Talking Hey guys... remember me?

Hi all! It seems like its been forever since I've posted. (in reality, it's been about a month and a half) Anyway, I've been so busy busy busy. I started a new job as a pre-school teacher at a Montessori school... it's amazing and I love it but it is SO draining! It is very rewarding though.. I love the children and the staff are great.

Anyhow, I've still been cooking away.. trying new recipes and such. Most recently I've been getting into "bento" and that's been fun. I bring my lunch to work with me each day and it has been interesting learning to pack bento, trying different foods, and getting neat bento accesories and boxes. If you are unfamiliar with the Art of Bento (and it really is an art) then check out this link: All About Bento What is neat is that you can make it as simple or complicated as you like... Just check out this Bento Blog for her masterpieces (its in japanese but there are lots of pics) This one has simpler (but still beautiful) foods.

Anyway, enough about that... I hope you guys are all doing well and I hope to be posting more often again. I love this forum!

HI and welcome back. I checked out your link and the bento techinque is interesting. But ai think I'd be laughed out of the workplace as I'm seen as a rather odd guy for my love of the culinary arts already. And lunhc doesn't always come at a place where I can eat in an orderly fasion.

That said, it still looks like a great idea for those who could use it. And healthy lunches, well that beats the occasional micorwave burritoes from the gas station.

Hey Grumblebee! I've been wondering about you. Congrats on the new job! Teaching must be so rewarding. We thought about Montessori for our kids but it's just so expensive and a long wait list to boot.
