In yet another frightful display of non-traditional food choices, I bring to you: my second bento! Let's not kid ourselves, it's all about filling the pretty little boxes. With pretty little food.
Tier 1: Meatballs
Step one: prepare meatballs according to my recipe here. Put in the box, fill up empty spaces with cherry tomatoes.
Tier 2: Fried potatoes with scallions
3 small potatoes
oil for frying
pepper, salt, chili
2 scallions, chopped
Peel the potatoes and cut them into relatively thin slices. Fry them in an open frying pan until they're soft and partially brown. Season with salt, chili, and pepper. Add the scallions.
I made myself a dip of one part sweet chili sauce and two parts hot ketchup to with both the potatoes and the meatballs. Remove the "chili" or "hot" part wherever that seems necessary.
