remember when i got a bento box in the mail? well, i finally got a chance to use it today. hmmm…. making a pretty one is a little harder than it looks. here’s what i ended up with:
yeah. the top box is all white food. that’s not great. plus, there’s too much wiggle room in that top box and everything was all squished to one side when i opened the box. oh well, still tasty. the top box is trader joe’s chinese dumplings and plain rice balls. the bottom box was leftover beef from shish-ka-bobs, and broccoli–steamed (until not crunchy–see note on green beans from yesterday) and salted, then tossed with soy sauce, lemon juice, and a dash of worchestershire. the broccoli was way better than i’d thought it would be. in fact, everything was way better than i’d thought it would be. do you think it was because it was in this cute container? maybe….
i also realized i needed something to drink and some utensils, so i decided to stop at the moco market again because i remembered that they had fun bottled fruity drinks and free chopsticks. and of course, i couldn’t resist buying another plate of “frushi.”
y’know, the more i look at it, the more that bento box sort of looks like a cloudy day above a boulder-filled forest. maybe i accidentally did make a pretty one!
not quite sure what this phrase means…
