This, that, and the other Here's an end-of-the-week festival of little leftovers, perfect for one of my small compact bento boxes. In roughly left-to-right, bottom-to-top order (because I feel like it, that's why) we have: steamed kabocha, a cassava fritter, baked Japanese sweet potato, takoyaki, zucchini & onion stir-fry, toasted kabocha seeds, and some lotus chips.
