I haven’t been posting for a while but I have been making bentos, although I forgot to take pictures of some of them. Lately my bentos are a bit plain, I haven’t been planning ahead and it shows.
Top tier: Rice and steamed cabbage with sesame dressing and a bit of vegetarian burger.Bottom tier: leftover bits of broccoli with sesame dressing and vegetarian burger.
The burger wasn’t as nice as I had hoped. For some reason it tasted pretty good the evening before, but it didn’t taste nice when I had the rest for lunch.
This month I also had the opportunity to show a Japanese couple around in Brussels for a couple of hours. I thought it’d be nice to speak Japanese again, so I met up with them. I had bought them some chocolate as present/souvenir (= omiyage). Of course they had bought something for me too. I love how beautiful japanese presents are wrapped/packed so I had to take a picture of it.
I love the way it’s all packed beautifully, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s really necessary because it’s bad for the environment.
Do you wonder about it sometimes?
I’m really grateful for the omiyage though. It was delicious!
