These week I present... not really a bento. What? We had a lot of leftovers to use up, and bento-making just didn't come up.
I don't consider this at all a bento, because
- it's made of leftovers,
- it's decidedly un-Japanese*, and
- it's totally designed to be refrigerated and nukerowaved.
But it's packed kinda sorta in a bento-like fashion, so hey! It'll do for a bento friday. It's only cheating a little, right?
a totally cheating non-bento: leftover ribs and leftover mac and cheese
In other news, eating delicious sauce-covered ribs at a computer desk is a bit of a challenge.
*There's totally an argument to be made that non-Japanese food can still be bento. I'm just not entirely feeling it, at least in light of the other conditions listed.
