Lunch Box 642: Spring?

The weather in Atlanta has been insane. Warm Spring weather, then down to the 30s with snow flurries for a few days, then overnight the temperature jumps up by another 20 degrees. Oh, and tornadoes, but those are typical of Spring in the south.

Anyway, I've got a Spring lunch here. I don't care if it refuses to act like Spring, the calendar says it is. There's some beef & broccoli stir-fry, light-fried plantains, edamame, and sakura mochi (onigiri type).

The sakura mochi is the spring-specific part of the meal. In Japan, people have hanami - cherry blossom viewing parties - when the cherry trees bloom in Spring. I couldn't find a cherry tree to sit under, but from my 9th floor office window I can see some dogwoods.

Zoo Lunch

Hello bentolunch members ( ' w ' ) I used to post a long time ago, but I've been away at college and unable to make any bento ( ; ~ ; ) Fortunately, my family went to the Zoo over spring break, so I prepared a bento for each of us!


This first one is the top tier of my mom's lunch. There's cherry tomatoes, a veggie medley, cucumber slices, a cheese stick on a heart pick, and homemade japchae!
