Today will be the last lunch I make for several days. I will be going out to lunch with a friend tomorrow and then next week will be vacation. I will try to take some pictures of my meals while on vacation and post them here. I am sure to be eating a wide variety of foods, so it should be interesting.
For today's lunch I really didn't have anything planned when I woke up this morning. I liked the way yesterday's turned out so much that I couldn't think of anything for today. So I just started throwing things together. I pulled out the rest of the green beans that I have had all week. Still not tired of them. And I pulled my last bit of sesame chicken from the bento stash in the freezer. And that is also the last piece of broccoli and lettuce I have in the frig. My refrigerator looks so bare but that is the way I wanted it while I was gone. I wanted to make sure there is nothing in there to go bad, grow fuzz or stink.
I started to make rice but was short on time so I opted for rice noodles. They even were thrown into three different containers until I made up my mind. Then I thought I would mix together some peanut butter and hosin sauce to go with them. Sounds strange I know, but I like it. And when I was trying to figure out what container I would put the sauce in I saw my corner silicone cup. I put some in and had I more sauce than would fit. So I filled up my second corner cup. I tucked the containers in with the noodles and walked away from my lunch to start to get ready for work. When I came back and looked at my meal I saw a panda. Faceless of course, but I thought it would be a good fluffy panda. So I made the eyes, nose and mouth from grapes since they were sitting there.
I have not been liking the taste of my nori. Maybe it's the brand, I don't know, but it has me trying to think of other things to use. Unfortunately it is the best when you need a solid black for decorating. I looked into the soy wrappers but none of them come in black. I may get them anyway since they do come in other fun colors.
