Bento Prep

A visit to a Korean grocery store, H Mart. The Mouse picked up a lotus root segment.

Lotus Root

Cut off both ends, peel outer layer (potato peeler), rinse outside and inside thoroughly, and slice thin.

Lotus Root, Prepped

Boil in salted water, The Mouse forgot how long, maybe ten minutes or so. Rinse thoroughly, boil in plain water for another ten minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Dressed with a little bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.

The whole lotus root segment should be enough for The Cat’s bento this week. 🙂

The Mouse did the prep on the weekend, process would take too long weekdays.

Be well, eat good.

The Cat bought discounted gift cards at Costco. She used to frequent the restaurant but relocation of her office made it less accessible. The Cat had to use an expiring discount at Macy’s, good opportunity.

The Cat and The Mouse decided to share one pasta and one salad to cut down on calories.

Cappellini Pasta with Meat Sauce

The Cat added on fresh spinach, fresh mushroom, and roasted tomato.

Chopped Salad

The salad doesn’t look like much but hidden was roasted chicken and salami. Mmm!

Crunchy Brussels Sprouts

Perfect accompaniment. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.
