is a confused lunch. It doesn't know if it is decent
healthy American or Japanese food, or American or Japanese
Here I have some okonomiyaki, made
on a day when I didn't have much in the way of toppings
and fillings - so, what the heck, I cut up some turkey
bacon and mixed it in. Result: good! (The little container
is filled with okonomiyaki sauce, of course.) Then there's
the everpresent steamed
broccoli and some simmered
shiitake mushrooms that think they
look classy. And next to the Kool-Aid pickles
they actually do. Finally, I have apple slices
and almond jelly for dessert.
If you pack almond jelly in your bento lunch, don't
expect to be able to eat it with chopsticks. That way
lies madness, not to mention humor if anyone sees you.
Pack a little fork or toothpick or something you can
skewer those slippery bits with.
