Bento 200

My 200th bento is quite nondescript! I wanted it to pass as quietly as possible.

I had a competition to commemorate my 100th! I contemplated on my purpose of bento and decided that my core reason is still about packing healthy and generally good tasting food for my kids.

Traffic, if it occurs then great, otherwise no issues either.

So, today like any other school day, I present to you "just another bento"!!

It's spaghetti with tomato sauce topped with some Parmesan cheese. Some onion alfalfa with some salad cream.

There are two pieces of Meiji Macadamia chocolates for treat and two sardine rolls in puff pastry which I made last night.

I had some young guests (#1's friends) come over to my house last night and I made these sardine rolls in a jiffy.

I used two pieces of ready made puff pastry.

Recipe for the sardine filling:
1 (large) can of sardines
1 yellow onion (chopped)
3 tbsp of chilly sauce
1 tbsp of fish curry powder
Juice from lemon - to taste
pepper and salt to taste

1. Cook the onions in some oil till soft and translucent.
2. Drain half the sardine sauce and pour the rest with the sardines into the pot.
3. Mash up the sardines and cook with the onions.
4. Add chilly sauce and curry powder, lemon juice, pepper and salt to taste.
5. Cook till it becomes thick and dry.

Cut up the ready made puff pastry into 9 pieces.
Spoon the cooked sardine onto the center of the cut up puff pastry and roll up, sealing with some egg wash.
Spread some egg wash on top of the sardine puff.
Use a fork and pierce some holes on top of the puff pastry.
Bake according to instructions on the back of the puff pastry package.

Note: You can also use short crust pastry and it's just as delicious!
