Bento

I know today's April Fool's Day, but I'm horrible at playing tricks or making jokes.  I'm usually the recipient of the trick/joke. But today is a bit of an off day for me because yesterday was in no way a day for cooking. Over the weekend, a close relative's mom had passed away and the funeral was yesterday afternoon. So it was a bit of an emotional day for me. I gave my first eulogy ever. Extremely difficult to do especially when I'm talking through tears. But I'm glad I did.

So for today, I'll leave you with a really cool video on "how to make a bento." There's even a really cute doggy in it. I've always had a fascination with bentos. Not just because of the delicious eats people pack into them, but also the different containers they come in. Whenever I travel to Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, I have the habit of checking out the different styles of bento boxes. Maybe I should start a little collection. :)

So sorry to hear about your loss, Jenn. I'm sure your relatives really appreciated you doing the eulogy. Hope you're doing OK :)

And I've seen this show 'Cooking with Dog' before - hilarious! The sausage octopus is brilliant - I'm totally going to make that! And the chef is a true master with that tamago pan (puts me to shame). I love bento boxes because I'm all about variety, even more fun to collect the cute containers.

Oh Jenn, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It must have been difficult to do the eulogy but at the same time a way to really bring closure and so your love for your relative.
