overly sweet taste that a sweet potato has. These are harder for me to find, but I am going to have to look for them more often. I much prefer them over their Louisiana counterparts.
Today’s bento contains rotisserie chicken wings, green beans, yummy yams, clementine slices, fruit & nut mix, and animal crackers.
Be the bento everyone! I hope you have a lovely Friday.
