Bento 1

I've recently become fascinated with bento boxes, in large part due to the wonderful moblog of Mizuko Ito.

I'm not all that interested in authenticity--it's the idea that I love. Little lunches of many delicious and healthy foods, contrasting taste, texture, color. The above is my second box. The first one was...ick. I should have taken a picture anyway, but by the time I got done peeling too-fresh eggs, I was cranky. I don't own anything approaching a real bento box--plastic or otherwise--yet, so gladware will have to do.

Today's is mostly leftover zushi and tempura veggies from Yuki, plus sliced red pepper, and marinated zucchini salad with carrot.

Elegant. If nothing else, a treat for the eyes. Who could want a flabby old sammich when they could have this?

Also, to TSU, phbbbt!
