Hee...I just realized I said "another new box" below, when I hadn't posted this one yet.
Another new bento box! We went to Anzen today, a rare occasion since it's a bit of a trip. I stocked up on delicious things, and found this box. It's rather large, and would be best used to serve a meal for two. I think I shall use it for a picnic.

Bento 22 January 06
The faces are leftover spaghetti, meatless balls, and roasted tomatoes. For the Spousal Unit (left), eggs in a bed of dill, roasted asparagus, and balsamic hummus with pistachios. For me, carrots and a tuna bagel.

Yummy Lentil Splog
Tonight I made a variation on dhal soup, intended to be thick enough to serve over rice. The result was worth writing down.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until slightly browned. Add spices, garlic, lentils, and stir for just a minute and get everything coated in spices. Add the coconut milk and half of the vegetable broth. Let cook for about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring them in well. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender. Serve over rice.
