Two unconnected items I’ve been meaning to share:
My new thermos. It’s a 10 oz food container (currently out of stock at Amazon, but I got mine for less at Zabar’s) from Thermos. It’s a little bigger than the warm-food container in my bento kit, plus it’s all metal and seals completely, so it’s pretty perfect for the entree part of lunch at work. The metal stays cool to the touch even with boiling water inside.
The second item is a link to Jaden Hair’s demonstration of how to open a pomegranate, since they are still reasonably cheap in the market (or at least the one I go to after work is still selling them 3/$5). The video’s from her appearance on local morning television and the takeaway point is to work under water. I don’t remove the tops and bottoms, usually just quarter the thing, but it’s a fantastically neat and fast way to get yourself a bowl of pomegranate seeds.
