Lunch for Wednesday, June 8, 2011
I called a company that said they could come out and remove the bees. The man showed up an hour later and rang the doorbell to say he left some of his equipment at home. He needed to go back home and get it. That took almost two hours since he lives a couple of towns over from mine.
I saw on the news this last weekend about one of the homes destroyed in the recent tornado's and they said they use to have bees. I am wondering if my bees that magically showed up were evacuees of the tornado's? That's an idea.
But now back to food.
I used one in my lunch today. At first I had no idea what I was going to do for my lunch other than the apricot. The rest of my family was snoring away since The Kid is on summer break and Mr Man took off work the rest of the week. So I cut it in half and removed the pit. I heated up some purple jasmine rice and laid it down in the box to look like a sheet. I placed half of the apricot for a head, colored some provolone cheese for some arms and facial details, then added some soy wrapper for hair. I also added some provolone Z's since that is what I was hearing from the bedrooms.
In the other part I have the other half of the apricot, a mini sweet pepper, yellow squash, cherry tomatoes, chicken teriyaki and ham flowers. It sure is good to be back to making bentos. AND while I was shopping on vacation I started to collect some items for another bento giveaway later this summer. Keep watching for it.
