John and I took a trip to Matsushima Bay, and of course, a day trip needed a bento lunch. Sunshine and greenery makes the photos much lovelier than usual, hence the fact there's 4 for just 1 bento. John was being very good natured, posing for the photos despite being hungry! The bento tasted really yummy, but then everything does in the sunshine after a long walk!
Miso Aubergine (Eggplant). (The no hassle way I make it is to boil the aubergine until soft, drain it, re-add it to the pan with miso, a little mirin and a little sugar. Cook for a few minutes.)
