An Embutterance Some people like to stick with a national theme in their bentos. Japanese food, or Korean, or American (whatever that is). Well, my theme is eclecticness.* I have stir-fried crab sticks & vegetables, which is basically Japanese yakisoba without the soba. Then I have British Yorkshire pudding topped with melted butter. Incidentally, I didn't make it the traditional way, with beef drippings; I used drippings from Thanksgiving.** And finally, I have purple sweet potato pie, which is a twist on what I think is a North American dish. ***
