Shiso Leaves – A Nice Alternative To Lettuce

1 Sep

Three Tiny Little Spam Musubis

I have to admit, this bento did take me longer than a usual bento.  🙂  Today was Ms. Little Bubbles first day of school, and I wanted to give her something special.  She loves spam musubi and I thought I’d let her have this bento as a treat.  We usually don’t eat spam (if you are not from Hawaii, don’t gross out! LOL!), but as a special treat, I thought why not.  I planned on prepping all the food last night and just assemble this morning, but I was so tired, I fell asleep.  So, I was summoned by the alarm clock at 5 a.m. to fry the spam and make the tamagoyaki.  Now, the tamagoyaki gave me some problems (notice you are not seeing a side shot).  I definitely think I need a new pan.

Last week I picked up some shiso leaves and didn’t have a chance to use them until today.  I usually use lettuce leaves as garnish, but I wanted to venture off and try something different.  Shiso leaves are typically used in sushi dishes and is commonly found in Japanese food.
