Salmon and Marinated Shrimp Salad for Bento

Good news!  My husband just got promoted to the Foreign Service equivalent of a 2 star General!  So proud of him.  Of course I’ve always known he was superior 🙂  Jade and I will finally join the officer and gentleman on Saturday in Strasbourg.  In the meantime, down the road I go tomorrow to pick Jade up for the weekend.

This week’s bento is pasta, meatballs and chicken drumettes to the left.  Salmon and marinated shrimp salad to the right.
