Bento noob reporting in.

*peeks in* Um, hello. ^^ First time poster, long time lurker here. apple_garden has been encouraging me to start making my own bento, so here I finally am, with my very first bento! It's not the greatest, but it think it could've ended up worse considering I never really cook anything (let alone try to make onigiri...), and I've never used an English kitchen to do so... It's surprisingly different from a Finnish one. x_x; *coughs* I managed to get the fire alarm going thanks to the gas stove.


Upper tier:
- onigiri rolled in furikake with an umeboshi puree filling
- two (rather wrinkly) octopus sausages
- boiled sugar snap peas with some oriental spice mixture on top
- strawberries
- pig-shaped soy sauce bottle

Lower tier:
- sushi rice with furikake sprinkled on top

I probably should have started with something easier but oh well, the kitchen didn't catch fire. :D Overall I'm satisfied with how it came out, but I think I overcooked the rice, it ended up SUPER sticky, almost porridge-like. T__T Any tips or pointers on that? Also a mental note to self; when it says on the umeboshi jar that you should use it sparingly, it really means VERY sparingly. My onigiri ended up as a salt bomb rather than a pleasant oriental adventure for the taste buds. :(

Anyway, hopefully you'll see more from me soon. ^^
