Curry is Yummy!
Coming home from a trip to find that I had large amounts of Japanese curry already made and waiting in the freezer brought forth feelings akin to winning the lottery. This stuff is a perfect foil to the rainy, dreary weather that is plaguing us this week. Add to that the fact that it freezes well and was awesomely easy to reheat and you know why I'm in love with this dish!
In the bento: Japanese curry and rice, chunks of pear in a container, baby corn spears and a cherry tomato.
The curry contains onion, carrot, potato and tofu. There is a small layer of rice underneath the curry sauce in addition to the sidewall of rice to keep the curry contained. A carrot flower with black sesame seeds and snap pea leaves gives the curry a little pizzazz. I am always amazed at what the black sesame seeds do to carrots - the orange color suddenly pops! The panda pick just adds a tiny bit of cuteness :)
Here is a link to my Japanese Curry recipe. It's very simple and totally incredible. (I think everyone should try it!)
