I have the winter blahs. This form of the cold-weather blues usually sets in at the end of January. between the freezing temps, the lack of sunlight, and the sometimes frightening driving conditions, winter eventually takes a toll on everyone, except the most thick-blooded of snow beasts.
I was born in Florida, and even though I was raised in Michigan and I now reside in northern Ohio, it’s safe to say that I am NOT a thick-blooded snow beast.
Of course, the days are getting longer, and each day brings us closer to the much-awaited arrival of spring. I’m holding out hope for an early thaw this year, since winter hasn’t been as rough as it usually is.
To perk myself up and to get my mind off of the winter blahs, I prepared this colorful bento. It features tuna cakes with cocktail sauce, provolone butterflies, Italian bologna hearts, more cabbage stir fry, an agar-agar jelly, and coconut curry rice with lime peel packed into my onigiri case.
Are you a warm-weather or cold-weather person?
