My post is a few days late (things have been crazy and sleepless around here), but on Wednesday, I finally got to try out the Zojirushi mini thermal bento set that my grandparents bought me for graduation.
There was a mix-up with the original order, in which they thought (and the invoice said) that they had bought the larger, metallic blue version (blue is my favorite color, and I have a big appetite), but it turned out that the company charged us the price of the green one, and sent the green one – and it became just too much of a headache trying to get in touch with them. So I kept the green one.
And, much to my surprise, I packed WAY TOO MUCH FOOD. I was pretty stuffed about 3/4 of the way through the rice. I think I may have packed the container a little too full. Next time I know. 🙂
Thermal Container: white rice sprinkled with scallions and Chinese shredded pork (an ingredient that, apparently, is also known by the very strange name of “pork floss”)
Larger Sidecar: stir-fried tomato and eggs (with ginger and scallions)
Smaller Sidecar: stir-fried broccoli in sauce.
On the side: apple, citrus punch [orange juice mixed with 7up (not pictured)]
A thought: it would be SUPER cool (hah! if I ever had the time!) to do a photo essay – or rather, a series of portraits – on the people in the MFA program posing with each of their personal libraries. I’d need to get better at taking portraits first, though. Hm.
