Autumn Bento #8

Autumn in Miami is a very tricky thing. The ambient temperature yesterday was about 99 degrees in the shade. Despite our forcast signs of plastic pumkins are starting to appear in the stores-Halloween is huge here. All we need in Miami is an excuse for a big block party. This bento is my attempt to get into the seasonal mode. The lower tier is filled with golden curry (chicken breast, potato, calabaza,dried cranberry) plus a sliced apple. The top tier contains rice with scallions and pumpkin picks. I used the curry and the calabaza for the first time last night for supper. I loved it, although it could have used some salt. I couldn't sell it on another soul in my house. Too many vegetables for one child, too orange for another and too bland for my husband. The truth is I cook most of the time for them and sometimes just for me. Last night was my turn.Posted by Picasa

  1. Yikes! Miami! My inlaws are in cocoa beach and we visited once in August and I thought I would DIE. So hot and muggy! You'd think your bentos would all melt ;)

    The golden curry sounds really yummy!
