Play With Your Food!
One thing I love about the Japanese is the importance they place on making everything beautiful. Even their lunchboxes.
Bento are home-packed lunches that usually contain rice, a meat, and a vegetable. It could seem a bit bland if not for the artistic miracles performed using these humble ingredients.
One of the masters of the bento craft is the woman behind Anna the Red's Bento Factory. Her amazing blog not only contains pictures of her handiwork (shown above and below), but also detailed instructions for making everything from snowflakes to Super Mario mushrooms.
Since most of you should soon have some time on your hands, I suggest you check it out!
PS: Happy Snow Day
