Enjoying the colorful sweet potatoes I bought last sunday at the wet market; just look at the lovely purple color! Hope the vendor is there tomorrow at the market again!

This bento has the balance of my dinner the nit before: Pan fried salmon in olive oil and butter served with steamed sweet potatoes, french beans and fresh tomatoes. Sauce was chopped ginger, onions, tomatoes sauted in olive oil with lashings of worchester sauce.

The Lock&Lock bento box is one of my favourite - a cute size square
and it goes nicely into this bag!
