It's a balmy -20 F. outside as I write this. In a minute I will get dressed in 372 layers of clothing, venture out and attempt to start my car, and mosey off to work. Schools are closed today but my university (Motto: "Hell No We Won't Close!") is open for business as usual.
Jan's Bento has a hot theme to warm him up:
1. Szechuan shrimp stir-fry
2. Polenta wedges fried in hot chili oil
3. Bitter melon salad with lots of fresh ginger
4. Wasabi peas and M&M's
That should put the fire in the belly! He loves hot food so this should be OK.
I'm still seeking the perfect method for transferring soy sauce to the cute containers; it's messy with the syringe, and when I have soy sauce in a coffee cup, I am at high risk of drinking it by accident this early early in the morning. Hazards of bento!!
