Bento Boxes

Tonights dinner was yummy Bento boxes! Chris's parents gave me these boxes, and I love them as I've always wanted bento boxes of my own.

In these we had
Radish pickles with sesame seeds,
Salad of lettuce, tomato & pear, and
Rice with a leek & garlic sauce.

Leek & Garlic Sauce Recipe (too easy...)
Thumb sized lump of ginger (about 3cm x 1cm x 1cm)
1/3 of a leek
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mirin - 1 tablespoon
Soy Sauce - 1 tablespoon

Slice the ginger and leek into very fine matchstick sized pieces. Stirfry the ginger in the oil for about 1 min, then add the leek. When they've both cooked and become a bit browned & softer, add the mirin & soy sauce and cook until the sauce has thickened. Serve on rice for a nice, special touch!
