Menu: Penne Amatriciana, Spinach omelet, Cucumber sticks
Banana & Mandarin mikan for dessert
On Sunday evening I realised we had run out of rice. In a Japanese household this almost never happens and is unheard of. I failed to stock up our daily staple… To make matters worse, I even didn’t have time… agh… actually forgot to buy fresh meat or fish… Yes, I had a busy weekend.
This means I had to improvise something out of whatever we had in our fridge and pantry on Monday morning for our daughter’s bento. Luckily, there were some tomatoes and bacon in the fridge, which I magically turned into so-called Amatriciana sauce (tomato, bacon & onion). Served with penne pasta & parmiggiano, it is a perfect pasta dish to kickstart a good week. With the help of egg and spinach, it rather became a nice Italian bento box for our ever so hungry princess.
