FT Article

 There's an interesting article about bento in the Financial Times today, along with a fun recipe and news of a bento book being published.

Article: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/7a7ec45a-40db-11de-8f18-00144feabdc0.html?ftcamp=rss

The book is available for pre-order (for you Americans) here: http://www.amazon.com/500-Bento-Lunches-Recipes-Brilliant/dp/0955339855


I hope this is legal - I was so excited to see this article in the paper! Happy Bento-ing!

Bento # 555

Technically, I suppose this is a little late for a hanami-bento, but it was the only thing I could think of to put on my rice today. And bento-flowers have that large advantage that you can enjoy them regardless of the actual season *L*

So here is my dinner for tonight. I'm working late so I needed something to both cheer me up and sustain me during what's likely to be a very long Sunday afternoon/evening...
