bento box is not one of my prettier ones, but, being
airtight and well-divided, it's the best I have for
stewlike dishes, of which today's niku jyaga
(Japanese meat & potatoes) is one. And I followed
that up with more potato, namely baked purple sweet potato, and
since it is both sweet and purple I officially declare
that it is in a different food group, so there is no
actual repetition here. Then there's some more honey-baked
kabocha, a little stand of steamed
broccoli, and a mochi.
Cooking this batch of niku jyaga was quite hard.
Not that the recipe itself is difficult - it's quite
easy, In fact - but I was hungry when I started, and
it takes about an hour to make. The last 15 minutes
seemed so long.
