Wordless Wednesday {linky}: Family Obento Ideas - Rabbit & The Moon | Week 48


What's in my obento this week?
Stir-fry Ginger Pork, Bittergourd & Egg with Rice.

In Japanese folklore {月の兔, Tsuki no Usagi}, a beggar once asked some animals for food.
The rabbit was so kind that it offered to cook itself for the beggar to eat.
The beggar turned out to be a deity and to reward the rabbit for its virtuous spirit,
he brought brought it up to the moon to live forever.

Remember to spread cheer & charity this holiday season!! :)

Obento {お弁当} is a home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine and doesn't always need to be complicated or time-consuming. I hope to inspire you to create delicious, everyday obento meals for your family with these simple ideas and tools.

These photos are part of the 52 Weeks Family Obento Ideas series.
