I’m slowly but surely plowing through my post bank. A tough task, considering how many gigabytes of photos and thoughts are stored there. I was surprised to see a lone unposted bento post. I miss preparing bento, and knowing that a large number of my readers were drawn to Kitchen Cow by the bento posts, it felt like a small victory, unearthing this photo.
If you’re wondering about the dearth of bento posts, fact is, my circumstances have changed greatly. I’ve taken a break from the workforce to focus on other things. A great many things, yes—and working to make Kitchen Cow better than ever is among my list of tasks. Of course, while staying home means I don’t need to pack lunch anymore, it doesn’t mean I don’t have to. I still want to because it was always more about the creative and culinary challenge, rather than just a need to feed myself. So, let’s cross our collective fingers for a bento revival.
Oh yeah, the bento above! It features, clockwise from top left:
- Sautéed bean sprouts
- Leftover tuna teppanyaki from Omakase
- A salad of tomatoes, feta cheese and smoked salmon
I know, I know. The salad doesn’t exactly go with the bean sprouts and the teppanyaki but it’s something I like eating, so it’s still a good thing, don’t you agree?
