My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 590: Red pickles


Back to the


Almond what? This is a confused lunch. It doesn't know if it is decent healthy American or Japanese food, or American or Japanese junk food.

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.
