hey everybody, how are things in bento land? the past couple weeks have been crazy for me — i got a sort of promotion (i think?) and have been traveling a lot more for work, which is wreaking havoc with my meal planning schedule. then this past week i started feeling myself getting sick. i tried to head that off at the pass, but i currently have a terrible case of laryngitis… i am mostly resting today, trying to get my voice back in time for an important meeting tomorrow.
i hope you all have been well, and i can’t wait to catch up on bento posts and tweets!
tomorrow is a day where i know i will actually be at my desk for lunch, so i layered some of my favorite spicy tofu from the korean market under brown-and-white rice sprinkled with furikake. the back section has a tomato, steamed broccolini, some tangerine slices, two steamed brussels sprout halves, and a piece of simmered lotus root (also pre-prepared from the korean market). for a sweet treat i have a cup of vanilla yogurt with kiwi.
on top of the rice is an egg sheet version of our dog, ruby. whenever i put her harness on her to take her out for a walk, she does this leisurely stretch, with all four legs splayed out — so cute. akinoichigo’s new book (which is now available on yesasia for free shipping to the US) has a similar pattern for a cat, and as soon as i saw it i knew i wanted to use it for silly ruby.
not sure when i’ll be bentoing again, so in case i’m not back here for a while, hope you all have a great week!
