I was bored at work yesterday and came across an awesome blog about making bento that inspired me to give it a go.  I went down to the local Asian supermarkets and Asian-run .99 shop for supplies.   I got a cute bento for $1 and whatever ingredients I needed for this tamagoyaki recipe [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja8fCHS4aRI]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja8fCHS4aRI
.  It came out pretty good, tho rolling the egg was quite difficult!  Mine was not quiiiiiite as pretty as the one in the video, but I think it takes a lot of practice to roll the egg like that.  The presentation is very simple since it was my first bento and I was running late for work.  

FYI... If I remember correctly the recipe doesn't say what temp to cook the eggs, I did it round med-low since the layer is so thin and you don't want them to burn.  I also used a round stainless frying pan as opposed to a rectangle non-stick tamagoyaki pan and it came out just fine.  I also added some sesame oil, and would ease up on the sugar next time I make this, but overall it was delicious, like the melt-in-your-mouth kind of mmmm.  I made the tamagoyaki last night and left it in the fridge overnight.  I ate it with Jasmine rice (apparently I'm out of my favourite sticky rice) and also ate Taiwanese cucumbers with daikon.  I hope other people like this recipe too... surprisingly easy!

Oh!  I forgot to mention the blog was http://www.aibento.net/ ^_^.  She does some really amazing stuff, won some competitions and all that jazz.  The blog started when she began trying out bento so check it out!

Yeah I've actually been doing it (work)daily... I'm not the super artsy type so I refrain from butchering my food into shapes that look nothing like I intended but the food's been super yummy!  It also gives me an odd sense of accomplishment.
