Doctor Who. I only started watching it a few months ago and managed to plow through four seasons and several specials. I am only three episodes/specials away from the new season which is currently airing (on BBC America for me). I can't wait for my next Netflix delivery.
Since Doctor Who is a BBC show, I decided to do a British themed bento to go with my TARDIS.
A lot of my entertainment comes from England. I love Monty Python, Harry Potter, Ricky Gervais, Neil Gaiman... the list goes on and on. I don't know a lot about British food. "The Kipper and the Corpse" episode of Fawlty Towers comes to mind, and I wonder why that guy wanted to eat fish for breakfast. The one thing that is mentioned in nearly every British show/book I like is curry. Since I am assuming that they mean Indian curry, I decided to do a vegetarian curry and rice for my Doctor Who bento lunch.
I used a leak-resistant container for this lunch, because the curry is a bit gooey, and a microwave safe container, because I plan to heat this one up at work. Also, I chose a blue container because I couldn't easily make the TARDIS blue, as it should be.
The TARDIS is made from nori on rice-cheese. To top it all off, for dessert a Mars Bar! Get it? Because he travels through space... and Mars Bars are from England. I would have loved to include a Cadbury Flake, the best candy bar ever, but they are hard to find around here. Plus that wouldn't have fit the theme.
So, I'm off to watch Torchwood while I wait for my next episodes of Doctor Who to arrive.
