Beef Cutlet (180)

It’s been miraculously sunny on Oahu for the past, I dunno, five days or so? It was getting to the point where on a day of sun you go out of the house and say, “Wait wait wait, what? IT’S NOT RAINING!?!” But then as soon as I’d go to fiscal or something, I’m about to go out the door when I hear roaring rain outside.

Someone mentioned an ice storm yesterday and I started joking that my brain couldn’t process such a term. Ice is in your water or soda! Ice is what you eat when you go to Baldwin’s or Waiola Shave Ice! It doesn’t STORM ice!

Anyway, point is, the seasons we have in Hawaii are basically “Sunny” and “Rainy”, but if I had to break it down into four pidgin seasons, I’d say:

Winter = “Stay Sum Cold Outside”
Spring = “Get Choke Rain”
Summer = “Frickin’ Hot”
Fall = “I No Can Stop Sweating”

Chicken Long Rice

Today I have this three bowl contraption that I bought at Price Busters. I’ve used a green one before for my salad kit once long ago and have had this pink one sitting around in a cabinet for quite some time since. I finally busted it out to carry some soup to work. I have here some Chicken Long Rice, made by my MIL.

Beef Cutlet

In the main dish bowl I have some green salad with grape tomatoes, which I dripped with 4 drops of Caesar Italian Lite. Then I have beef cutlet, rice, and corn. In the Hello Kitty bowl I put some katsu sauce.

Fruit Bowl

In my last bowl I have fruits. I cut two kiwis, half an orange, blueberries, and raspberries. Adding the oranges really brought the other three fruit colors together. I was really happy with how it turned out. To cut the orange I sliced it in half, then made half moon slices, then cut those in half to make little triangles.

As most people know, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I just got back into posting my lunches at LiveJournal and of course, the bento challenge for this week is a V-Day theme, so I have to think today how I want to do my entry tomorrow! My eggs expire tomorrow, so maybe I can implement tamagoyaki somehow…
