Spork, like PF says, your Bentos give me inspiration! I love pictures! Heck, my Bentos are often not even Asian in nature - but I post them anyway.

Kathleen, I have to tell you, your sigline cracks me up every time I read it! When I was a young lad, "Mary Ann" in that show spellbound me. I thought she was just beautiful! Ginger never did anything for me.

For me, I guess it would be "A little bit Ginger, a Whole LOT of Mary Ann!

I was "in love" with the Skipper!

I am off to Vancouver today for a very important meeting which will determine if I qualify for a Pain Clinic Day Program. I have an hour lunch break and with my finicky tummy I don't want to eat out.

So, as my Bento and I go on our first big trip together, here is what I am taking.
- two vegetable spring rolls with my neighbour's home made plum sauce,
- The last of the rice dish,
- Some raw veggies
I will take my Cranberry juice in my water bottle and some green tea in my thermos cup.

I am looking forward to lunch already!

I hope the meeting and your bento went well. I don't much like the sweet-sour dipping sauce for spring rolls that Chinese restaurants serve, so your neighbor's plum sauce piques me. Nice lunchbox, LB!

It sounds very good! How does the neighbor make plum sauce? It sounds great!

I sat in the pain clinic waiting room rather than going to the cafeteria down the hall because it was quiet and they have comfortable chairs! Staff and other patients were intrigued by both the box and my food. The meeting was intense but good - won't know until next week if I qualify for the program.

I want to ask my neighbour for her recipe, so if I get it I will share it. It is not sweet at all, is more red in colour and much more appealing than those commercial sauces.

What a fun disaster!

First, I'm like, okay, soy beans don't have mammary glands. Their milk is not really milk. This pot looks way big enough for even five cups of cow milk to boil. Wrong! As soon as you see the soy bean solution from powder begin to rise, you're too late. It froths and boils over like an escaped alien blob creature engulfing your stove top. Yikes! The coagulant is fun though, sort of like molecular cuisine. Here are my molds in the sink for the instructional 20-minute set.

And the resulting tofu from my onigiri molds, topped with traditional scallion, ginger, shaved bonito and soy sauce.


Fun, but more importantly, it didn't taste good. Made me feel inclined to join the tofu-bleh crowd. Were it not for the steaming tofu bakeries I was entrusted to shop weekly as a five-year old for my mother, I will try again with whole dried soy beans and google for a good coagulating agent...
