bento kitty

For Shinzi Katoh Fans

Not really a bento story but I know a lot of you love Shinzi Katoh and I just got my first order from the Japanese website, which has been updated with a new shopping cart feature, complete details are on my blog. They have tons of bento boxes too and accessories on his site. I got this adorable teapot set and more goodies.

Contents:
roasted chicken breast
broccoli rabe
yellow pear tomato
lite cheese
pastina with ramano, parsley, and ground pepper
Rainier cherries

I wrote a little bit more about the broccoli rabe over at my blog Boston Bento.  It's also called rapini and if you've never tried it, you should really pick some up.  I think it might be one of my favorite veggies/leafy greens out there.  It is naturally a bitter green, but mellows a lot with cooking.
