Today for lunch, I bought a bento. I do this quite often nowadays as I can buy one for $5-$6 on average and it will feed both myself and Ryu for lunch.
Things aren't really the same here in Japan as they were in the U.S. I felt that just about everything in the U.S. could be made cheaper at home, but I don't often find that to be the case here. The grocery store seems to be just as expensive as buying a lunch at a convenience store or somewhere, so sometimes, I feel it's best to just buy enough for us to eat rather than buy larger amounts in the store and then try to find ways to cook everything before it goes bad.
Anyway... To the point of this blog.
Todays, lunch made me think that it may be interesting to document some of the food Ryu eats every once in awhile. Today's bento was spaghetti based and, after he was finished, it was all over him. Quite the mess!
I thought I should take some pictures, but then I thought it would have been better with some before shots of the food... Then I thought it would be better with a small food review... Basically, the more I thought about it, the more it became kind of like a production in my head.
So, would anyone be interested in seeing a blog once every week or two about something Ryu has eaten?
I will probably have a pic of the food after it has been purchased or prepared along with the approximate pricing in U.S. dollars.
My review in the following format:
Brief Taste Synopsis and 1-10 score
Brief Value Synopsis and 1-10 score
Ryu's View - This will be a pic of him after eating and will include two 1-10 scores. One score will be the enjoyment factor based on how much he seemed to like or dislike it and the second will be an ease of cleanup score.
For the record, today, Ryu's scores would have been an 8 for enjoyment and a 3 for ease of cleanup. The only good news was that it didn't end up in his ears or hair, otherwise the score would have been dragged down even further.
