Lunch Box 280: What bento should be

Yum! Here's a downright hardcore bento for ya! I start out with tamago sushi and smoked salmon sushi, because it's been too long since I made sushi. The tamago sushi, BTW, is made with slices of rolled omelet rather than flat slabs of egg because I like the pretty spiral pattern. Then I have some turkey bratwurst cut into coins, baked sweet potato, snow peas stir-fried in olive oil, and a fruit salad with grapefruit, apple, and pomegranate seeds.

The turkey brat wasn't really that appalling gray. It seems that there's always something in my bento boxes that doesn't photograph just right. Either the rice will be glaring white, or the purple sweet potato will be almost black, or the carrots will look like they're made of neon. That's what I get for not being a professional photographer.
