Lunch for Tuesday, June 12, 2011

This summer has been one of the hottest I remember.  Every day has been over 100 degrees and there is no relief in sight. 

I have seen a couple of heat related jokes lately that made me laugh.
"It's so hot the squirrels are using potholders to lift their nuts."
"It's so hot I saw two trees fighting over a dog."

I found some small pickling cucumbers at a farmer's market and paid only .94 cents for about 8 of them.  I sliced them, added some cut carrots, poured in some vinegar, sugar and salt & put them in the refrigerator.

In this bento I have purple jasmine rice, teriyaki chicken, broccoli, carrots, a grape tomato, refrigerator pickles with carrots and some grapes.

  1. I agree. Waaaay too hot! We've broke temperature records so many times thus far, it is losing the joke of it. Though I love that one: squirrels using potholders to hold their nuts... ha!
