I have such good intentions for blogging. Lots of ideas of things I want to make, projects I want to develop. But as usual I’m snowed under in an illusion of busyness. In fact, so overwhelmed that this post I was going to do about being snowed under, got snowed under! So this bento is actually a couple of weeks out of date. ARGH!
What to do? Just perch your lunch on top of the pile and don’t let it get you down? I guess….but seriously though, this clutter and bother is really getting me down!!
And to top it off I’ve been sick a lot lately, which to me is a sure sign I’m not handling the load so well. I’ve had to chop a few things from my schedule, and I’m still thinking about dropping more. I thought maybe I’d even quit blogging! Terrible thought, go away right this minute!!
So anyway, here is this poor bento I made, but nearly forgot to post, because it was so lost under books and papers and thoughts. Somen noodles with spicy minced chicken, thai basil and chillies, and a dollop of homemade sweet chilli sauce (recipe here). Steamed and fresh veggies with homemade bento-takeaway-style miso salad dressing. Delicious! (Japanese dressing non-recipe = mashed up spoon of miso, splash of mirin, splash of rice vinegar, optional splash of oil. Shake-shake. Done.)
So anyway, long story short, that was weeks ago, and my desk looks pretty much the same. Only, the lunch is gone. <sigh>
