This post from Biggie at lunchinabox.net is integral for making sure you're not ordering a bento sized for a preschooler on eBay:lunchinabox.net/2007/03/07/guide-to-choosi
I was stoked to find out that my box is a little over 600 ml, which is what's recommended for ladies my age (though not for my height, oh well).
I'm also currently in love with justbento.com
. It's a bento blog written by a Japanese expat living in Switzerland. She's got awesome recipes there and on her expat food blog, justhungry.com
. That's where I found out how easy it is to make low-sodium dashi stock, even if you can't find kombu in your area -- just use the water from reconstituting dried shiitake mushrooms! Brilliant, considering how much I like tamagoyaki and dashimaki tamago.
