Bento Diary





Broccoli, grape tomatoes galore, lima beans, carrots, and yummy crispy pork croquettes.

Again, I'm realizing that super originality is not only not practical, it's not even desirable. The little bits and bobs that fit in the cracks and make a balanced meal that stuffs the box tightly are not going to be wildly divergent from one day to the next.

I'm lucky if I can think up a new main dish--like today's croquettes--from time to time. Trying for wondrous variety just makes me waste food on silly mistakes.

That's interesting, about the importance of the box: I had already got the sense that it does a lot more than look pretty, and provide a degree of ritual.

And yes, I always eat at home, so I have no reason to bento. Some days I invest time and effort into making a pretty lunch (which yes, is likely to be lighter and healthier), but mostly I'm all about leftovers.
