I recently came across the blog Lunch in a Box, and instantly became obsessed. When I was a child, my mom used to make us these elaborate bento lunches. I was the envy of my friends. But was I thankful? Heck no! I wanted to buy my own food in the school canteen. I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy it back then. Perhaps it was the room temperature food, since you weren't suppose to microwave bento boxes. Nowaways, they have such a variety of bento boxes, including ones that are safe to microwave. Today, I went to two Marukais in Torrance and stocked up on goodies.
The result of my shopping spree.
Something to look forward to on Monday: onigiri, pork tenderloin marinated in Magic Dust, steamed sugar peas, and instant stuffings.
