We are midweek here in Japan, but since I have time and still plenty of leftovers to last me tomorrow and Friday, I thought it would be nice to just go over the bento of this week right now:) As I mentioned previously, I will not be eating school lunches for personal reasons, so I… Continue reading Weekly Bento : WEEK ONE
While I did not get to do a proper Hanami this year as I did last year, one of my co-workers offered to drive me and two others to a man-made lake in Kawagoe where the cherry blossome were in full bloom and we had lunch. I took pictures with my regular digital camera, as… Continue reading Flowering Viewing
With this, my blogging about school lunch comes to a sudden halt. My school lunch ended on a high note as I was able to eat the 6年生の楽しみ給食 (6th grader’s special lunch) that consisted of apple jelly, fried chicken, two hashed potato star thingies, two sweet breads, and all in all yummy things.

So, this is a little late, but, here are the lunches for January. Recently, there has been an increase in school lunches… Continue reading This Month in 給食: January 2011
This is one of my favorite Japanese dishes, but I can never get the recipe right when I try to make it myself. There are a few places that have opened up in my neighborhood that sell them. Makes my bike ride to and from work smell fantastic! Not sure if these would be a… Continue reading Japanese Caramelized Sweet Potatoes
