The little panda shaped soy sauce bottle in today’s lunch is part of a small package of bento goodies a friend brought back from Japan for me after a recent visit. I’ve been eyeing these little bottles for awhile, but the price of buying them over the internet is a big prohibiting factor. Especially when I know that they are not that expensive to buy in Japan itself. I feel very lucky to have gotten my hands on some now and am going to have lots of fun using them in the future.

This is my first post for 2010, so happy new year everyone, I’m looking forward to sharing a year of foodie adventures, advice and camaraderie with all of you here and out in the rest of the foodie blogosphere. I have a few things up my sleeve for this year, the first of which will be in celebration of my third blogoversary later this week, so keep an eye out for a few non lunch posts.
In the interest of improving my lunch pictures I’ve taken to photographing my lunch in the morning before I go to work instead of at night when I actually pack it. So that I can take advantage of some natural light and not have to use the flash on my camera. Let me know what you think, any feedback you have would be really appreciated.
- Pasta salad with tubetti pasta tossed with pesto, orange peppers, asparagus and slices of rosa tomatoes and
- two apricots.
