here we have today’s lunch: a vegetarian bento. clockwise from top left: onigiri made from sushi rice and lao violet rice; hard boiled egg “onigiri” with black sesame “nori”; boiled edamame with salt and toasted sesame seeds; avocado half with lemon juice, salt, and freshly ground pepper; grape tomatoes plugging the gaps; worcestershire sauce (for the egg) in a little strawberry sauce bottle.
i’ve mentioned before how much i love worcestershire sauce on hard boiled eggs. i discovered today that eating the egg in a muffin cup solves my problem of being unable to achieve ideal sauce saturation of the yolk… i can take a bite, put it back in the cup and douse a little more. it’s the little things.
p.s. i’ve been neglecting this place, i know. i have been eating, and taking photos, but i haven’t been able to justify the time it takes to actually empty the card, upload to flickr, futz with permissions, and post here. to the few of you who actually stop by semi-regularly, i’m sorry you’ve been looking at the same camera phone photo each time.
