Fall is here!
Apparently Halloween ushered in the proper fall weather and now it's time for us to pull out all our sweaters and gloves. There are at least seven different colors of leaves in the trees around our house. It's the perfect weather to sip coffee and ruminate. I decided to post a bento of mine today, clearing the bento palate from the glut of Halloween cuteness. My absolute favorite part of this bento was the tiny purple flowers!
In the bento: Rice (haha, like you didn't already know that), tonkatsu-ish tofu slices, broccoli sprouts, tiny purple potato flowers, apple, potato salad, checkered cucumber slices, snap peas, a veggie gyoza and carrot leaves.
In other news, A-chan and I have joined the ranks of crazy people participating in NaNoWriMo! If you haven't been clued in to what that is: National Novel Writing Month. Yes, that's right. We're attempting to write a novel in a month. Two of my very best friends have been participating for years and this November I decided to throw myself into the frenzy. A-chan got all excited about it and wanted to sign up too. It's been three days and so far we're both keeping up our daily word goal. For me it's just a fun challenge. I'm hoping that for A-chan it will be a great time-management learning experience as well as fun.
