again, I've deviated from the ideal of a mixture of
colors in each bento lunch by packing nothing but shades
of brown. There's a roast
beef deli sandwich on a cafeteria roll,
the latter of which turned out a tad darker than usual.
As the side I have off-white-shading-to-medium-brown
cassava chips, which are less brittle than potato chips
and seasoned differently. (Yum! Another salute to 99
Ranch Market for carrying stuff like this.) Finally,
for dessert I have a piece of
tan-colored almond cake, which is 1/4 of a "cupcake"
I got at 99 Ranch's bakery.
I packed this while thinking about the lunches I
had while working in England during Summer breaks when
I was in college. There was a little place near the
office where I'd go get roast beef or ham in a bun,
some beef or chicken flavoured crisps (potato chips),
and a Coke. Yes, I was always a health food nut. This
is in the same spirit, and brings back memories.
