a simple one tonight, since last night’s was so involved. i find that omurice is a great way to use up scraps from bento projects, like the leftovers from cutting flowers. the filling of this omurice has, well, rice (duh), fried up with some leftover sweet potato scraps, a chopped vegetarian hot dog, some chopped leftover steamed broccoli, one of my last baby sweet peppers, some scallion and gochujang. i decorated with some simple cheese, sweet potato and purple carrot flowers, with pea pod “leaves.”
the fruit and veggie section is also simple — a few grape tomatoes, a piece of broccoli and some more pea pods, some clementine slices and blackberries with a food pick. easy, breezy lunch in less than 20 minutes (compared to last night’s 3 hours!).

i so enjoyed reading all the contest participants’ GRE vocabulary sentences — you guys came up with really smart and creative uses for those tough words! i wish i could award extra prizes based on my favorite sentences, but it’s a recession y’all! so for the winner, i turned to the random.org site, which generated a number between 1 and 67 (there were 67 entries):
the winner is… tami! some of you may know her as ABQ bento mama on flickr — she does really fun work. tami, holler at me with your address so i can get this prize package out to you!
