could be more basically all-American than meat 'n' potatoes?
Don't answer that - I don't want to get into discussions
of politics and fast food chains. Lemme try that again,
I likes me some meat & taters. So do lots of
other people in the world, including in Japan, where
jyaga (translation: meat & potatoes) is a common
stew-without-the-liquid meal. In the other half of the
container is a green
salad, half a French
bread mini-baguette, and little
containers with butter and ginger salad dressing.
By the way, this weekend I tried somen, a summer
dish of noodles in chilled water. It's not really suitable
for bento, but since it's tasty I've cheated a little
and added it to the recipes
page. Try it and enjoy!
