bento# 59: mamenori/crab rolls

bento 59

I ❤ this bento box. So easy to pack.

So I’ve had these imitation crab sticks in the freezer for a few weeks now, trying to think of an interesting way to use them. The most obvious use is California rolls; but as previously stated, I don’t like sushi enough to go through the headache of making it.

So this is kind of weird, but what I wound up doing was spreading a thin layer of whipped cream cheese on a mamenori sheet, rolling a stick up in it, and cutting it into quarters. I also have tobiko to top it with, but I didn’t want to put it on when I packed it, so I have it on the side. (Since I don’t drive, between the bicycle and the bus my bentos can knocked around pretty hard before I get to work, and I figured the tobiko would slide off.)

I also have:

  • 2 sushi rice onigiri
  • Veggie potstickers
  • Honey tangerine
  • Instant miso soup
  • Cookies. I think they’re like Hello Panda, except they’re koalas.
