Well, hi there! We haven't spoken in a while. ^_^; Well I have been around, still struggling with my health issues, but I do have some good news. The sequel to The Just Bento Cookbook is now available for pre-order on the Amazons! The full title is The Just Bento Cookbook 2: Make-Ahead, Easy, Healthy Lunches To Go.

I will put up more links as the book becomes more available. And, I am working to revive the JustBento site before the book is born too. Yes I am.

 15年6月29日、カップヌードルブランド初のパスタ「カップヌードル パスタスタイル」が発売されます。 麺は従来のカップヌードルと同じフライ麺ですが、パスタのように太くて丸いストレート麺。容器は、ブランド初の湯切りタイプです。 いったいどんな味なのか???実食してきました。また、発売の狙い、「スパ王」とのすみ分けなどについても聞いています。>>【実食】カップヌードル初の「パスタ」、“イタリア人が認めなかった”のも納得!?http://trendy.nikkeibp.co.jp/article/pickup/20150622/1065328/?n_cid=nbptrn_fb

My latest article in the Japan Times is about somen, the very thin wheat noodles that are very popular in the summer. Did you know they used to be made so long that some people draped them from an upstairs window to eat them? ^_^

Soba, udon and ramen noodles are all well-known outside of Japan, but sōmen — the thin, white wheat noodles that are similar to Italian angel hair pasta —

I am in the throes of bringing JustBento.com into 2015 (i.e., making it mobile-friendly and cleaning up lots of cruft in the back). A question that came to mind is - how many of you follow blogs/sites via RSS these days? At one point JustBento had like 400K RSS subscribers (now a lot less than that not surprisingly since it's hasn't been updated in ages ^_^;). Are you more likely to keep up to date via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc rather than RSS? Do you subscribe to email updates? What other options are out there these days?

I got yet another angry email today regarding this old post. It's amazing how it stirs people up. I guess I should wish I could do that all the time with my articles. ^_^;

ETA: Actually this time the email writer was angry at me for 'stating the obvious', and saying 'MSG was evil' (which I actually didn't - I said 'if you are sensitive to it, as a few people are, it's not good....) But in any case, the article is now 8 years old, and it's still the one on Just Hungry that draws the most ire from several angles.
