I find it disappointing that after making a New Year’s resolution of posting at least twice, ideally thrice, a week, I end up not posting at all! Bad, I know, but my age old excuse, being busy with work, strikes again. I haven’t even been preparing bento as much as I should, sadly. Still, I had mad cravings for Japanese Curry last week so I made sure to pack the leftovers.
Because we don’t have a microwave at work (yet), I opted to use my thermal lunch kit. Not as warm as I’d like, but better than eating cold curry rice. This curry had pork, potatoes and carrots, ladled over some steamed rice.
On the side, I packed some carrot sticks and ranch dressing in one container, and strawberries and Mega M&M Peanuts in the other. The M&Ms intrigued me because they came in pastel colors. Quite a change from the usual brights.
This bento made me happy, simply because it’s a bento. I really miss having them regularly; lately I’ve been buying food from the mall. More expensive and not as convenient as packing my own lunch. Still, we’re moving into a new office soon—one with a pantry. That means access to a microwave and a refrigerator again! Yay! I definitely missed packing stuff that needs to be eaten warm, so expect stuff like Gyudon and Korean Beef Stew to make it’s appearance in this blog again, after a year’s absence.
