Revenge of the Bento
Some of you may remember that I used to ‘black box’ it to work every day. This past year’s frenzy kind of put a wrench in that and I succumbed to the siren song of really bad lunch options (KFC, I’m looking at you). I recently dug the bento boxes out of hiding and began anew. I didn’t have time for much prettifying this morning, but we have to start somewhere –
Bottom left corner – Roasted butternut squash. Salt, pepper, olive oil, high heat oven. Voila.
Bottom right – Leftover jambalaya. Recipe from a 1954 copy of the Picayune Creole Cookbook. So good.
Upper section – Fuyu persimmon slices and very lightly pickled cucumber wedges, lil bit of sweet, lil bit of sour
Past bento lunch experiments are at the old blog, but you can still view them here.
