It’s Wednesday in Japan and we have another colourful bento. There are a few rules in Japan when making a Bento, and one of those rules is to try and use 3 to 4 colours in the bento. The wife has the red tomato, the green cabbage mixed with those small shrimp. White is the macaroni and cheese and a daikon and bean sprouts salad. Plus she added an yellow dish my lemon chicken wings.
