Yakisoba is Yummy!
Once again I deceived myself into believing that I would have a smidgen of free time during the Thanksgiving break. Wrong! On the plus side it was a fabulously fun week. These bentos were eaten at Zoo Atlanta while we sat and watched the Gorillas have a snack. I kept them plain and without characters since I would be carrying them through the zoo for a few hours before lunchtime. This turned out to be a great plan since I got very excited about the Red Panda who was incredibly adorable. There apparently was some jumping and squeeeing that could potentially have destroyed any characters.
After lunch I was excited to talk about bentos to the Japan Society of Georgia Perimeter College, woot! I really, really love to talk about bentos. This was the second time that I had trouble remembering the name of a Japanese recipe, though. It was Tsukune! Next time I'm going to have it tattooed on my hand, I swear. Thank you guys so much, I loved it and enjoyed meeting you all!
In the bentos: Yaki soba noodles with sauteed tofu, cauliflower, broccoli and carrots was the main part for both of us. A-chan had an apple bunny, baby corn and some black olives on picks. I had the apple pieces that were cut off to make the bunny and some cucumber slices.
